Dr. Kafeel Khan wrote a thank you letter to film star Shahrukh Khan

Dr. Kafeel Khan wrote a letter to film star Shahrukh Khan thanking him and his entire team for showcasing a story similar to his life in the film Jawan, he said in the letter that Dear Mr. SRK sir,

I trust this letter finds you in good health and high spirits. I recently had the privilege of watching your latest film, “Jawan,” and I felt compelled to convey my deep appreciation for your extraordinary commitment to using cinema as a means to address critical socio-political issues.

The movie’s poignant portrayal of the tragic Gorakhpur Encephalitis incident has left an indelible mark on my heart. As someone who has had a personal connection with the incident and its aftermath, I was profoundly moved by your decision to bring this story to the screen.

While I understand that “Jawan” is a work of fiction, the parallels it draws to the Gorakhpur tragedy serve as a powerful reminder of the systemic failures, apathy, and, most importantly, the innocent lives lost. It underscores the urgent need for accountability within our healthcare system .

The character portrayed by Sanya Malhotra (as Dr Eeram Khan ) although not directly referencing me, encapsulated the experiences I faced. It was heartening to witness the real culprit of “The Gorakhpur Hospital Tragedy”0 got caught, though sadly in real life the real culprits are roaming free , me still struggling to get my job back , and those 63 parents who lost their little ones still waiting for justice.

On a personal note, I would like to share that I have authored a book titled “The Gorakhpur Hospital Tragedy,” originally published by Pan Macmillan and available in more than six languages which provides a comprehensive first hand account of the tragedy and its aftermath. I believe that a part of the movie’s plot resonates with the events detailed in my book.

If given the opportunity, I would be immensely honored to meet you and the talented director Atlee, as well as other members of the film’s crew, to express my gratitude personally.

I also want to assure you that my sanctification, devotion, and determination towards serving my countrymen would continue undeterred.

Thank you once again for being a beacon of hope. I look forward to your kind reply.

Warmest regards,

Dr Kafeel Khan
