Journalist Madhureeta Mukherjee (referring to the post - 2008 Mumbai attacks atmosphere in India) stated in a December 2008 interview with Johar that, "My Name Is Khan starts at a time when Hindus and Muslims in India have united like never before.
" In response, Johar stated: "I think it’s an exceptionally relevant time, as the unity of our nation is of paramount importance, and I am very happy to witness such a movement in front of my eyes.
We are all coming together to fight for a common cause – called humanity. Everyone knows that terrorism has no religion and it will never have a religion. As a filmmaker, I believe that I have a social responsibility and I promise to fulfill that." In commenting on the film, Shah Rukh Khan also added, "It’s not about a disabled man’s fight against disability.
It’s a disabled man’s fight against the disability that exists in the world — terrorism, hatred, fighting [...] My Name is Khan is also about Islam and the way the world looks at Islam but we are not taking any sides. We are only trying to say that there are only good people and bad people. There are no good Hindus, bad Hindus, good Christians, bad Christians. Either you are a good person or a bad person. Religion is not the criterion, humanity is."
