Ajay Devgn goofs up at IFFI inaugural

He addressed Railways Minister Mamta Banerjee as the Information and Broadcasting Minister at the gala.

Bollywood star Ajay Devgn,the guest of honour at the inaugural of International Film Festival of India (2010),had clearly not brushed up on his “Who’s Who” and addressed Railways Minister Mamta Banerjee as the Information and Broadcasting Minister at the gala.

The goof-up provided comic relief to the event when the actor took to the dias briefly to address the gathering.

Devgn took the help of a note but was clearly not updated and got some loud chuckles from the crowd.

The actor seemed unaware of his mistake and hurried back to his seat after the brief speech.
