Thrilled at inaugurating the KIFF, King Khan was overjoyed when he visited the City of Joy

Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan, who was in the City of Joy- Kolkata to inaugurate the 19th Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF), said it was a pleasure to be in the company of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. “Kolkata has been fun and fantastic. Always a pleasure to get caught amidst the vortex of energy called Mamatadi,” Shahrukh, who is also the brand ambassador of West Bengal, posted on his Twitter page.

At the inauguration, SRK said that he wanted to learn how to speak in Bengali from Jaya Bachchan so that when he comes next, he will behave like a “true Bengali”.

KIFF was launched on Sunday with Indian cinema greats Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Mithun Chakraborty, Kamal Haasan and Shah Rukh in attendance.
