My Name Is Khan is about the lonesome journey of an intelligent Muslim man, (diagnosed with the Asperger’s syndrome) to meet the President of the United States of America, in order to deliver a message; â€˜My Name Is Khan and I am not a terroristâ€™.
The basic storyline is extrapolated in such a manner that Karan Johar has skillfully and remarkably packed so much to accommodate an array of themes, which are interwoven between the plots that youâ€™ll find it hard to decipher which one you are currently watching as the movie is so intelligently and maturely made.
Rizvan Khanâ€™s (Shah Rukh Khan) upbringing as a child (Tanay Chheda) to an adult follows a series of events where his mother (Zarina Wahab) does whatever in her capacity to give him the best education possible either formally or informally to grow up into a good person one day. His brother (Jimmy Shergill) who goes for higher studies in the US and ultimately after becoming successful, decides to sponsor him. Rizvanâ€™s stint in his new country is initially marked by funny and also sad moments before he meets Mandira (Kajol); a Hindu single mother who works in a hair dressing saloon.
After seeing Mandira and learning about her troubled personal life in the past, Rizvan decides to marry her and subsequently Kajol falls in love with Rizvan in the cutest imaginable way. However, the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks changes the equation in the couple and Rizvan embarks on a mission to prove a point! How Rizvan accomplishes his mission and how far he goes to retain a promise, due to his strict upbringing is the story of My Name Is Khan (MNIK).
