The name of the iconic writer ‘Paulo Coelho’ needs no introduction. His books like The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries and many others are a rage world over inspiring millions.
So, what happens when a writer of his magnitude gets ‘gifted’ by Bollywood’s iconic superstar Shah Rukh Khan, a bunch of DVDs of his films? The answer is simple. Like many fans world over, even Paulo Coelho was spoilt for choices.
Paulo Coelho then took to twitter and expressed his ‘helplessness’ in deciding which movie to start off with at first. He tweeted stating “What a Monday morning gift, @iamsrk !!! Now I need to know where to start”. In the meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted, “Just sent sum movies to @paulocoelho. Please tweet him ur suggestions which one to watch first.”
After that, Paulo Coelho, who thought that Shah Rukh Khan deserved an Oscar for his performance in My Name Is Khan posted the following on his Facebook page “His first (and only) movie that I watched (this year, even if it was released in 2008) was “My Name is Khan”. And not only the movie was excellent, but SRK deserved an Oscar if Hollywood was not manipulated.
He kindly offered to send the other titles – as you probably guess, it is not easy to find them in Switzerland.”
