"My Name is Khan. I'm not a terrorist."
It's very unusual for an Indian film to get the backing of a major Hollywood studio like 20th Century Fox, but My Name is Khan did. And the investment is paying off. The film earned $2.3 million in the US last weekend. It has also became Bollywood's biggest success in the UK, taking in £936,000 at the weekend box office.
My Name is Khan was released in a storm of controversy after a dispute between its star, Shah Rukh Khan, and Shiv Sena, a hardline Hindu party in India. Khan had angered Shiv Sena by saying Pakistani cricket players should be included in the Indian Twenty20 competition, which starts next month. Shiv Sena, which sees itself as a defender of traditional Hindu values, tried to stop the film's release. The premiere in Mumbai was marked by tight security.
"People have liked the movie, which we're really happy to see, and it's not because of the controversy," Khan's wife, Gauri, who co-produced the film, told the BBC. In the film, Khan plays a Muslim whose life changes after the 11 September 2001 terror attacks in the US.
