"Send me your address sir"
Author Paulo Coelho recently praised Shah Rukh Khan for the success of his latest film Pathaan in his recent tweet.
On February 2, 2023, the author shared a video that was posted by SRK, showcasing the sea of love outside his Mumbai residence Mannat.
The Brazilian novelist wrote: “King. Legend. Friend. But above all great actor. (for those who don’t know him in the West, I strongly suggest “My name is Khan – and I am not a terrorist”).”
SRK replied to the author’s tweet on February 3 and said: “You are always too kind my friend. Let us meet up sooner than soon! Bless you.”
This is not the first time the two are having an exchange.
In 2020, ‘The Alchemist’ author called the film Kaamyaab, which was produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment, “the tragedy of art.”
To this, Shah Rukh Khan responded and wrote: “Saw the film when it was doing festival rounds and it touched a chord with the whole team at Red Chillies Entertainment.
“Am so moved you appreciate. It’s a sad truth that character actors get forgotten. Look after yourself my friend and be safe and healthy.”
Also, Paulo Coelho, a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan’s performance in My Name Is Khan tweeted this a few years back:
“My Name Is Khan (2009) is the best movie I watched this year.”
You are always too kind my friend. Let us meet up sooner than soon!! Bless you https://t.co/7jLTJ4I8ec

He also shared a screenshot of his Facebook post which read:
“His first (and only) movie that I watched (this year, even if it was released in 2008) was My Name is Khan.
“And not only was the movie excellent, but SRK deserved an Oscar if Hollywood was not manipulated.
“He kindly offered to send the other titles – as you probably guess, it is not easy to find them in Switzerland.”
In another tweet, he added: “Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan, Congrats on “My name is Khan“.
“I wish we could see more of your movies in Europe. I had to wait for 6 yrs to watch this.”
Responding to the author’s tweet, SRK wrote: “Send me your address sir I will supply you all Indian films as they release.
“We read u as soon as u write…v r blessed. Thanx.”
In My Name Is Khan, SRK played an autistic man Rizwan who tries to meet the US President after the murder of his stepson.
He faces discrimination in the US as a Muslim and tries to prove to those around him that he is not a terrorist.
