Big B and SRK to inaugurate Kolkata Film Festival

Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan will jointly inaugurate the 18th edition of the Kolkata International Film Festival on November 10, which will pay tribute to the completion of 100 years of Indian cinema.

The eight-day festival will bring together the two superstars on the dais along with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at a gala event at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

SRK is also the brand ambassador of the state.

Altogether 189 films from 60 countries will be screened at twelve venues including state-run Nandan, Sisir Mancha, Rabindra Sadan and at cinema halls like Star, Paradise, Navina and Mitra, festival organisers said today.
A small tent-like structure would be erected at Nandan to create the ambience of the bioscope of yesteryears.

Rare films like 'Raja Harischandra', regarded as India's first full-length feature film (1913) and 'Kaliya Mardan' (1919) made by Dadasaheb Phalke, the 'Father of Indian Cinema', will be screened.

Among other rare films to be screened would be Jyotiprasad Agarwala's 1933 film 'Joymati', Debaki Kumar Bose's 'Chandidas', Madhu Bose's 'Alibaba' and P C Barua's 'Mukti'. MORE
