Fox to distribute 'My Name is Khan' worldwide

ShahRukh Khan and Kajol in 'My name is Khan'

Fox Star would market and distribute the film in India while Fox Searchlight Pictures, which marketed and distributed the Oscar winning 'Slumdog Millionaire' in the US, will release the film in the United States.
20th Century Fox International will distribute the film outside India and US.

Johar who is directing and co-producing the movie, said, "For us, this tie-up was important to find a partner who is like-minded, has a similar vision and the capability to take Indian cinema to the international market."

"This movie is about human emotions that are relevant to people across the world and I am happy that the audience which is unfamiliar with these films will get a chance to see what Indian cinema has to offer to the world," added Johar.
The film, which has been jointly produced by Khan and Johar, examines the life of a Muslim man from India, living in San Francisco who embarks on a journey across the United States creating an accidental human revolution.
Shahrukh Khan and Kajol will be seen together in 'My Name is Khan' after a gap of eight years.
The CEO of Fox Star studios Vijay Singh said, "Johar and Shahrukh have been the most successful combination in Bollywood and we are delighted to be working together on this film."
