Wednesday At The Movies: My Name Is Khan

Nyack, September 22 — Bollywood comes to South Broadway when Rivertown Film presents My Name is Khan tonight at 8p at the Nyack Center.

This story about the post-9/11 life of Muslim-Americans is seen through the eyes of Rizwan Khan, a sweet, gentle genius with Asperger’s syndrome. Rizwan romances and marries Mandira, a Hindu, in San Francisco. But an attack on Mandira’s 6-year-old son after 9/11 leads Rizwan on a cross-country quest to meet the U.S. President and tell him ‘€œMy name is Khan and I am not a terrorist.’€

Shah Rukh Khan, the star of this film, is an international heartthrob who draws big crowds at his public appearances. When My Name Is Khan was first shown at the Berlin Film Festival the tickets — on sale for 1000 euros each — were sold out in five seconds.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.brownpapertickets.com.
