Shah Rukh heaped praises on Mamata, saying he was quite impressed by the enthusiasm and zeal of the chief minister. "I see her runnning around and pushing things," he added.

The chief minister, while thanking everybody, meanwhile, requested filmmakers from not only Bollywood but from Hollywood too to come and make films here. "Darjeeling is smiling and so is Junglemahal. I exhort everybody to come and invest here," she said.
