Fox Star, Abu Dhabi tubthump 'Khan'

My-Name-Is-KhanBollywood Super Star, Shah Rukh Khan's Starrer "My Name Is Khan" would be distributed and cross-promoted by Fox Star Studios and Abu Dhabi production arm Imagenation.

"The movie, which follows Khan's character on a journey across America to win back the love of his life, tackles post-9/11 attitudes in the West toward Muslims," said a source.

After a gap of several years, Khan would be seen with actress Kajol and under direction of Karan Johar. Previously, the trio worked together on Bollywood blockbusters such as "Kabhi khushi kabhie gham" and "Kuch kuch hota hai."

It will be on 10th Feb when movie will receive its World premier in Abu Dhabi. That will be followed two days later by its European release at the Berlin Film Festival. Fox Searchlight releases the movie in the U. S.

Notable sum of $250 million in co-financing and co-production deals with Participant Media and Hyde Park Entertainment, a $100 million pact with National Geographic Films as well as a $10 million development deal with Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald has been invested by Imagenation, which is working with Fox for the first time.

Imagenation chief exec Ed Borgerding told, "The movie itself is a powerful reflection of the current state of racial profiling and discrimination pre- and post- 9/11 in the USA."
