Bollywood superstar and principal owner of Kolkata Knight Riders IPL franchise, Shah Rukh Khan visited the residence of West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee in South Kolkata on Wednesday.
After his team's victory over the Kings XI Punjab,
, the brand ambassador of Bengal, drove straight to the residence of Banerjee in the dingy Harish Chatterjee street where a large number of his fans gathered to catch a glimpse of the star.
Banerjee came out from his residence to welcome Khan, who in turn touched her feet in a show of respect for the leader.
Khan was at Banerjee's residence for about 25 minutes.
He tweeted after the meeting, "My KKR how beautiful were they tonite. Fish fry with MamataDi…ride along the Kolkata roads with all celebrating."
