1) A superhit film* centred around 9/11. 2) Distributed by Hollywood biggie, Fox Searchlight. 3) A protagonist with Asperger’s Syndrome. 4) A mainstream film starring a Muslim which tackles anti-Islamic stereotypes. 5) A meeting with the president of the United States. 6) Bollywood’s biggest star who runs into trouble in his home country with the lunatic fringe in Bombay.
Will Shah Rukh Khan pip Aamir Khan and other aspirants (and ‘perspirants’) to become the first Indian star to bag an Academy Award for Majha Naam Khan?

I don’t think he should get a Oscar for his movies being not allowed to screen in Mumbai.
You are wrong. A die-hard fan of his tweeted that he should be given Nobel Peace. Can you beat that?
no. nobel peace prize is more like it:)
Unfortunately to get an Oscar the movie also needs to be good. Which MNIK is not!
Was he the same guy who said “he wanna be a pornstar” and our police hammered and sweared upon a press personnel for his porn activities in IIPM.
yes he should get it. after all oscars are meant for these ; but they need a threesome with him performing with wife and son to qualify!!
with all investments in dubai hotels he can achieve that too.
Wow, so the high command has issued a decree of Oscar for SRK :)
Not sure what leverage they have. Neither of SRK or Karan Johar are joos, Fox searchlight is a minor player, not a Paramount or WB. Slumdog recently won big in oscars, so its kind of too soon. But slumdog is technically british, so should be ok. Autism is a big plus though, but not enough.
Obama got a Nobel prize, so why cant SRK get an oscar. But you never know how low kaangi can stoop to, may be they will make a deal of going easy on Monsanto and other Agri giants in return?
Interesting to say the least.
BTW SRK was giving away autographed body scan images of his at Heathrow, claiming that it would be very embarassing if one were not well endowed.
If it takes SRK so much effort to promote his movie wonder what poor Salman Khan needs to do? Killing endangered deer or running pedestrians over will definitely not do it, neither does he have the money to pay off all the major news channels to cover his contorversy 24/7. Pity that guy. May be he will end up casting look alike SRK/Amir Khan as the baddie in his next movie :)
Wonder what controversy will the some other bollywood actor start, to promote his/her movie.
He should be left alone in peace and let to enjoy the success of his film!
I understand this is supposed to be tongue in cheek but still want to put my two cents.
How is this a superhit film just days after its release?
While it is admirable that this syndrome has been highlighted, can just that be a reason for nomination? Maybe we need to have an Oscar for best subject.
The other points are not remotely connected to winnability except for news value. Oh wait, is there a new category for the most controversial film perhaps?
you can never say,the question is not whether one deseves it or not,there are other factors that decide that.after Saif got a Padma award,we must be ready for anything.For now, Shah Ruk must be satisfied with a peaceful release.
“1) A superhit film centred around 9/11.” Don’t you think it’s too early to declare that?
ROFL..Oscar for SRK? Churumuri avre nimgu SRK avru swalpa yenaadru kottiddara? Already I am half dead watching our “national media” bombarding SRK-Sena news, adra mele ee Oscar-Nobel joku bere.
For me somewhere down the line I feel this is all made up controversy. After all SRK has to compete with Aamir Khan too. Only script can never make a movie win outright above it its Kjo’s movie, so forget about script:P So he is upto what we all managers do – “marketing”. The same thing happened with his airport fiasco too LOL.
You are joking right?
Anything that comes from Karan Johar stable is a superhit for our media people…it does not matter that there are more watachable and well made movies in other languages that do not get even a mention in the ELM let alone extensive publicity.
God save us from this bollywood mediocrity and hyperactive media which willy nilly wants to declare every piece of turd from bollywood a superhit movie
And regarding SRK getting an oscar…who gives a f!@#$k
Heathrow officials have denied what SRK has been saying about autographing his scans at the airport. perhaps the lying increases his chances for the Nobel Peace !
MNIK is an okay movie. More watchable than the previous crap dished out by Karan Johar.
You cheddis should go watch it for a change before judging it.
Oh never mind, it goes against your twisted principles to chill out and have some fun.
At least let others do what they want to do in peace – banning movies is not in good form. You can take out your hate on SRK on the forums.
