Why does Shahrukh Khan want to learn Bengali?

The actor recently confessed that he will learn how to be a true Bengali from Jaya Bachchan

Shahrukh Khan was overwhelmed at being invited to inaugurate the 19th Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF). The Chennai Express actor said he would learn Bengali from actor-politician Jaya Bachchan to be a ‘true Bengali’. The actor added, “Thank you Kolkata for adopting me and giving me the opportunity to be here. I have been coming here for the last three years and I promise you next time I am here I will speak in Bengali so Jaya aunty feels I am truly, truly from Kolkata then,” said the actor at the opening ceremony. “I will come to you and learn from you. So next time when you stand on stage I will be a true Bengali and welcome everyone.”

Well, we wonder if SRK said it because he is also the brand ambassador of West Bengal or also because Shahrukh is reportedly approached by Mira Nair for her next directorial titled The Bengali Detective. The film will be based in Kolkata. The film is based on a documentary written by Phil Cox that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Let’s see if SRK who played a detective in Baadshah, agrees to play a private eye again!
