Kolkata: A video is trolling the social sites from last one day, though it’s a cutest video, Kolkata a day to remember. Khan who enjoys all the luxuries of the world was seated in the backseat of CM’s Hyundai Santro as paparazzi captured the moment on film.
Shah Rukh Khan, the brand ambassador of Bengal and owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, was in Kolkata to inaugurate the Kolkata International Film Festival. His host and the Chief Minister of Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, who shares a special bond with Khan, came personally to drop him at the airport, reported. The video has gone viral on social media, understandably, because seeing the owner of numerous luxury cars getting out of the humble Santro is a vision to remember.
Shah Rukh is seen getting down from the backseat of the Santro, sans any security in the car, a sight that one does not quite see as far as the superstar is concerned. On the front seat was West Bengal Chief Minister and SRK’s muhboli didi, Mamata Banerjee. The actor is seen touching Mamata’s feet before he is whisked off by the security at the airport.
The reason behind Didi’s gesture was apparently because Shah Rukh was getting late for his flight. That’s when Mamata jumped in and saved Khan’s day. Several people on Twitter could not contain their surprise and wondered what Shah Rukh might have felt sitting in such a ‘small car’ after howmanyever years.
Just last week, Shah Rukh shared a photo with Mamata Banerjee after spending time at the Kolkata International Film Festival 2017. Shah Rukh and Mamata share a close bond and Khan is the brand ambassador of West Bengal tourism too.
Shah Rukh, notably, is the brand ambassador of Hyundai and has been with the automobile company for the last 19 years. Since its Santro days, Hyundai has seen a perfect ambassador in Khan and the company just renewed their contract with the superstar for another two years.