This is insane. Nobody can even compare SRK with Amir. Amir is an actor with such a talent and where is SRK? Media/Press people always love SRK since he showers lot of things on those people. Where as Amir got real talent. SRK got enough money to spend on Media folks to get publicity all over the place.
kavitha akka: You are right. Anyone admiring and giving 5 stars to junk produced by Johars and Chopras got to be really dumb. As some one tweeted “Remove 2 stars from MNIK’s rating. Those are from Pakistan’s flag”. When the whole country is reeling under inflation and other problems, our media is licking his highness retarded SRK’s a$$. I really feel Kannada’s SRK is better than this SRK.
He will most probably not win an Oscar because Hindi film-makers can only tell a story the way cow belt can understand and appreciate.
“I really feel Kannada’s SRK is better than this SRK.” LOL, wonderful comment.
Very much true. Shivanna is better than mindless overactor SRK:P
who is this idiot posting this poll ?
SRK does not deserve any award. He is a pathetic actor who always cast is some stupid self-pity role. our tennis krishna can act better than him
SRK will WIN Oscar or not is just hypothetical question, but just that question can bring out so much among the cheddi sena is amusing.
Just imagine for second he does WIN, how miserable they will be!!! But who give a Fuc$k to what kavitha and party’s sufferings. Oh Mr. Thackery is eating his own poop after his no-show in Bombay.
I am not suffering…read my post carefully before you comment…
I said who cares a f*&*k which means it does not matter to me either way..
As an aside, all these awards have lost their meaning…when a trash movie like Crouching Tiger and Hidden Dragon can get a oscar for best foriegn movie every mediocre actor has a fair claim on this award….including shah rukh and his dad
If MNIK wins the Oscar it can only win the foreign film category and the award would then go to K(rappy)Jo for Directing. Shahrukh can’t win it for acting. I think best actor award is not for foreign films
“lunatic fringe” ???
kindly be judicious in the usage of ‘words’
You know what guys, who play the best role in release of MNIK? None other than Shiv sena.
Hence the oscar goes to Shiv Sena Team….. Jai ho. :-)
i hope no offenses taken. :-)
How can an actor in a Foreign Film can win Oscars? Slumdog.. is a Hollywood film and naturally it is qualified to be nominated to Oscars.
Lagaan etc., were nominated under foreign film category.
kj is there to produce a movie but who is there to make a movie about kashmiriandits those people who suffered in 1984? Aamir is a verastile actor who dares to play arole of terrorist in fanna who dares to doit?i agree even srk is a good actor but he is just symathising with mnik i do not suppport him.
In secular India, no body cares about Kashmiri Pandits, not the central government and not the J&K state government….so why would KJ make a movie on Kashmiri pandit. More importantly SRK will not act in this movie since it might hurt the sensibilities of his zaat bhais/behens. Remember how MFH withdraw his movie within one week of screening because some mullah objected to a song which use mahamad’s name in it.
As far as I know neither Central Govt nor State Govt.s are in the business of making movies. It is a commercial activity with a clear goal of making money (even the art-house movies have this goal – however much they may scream that it is art for art’s sake:)) as in the case of any other business.
India makes roughly about 1000 movies/year. So the question to be asked is why no one seems to be interested in making a movie on Kashmiri Pandits?
Isn’t it a good business proposition? Isn’t any one sure of getting back his/her monies with decent amount of profit? No one can find good and riveting stories to tell in this subject? If that’s the case it’s good time to ask why. If the Bombaywallahs and Dilliwallahs can make movies on hundreds of sundry themes it’s surprising there are no takers for Kashmiri Pandits. Ofc some small-medium scale movies have been made on this but none that created a great deal of stir in Indian psyche or a big budget movie for that matter.
I am sure there are several touching stories to be told about their plight. But it’s also clear that most of the producers think it is not a lucrative subject. Otherwise we would have seen movies by the dozen on this theme by this time and many a Chopra, Barjatya, Johar or a Ghai would have laughed away to the bank – here or in Swiss Alps.
SRK and KJo aren’t the only movie folks in India and Bollywood is surely not a one horse town. There are several other big fish out there. For eg. AB (both senior and Junior), Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan – just to name a few.
Why they wouldn’t take up this? Which ‘zaat bhais/behens’ would they be offending by doing so?
