About shooting My Name is Khan:
“I met many people. I had a chance to meet and interact with people from South Africa, Afghanistan, Dubai, Germany and India. I learned alot about their cultures, and they learned alot about mine. The South African children on the set even taught me how to speak Zulu, and one of the production assistants taught me how to sing “We Shall overcome” in Hindi. It was an AWESOME trip.”
