Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was
touched by the way Kolkata fans expressed their love for
Saurav Ganguly by playing Ekla Cholo Re during the match
between Kolkata Knight Riders and Pune Warriors.
The 69-year-old actor had lent his trademark baritone for
famed Rabindrasangeet Ekla Cholo Re for the film Kahaani.
Ganguly played against Kolkata Knight Riders, his former
team, for the first time at Eden Garden. Incidentally, it was
also the first time in his cricketing career that Ganguly used
the visitor's dressing room at Eden Garden.
"In the IPL at Eden garden in Kolkata... divisive
emotions .. Ganguly playing in his city for another team PWI.
They tell me when Saurav got out and walked back, they played
Ekla Cholo re from Kahaani, and the entire stadium joined in
"To those that send appreciation on the playing of ekla
cholo re at Eden Garden ... my heart felt gratitude ..But
must give it to the Kolkatans .. even though they were
divided, they gave equal appreciation ... Only in Kolkata !!,"
he posted on Twitter.