You are one of few people I look forward to read comments, … but here trolls often do visit, kavitha being one of the many mukharjees kind…. just to vent their personal frustration, not to converse, learn and understand.
However logically you present something, their tunnel vision don’t allow them beyond their prejudice.
I didn’t say the GOI or J&K govt is in the business of making movies. What I was alluding to was these govts have failed in rehabilitating the kashmiri pandits back in J&K where they rightfully belong and have allowed them to wallow as refugees in their own country. Now, they are busy rehabilitating the terrorists from POK (as per the recent invitation of our Home Minister to these thugs).
AB father and son duo are busy feteing the papistani artists in the name of Amaan Ki Asha…the most brain dead idea that one can come up with, Akshay Kumar is not a big producer and Hrithik is married to Sanjay Khan’s daughter and hence might be very concerned about offending his FIL and wife, if he acted/made a movie on Kashmiri Pandits which obviously has to show why they ended up as refugees in their own country.
Remember, Akbar Khan who is Sanjay Khan’s brother went on record to deride his own brother Feroz Khan for saying India is a better secular democarcy than Papistan ;)
As far as the village idiot Khan is concerned, the less said the better about his hidden agenda on this forum.
‘who is there to make a movie about kashmiriandits those people who suffered in 1984’
Why dont you? You can take kavitha as hero/heroine. He can then practice his acting theory and show how a real superhit movie is made.
Talking of kavitha as Hero/heroine (ek ka do?), how about recruiting bhyrappa for script!! Okay he may prefer rajputs as hero, not your gowda/lingayat, he may still use all the cliche that are there, including ek ka do.
Kavitha may have discounted everyone as someone related to khans, but why worry bellary reddys are there for making kavitha hero/heroine. She/he just need to work on them … a little.
Nice one, Kavitha!
TennisKrishna, you said it right.
Let somebody make a movie on Kashmiri Pandits and there should be a climax scene in the movie where the guild-of-village-idiots led by Khan and friends be escorted out of India into PureLand. Now that is a movie worth seeing…
Mungeri lal ke haseen sapne….. with dadaa and kavitha as mungeri and mankeri.
Even kavitha and DB know that nobody will watch their magnus opus, even if they make it, since it will be only filled with hatred and pessimism.
Kaiyalla aagdhiravaru maiparchkondranthe.
Mungeri lal ke haseen sapne? Dream on.
MNIK – another trash movie.
makes lump in your jaws with a pathetic story and filled with filthy and pun dialogues.
Autistic (Asperger’s syndrome) and brought up by mother , Shahrukh is very peppy in picking up words like Jhak maarna which he asks how todo from his mother!!!
well it ends up that it’s just clapping like gays. Pity that Karan being a unmarried Gujarati is not aware of Hyderabadi versions.
Shahrukh remembers his mother saying “there are only two kinds of people achche and bure”
but while talking to another mother Kajol ,he uses suck and motherfff… stops there for censor -all this while being autistic!!!!
he has mouthful of haramzaadas kameenas and all gaalis flowing through still makes a motor to drive water out of mumbai house -which apparently teaches him and is also a parsi!!! he doesn;t shake hands or hug anyone but is very learned to use the filthy language.
Kajol laughs when her son says don’t disrepute me when she hugs him near school ( now it’s left to viewers to assume worst pun out of Kajol )
He stares at breasts of some elder Miss India who desperately woes him in the name of Autism.
There are two journalist – who tell Indian gaalis are the best and simultaneously say “Teri Maa Ki” in front of American President.
At the same time they are moved by shahrukh when he goes to unknown place to save african mama jenny who just gave him shelter for a day.
He shows Kajol a misty morning for which she decides to marry him.
Some Everest masala that only Karna can put:
He gets stalked by a knife by a muslim, his brother says don’t marry a hindu , a muslim who is shown middle finger removes his clothes and comes on to street to fight, a muslim doc doing a jihad for which shahrukh says shaitaan told for a sacrifice on bakrid, a small christian boy estranging kajol’s son for being muslim , kajol bringing up difference between rathore and khan and that pathos music all along making weak hearted to cry and shed tears at every sentiment and laugh at every double meaning.
He wants Khan to be pronounced from epiglottis and his son almost gets his sputum into his face.
