West Bengal’s brand ambassador Shah Rukh Khan will be learning Bengali from the famous actress Jaya Bachchan.
"I have been coming here for the last three years and I promise you next time when I am here I will speak in Bengali so Jaya aunty feels I am truly, truly from Kolkata then," Khan said while inaugurating the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF).

This reaction from Badshah came after Jaya Bachchan addressed Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh and Kamal Hasaan as non-real Bengalis in front of real Bengalis like her and and co-actor Mithun Chakraborty.

Talking to Jaya, Khan said, "I will come to you and learn from you. So next time when you stand on stage I will be a true Bengali and welcome everyone".
