Literary works cannot be separated from social phenomena that occur in society. Because literary works are nothing but direct experience from the author or what he gets from the community in his environment. Sociology of literature functions in finding relationships between social conditions in the surrounding environment that affect the behavior of characters in a literary work. This study aims to analyze the sociology of literature in the film My Name is Khan. The method used in this study is a qualitative descriptive of the My Name is Khan film script. Based on the results of the study, it was found that the social aspects that can be found in the film My Name is Khan are divided into four groups, namely social aspects in terms of religious tolerance, motherhood, moral and religious values and understanding of people with Asperger's syndrome.
