Unwell Amitabh Bachchan cancels KIFF visit. His mind is with us, says Mamata Banerjee

West Bengal Chief Minister spoke about Amitabh Bachchan’s absence at 2019.

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is indisposed since Thursday night and in a lot of discomfort, which led him to cancel his scheduled presence here to inaugurate the 25th Kolkata International Film Festival, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Friday.

“Amitabhji comes here every time. But he could not turn up. Since last night he is . So doctors have restricted his movements. He is suffering a lot since last night,” Banerjee said at the inauguration programme.

Banerjee said she got a message from Bachchan early on Friday morning informing her about his indisposition.

“He contacted me, Jaya ji () also. .. We pray for his long life and good health,” the minister said.

“Today though he could not come, I believe Amitji’s mind is with this festival. We cannot think of this film festival without him,” Banerjee added.
