Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan praise Mamata Banerjee

Shah Rukh Khan, Kamal Haasan praise Mamata Banerjee 

 Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan were left stumped with the hands-on approach of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

After seeing Banerjee running around the stage to check all arrangements while inaugurating the 19th edition of the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF), an amused Haasan said, "She is a dynamo of energy and very surprisingly not interested in sitting in the chair for too long. I am quite surprised, I am not used to it."

"This is my first encounter with your honourable Chief Minister. So I was looking forward to a Chief Minister but I found a sister. I know why you call her that ('didi') now," said the actor, who has also acted in a number of Hindi films.

He added that Banerjee's approach is like the head of a family who is busy inviting everyone.

Khan, who addresses the CM as Didi, said, "It is extremely wonderful to see her running around, jumping around, making this a wonderful Kolkata International Film Festival coming alive with her energy."

Also the brand ambassador of West Bengal, Khan, described her as someone who is charming, energetic and hyperactive.

To the delegates and film lovers attending the eight-day carnival, Khan said, "You are perhaps in the most greatest, the most charming and loving city in the world just like the Chief Minister herself."

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his actor-wife Jaya were also present at the high-decibel inauguration of KIFF at the Netaji Indoor Stadium here.
