    Mumbai: On Wednesday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited Mumbai home of Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan.

    Banerjee arrived in Mumbai on August 31st to attend the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) meeting on September 1st, and immediately afterward she travelled to Bachchan's mansion 'Jalsa' in suburban Juhu.

    At last year's Kolkata International Film Festival's opening ceremony, where Bachchan was present, Banerjee pushed for him to be awarded India's highest civilian distinction, the Bharat Ratna, for his work in the film industry.—Inputs from Agencies