Horrible movie. Just like hype of RajiniKanth’s movie it would be running into empty houses and media may be saying it grossed crores!!!!
Karan might have fallen to sharmila tagore to get a U/A certificate for such a horrible and totally avoidable movie.
With 3 idiots and this both the Khans and Gujaratis are showing how exactly they can go underbelly to make money and to woo muslim and mumbai audience.
See the hype created. SRK is caught in a airport few months back and he narrated a whole nazi mantra on papers, shiv sena is also misused for hype and ibn shows srk is undeterred and has defeated sena – they even use congress to black face muthalik on eve of valentine’s day and film gets released on valentine’s day – all these for a total crap.
Now seeing the gujarati words lurking in tv ads , cinemas of khans and mumbai opposing ambani , and lalit modi holding ipl ; they can do anything for money still having ahmedabad as name of capital negating gandhi’s contribution also becoming gay capital with the only king there into homosexuality.
It’s better this Bollywood moves to ahmedabad and then to disappear to Karachi and start some sach ka samna with porn stories of pakistan and gujarat.
It seems they are releasing a American version of it. I can imagine what Karna will be saying to press – It has got
2. Single moms and how to propose them
3. How sex starved are Indians even in America!. seducing Aunts , seducing customers for selling Mehnaz’s products.
4. America , officers ,president himself and jails and how they can speak for a hindi movie.
5. Floods of Mumbai and America and difference between them and how to conduct rescue.
6. Small boys learning religious divide.
7. how to pronounce ot spit on a Khan.
8. how to respect your mother and disrespect others.
9. how almost anyone can be called an Indian.
10. How a shahrukh always finds a Kaajal and tells there is a physics theory in physics which says some special sounds make your heart beat faster…..
totally a complete entertainer for all. go grab you seat.
Insanity is nothing short there with movies like avatar and 2012 being superhyped ; khan’s horrible movies can also make their way – just that indian identity will be malformed to world by these khans .
One more example of a rotten movie.
I dont know if this buffoon gets an oscar for reel acting… but going by the way he buckled under the pressure of some mullahs in Kolkata, he surely deserves some prizes for real life acting.
When Shiva Sena opposed him for his utterances on Pakis being good neighbours, all the sickularists went ballistic on Sena. Rajdeep was shrill when he was shouting at the top of his voice while interviewing Uddhav Thackrey. Burkha n her gang were no less subdued.
And we have amidst us a bunch of retards for whom anything about Shiva sene, Narendra Modi etc becomes a rallying point. So they bought tickets and made this worthless shit a great opener.
Now see the scenario.
SRK is made to withdraw his sponsorship deal with LUX. Why? Because the owners of this brand are supposedly behind the “alleged murder of a muslim”. Mind you, it is not any youth, it is a “muslim” youth. So the local mullahs declared fatwa on SRK. The usual bunch of retards wrote letters to SRK. The muslim youth’s brother came on TV and spoke about SRK being a youth icon etc and how it was not right to be a part of the Lux brand. And SRK buckled.
Just a day after the release of the movie, to facilitate which the Maharashtra Government deployed unprecedented number of policemen in cinema halls, we had a blast in Pune. Till now 15 people are killed and scores of others are injured. Paki groups have accepted it as their handiwork. But for this bastard Khan it is an insignificant matter. No apologies, no regrets.
But one Muslim youth committed suicide, this was branded as murder, father of the girl implicated, courts yet to give their verdict. Look at the reaction of this buffoon.
But this too shall pass. In the name of secularism!!!
In legal system we go by the dictum “innocent till proven guilty”. In the case of Lux owner this has been turned on its head. This poor fellow has been declared “Guilty till proven innocent”.
>>Let somebody make a movie on Kashmiri Pandits and there should be a climax scene in the movie where the guild-of-village-idiots led by Khan and friends be escorted out of India into PureLand. Now that is a movie worth seeing…>>
This movie will be called “My Name is Khan…I AM the Village Idiot…I have to make this journey to Papistan,Bangidesh or Sandland so that you will come back to me” LOL
to come out of all this crap i’ve switched to hollywood long time ago and i have spent some time(2.5 years) you dont know how much craze this sha rukh guy has got in NYers , i know you wont belive me but its true that u can still see the posters of this guys pepsi add in NY..
