Shah Rukh Khan has won over the Internet yet again, and this time it was for hitching a ride with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to the Kolkata airport in her rather small Santro. Sitting in the backseat (since Banerjee is known to always sit with the driver in the front) and later touching the CM’s feet after he got down from the car has earned King Khan some major brownie points with his fans. This seemed apt since King Khan is not only the state’s brand ambassador but also the car brand Hyundai’s since 1998.

SRK was in town for the Kolkata International Film Festival, when Banerjee insisted she drop the actor off at the airport for his flight out of the city. In the video shared on Twitter and other social media platforms, one can hear someone asking the actor, “Shah Rukhji, last kab chadha tha itna chhota gadi mein? (When was the last time you rode in such a small car?).” Though the actor doesn’t respond, the gesture has Twitterati going ‘awww’.

Watch the video here.

After the video went viral, people on social media can’t stop praising the star.

    Mamatadi has always been one among the crowd. Such a simple and humble CM. A roll model for all arrogant politicians.

      Such utter bull , and I dont understand why people praising this !!! The respected CM should be working on things that benefit the state in the long run... job creation education, healthcare. But she’s more obsessed with filmstars gliteratti... just for the glamor cheap publicity
