The worldwide success of the film 'Pathaan' displays the stardom of Shah Rukh Khan in the whole world. The film has crossed more than 650 crore in just eight days and Shah Rukh's fans are celebrating his success. On Thursday, Brazilian lyricist and novelist Paulo Coelho retweeted a video of Shah Rukh and called him a legend. He also recommended to his friends from western countries that if they don't know who he is, they must watch “My name is Khan- and I am not a terrorist."

“King. Legend . Friend. But above all GREAT ACTOR ( for those who don’t know him in the West, I strongly suggest “My name is Khan- and I am not a terrorist")," Paulo Coelho tweeted.

Coelho shared the video of Shah Rukh Khan where hundreds of fans were around his house cheering for the actor and Khan was also showing them respect by folding his hands. The video was posted on 30 January, five days after the release of his new film 'Pathaan.'

Shah Rukh Khan replied to Coelho's tweet:

The film has done a business of 667 crore gross worldwide in eight days, the production house Yash Raj Films (YRF) said on Thursday.
