Photos: Shahrukh gorges on fish fry with Mamata after win
After a grand win at Eden Garden, KKR owner and superstar Shahrukh Khan received a grand welcome at West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s residence. After the teams’ historic victory on home ground over the Kings XI Punjab, Shahrukh Khan drove to Mamata Didi’s house in the dingy Harish Chatterjee street to enjoy the moment.
Large number of fans gathered outside the CM’s house to get a glimpse of the superstar. Mamata came out of her house to receive the star and in turn SRK touched Mamata’s feet to show his respect. He spends nearly 25 minutes at her house and gorges on fish fry.
King Khan tweeted after the meeting, "My KKR how beautiful were they tonite. Fish fry with MamataDi…ride along the Kolkata roads with all celebrating."
Mamata Banerjee also watched the
match for some time at the Eden Garden.
KKR stormed into the final of the IPL by defeating Kings XI Punjab with 28 runs.
Khan later told reporters: "I am grateful to Kolkata for its support and we will party after we win the IPL this year. The team has been playing fantastically."
"Bengal's Brand Ambassador, Shah Rukh Khan was in Kolkata today in connection with his team, KKR's match. We are indeed very proud of him. "KKR got a splendid victory. Congratulations to team KKR. Wish them all the best for the final," Banerjee said on her official Facebook page. "After the match, Shah Rukh came to my residence. It was really a very nice moment. My best wishes to Shah Rukh and his family members," she said.
