Shah Rukh Khan was in Kolkata to inaugurate the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF) 2017. A widely shared Twitter video depicts that West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee drops Shah Rukh Khan at the Kolkata airport. She opens the door for the actor to get down as soon as the car reaches Airport.. SRK later touched the CM's feet and makes his way inside the airport. Shah Rukh Khan is the brand ambassador of West Bengal . Last week, SRK had shared a picture of himself with Mamata Banerjee and wrote, "Too much fun and love at KIFF 2017. Love my Kolkata & as always the warmth of #mamatabanerjee ...U r the sweetest."
This might have a background as the WB Tourism has new brand identity as the "Sweetest Part of India" but as some comments posted by the twitterati are genuinely show the unique gesture ""No CM in India has been or will be as humble as Mamata Di. Opens door before car stops. The great movie star realises this is a unique gesture of love and appreciation and not show of power. This is just wow!" wrote a user while another tweeted, "SRK knows what & whom to value."
