'My Name is Khan' breaks UAE box office record...

The epic film 'My Name is Khan' has smashed the record for the biggest opening of a Bollywood film in the UAE.

The National reported that 135,858 tickets had been sold in the four days since the movie began its commercial run in the country last Thursday.

Starring one of Bollywood's biggest stars, Shah Rukh Khan, the film centres on depictions of Islamophobia after 9/11. Directed by Karan Johar, the movie also stars Kajol.

The film had its worldwide premiere at the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi last Wednesday.

‘My Name is Khan' has also been performing well in the US, where it raked in nearly $2.3m from 120 cinemas in four days, according to Reuters.

The New York Times called the film "an affecting fairy tale about the perils of goodness".
