Mamata Banerjee and Amitabh Bachchan

Last Year We Saw Shahrukh came in the Kolkata Film Festival and now this time, The Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamta Banerjee want Big B for Kolkata Film Festival and you know what Big almost said Yes to Her.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee may be causing political upheavals in the country but at the same time she is keen to grab eyeballs by welcoming Bollywood’s A-List to Kolkata. It took Didi (as she is called) only a phone call to have the Big B as the star guest in attendance for the Kolkata film festival in mid-November. In a bid to up the glam quotient of the state, the CM herself took upon the onus of having the biggest star inaugurate the festival.


Says a source, “Mamata didi wanted only Amitabh Bachchan to open the festival. Both of them go a long way back when both of them were MPs and have shared a rapport ever since.” Confirms Bachchan, “Mamata phoned me and invited me for the Kolkata film festival. I will be going on November 11.”

We Wish this year there will be more fun on this Festival.
