Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol ring the NASDAQ gong
On February 1 at 8.30 a.m. (New York time), Bollywood had yet another defining moment in global history when Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, the lead pair from Karan Johar’s “My Name Is Khan”, rang the gong at the New York stock exchange NASDAQ (National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations).
The only Indian who has received this honour prior to SRK is Infosys CEO, Narayan Murthy.
Happy that “My Name Is Khan” was given this platform, the first for any Bollywood film, SRK joked, “I don’t want to sound cheesy, but I get the feeling that the stocks of “My Name Is Khan” that open on February 12, will keep rising in the weeks to come.’’
Humbled by the honour given to his latest film, Karan Johar said, “This is truly a moment of integration between the West and us. SRK is a global icon and he has a reach that is far beyond the space awarded to most others.”
