Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol today became the first Indian movie stars to ring the opening bell of the New York stock exchange NASDAQ.
The duo are in New York to promote their latest film My Name is Khan and were invited to by Fox Searchlight Pictures, who are distributing the film in the US, to open trading at the world’s biggest stock exchange at 9:00 am (local time) today.
Before the event, Shah Rukh said on his tweeter account: “Nasdaq will be fun. Have to make sure I reach on time, otherwise will end up being blamed for economic upheaval across the world too..Ha ha.”
Shah Rukh and Kajol will also be talking to New Yorkers, later today, through an online chat show hosted by the South Asian Journalists Association.
Their latest movie centres around a Muslim man, who faces difficulties in social interaction, and falls unconditionally for the beautiful Mandira, a Hindu single mother living out her version of the global dream of success.
The movie, also starring Jimmy Shergill and Tanay Chheda, will be released on February 12 worldwide and will also premiere at the 60th annual Berlin International Film Festival during the week of its release.
