Big B to inaugurate 18th Kolkata Film Festival
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan will inaugurate the 18th Kolkata Film Festival, scheduled to be held in November, Trinamool Congress MP Kunal Ghosh said.
"Amitabh Bachchan responds to Mamata Banerjee, coming to Kolkata, will inaugrate Kolkata International Film Festival on November 10," Ghosh tweeted.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had personally requested Amitabh, whose wife Jaya is a Bengali, to grace the occasion by presiding over the opening ceremony of film festival as the chief guest.
Last year, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and yesteryear's actress Sharmila Tagore had inaugurated the 17th Kolkata Film Festival (KFF).
After the demise of superstar Rajesh Khanna, Banerjee had recollected her association with him, as well as well as with Amitabh, during their stints in parliament.
