New Delhi: Shah Rukh Khan shares a lovely bond with the city of joy, Kolkata. The bond has been made stronger on the day of Raksha Bandhan when West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tied a Rakhi on the wrist of the Badhshah of Bollywood.

He tweeted:

Shah Rukh has been close to Mamata Banerjee since the last few years ago. They celebrated the victory of KKR flamboyantly in Kolkata, and he has a lot of fans in the city too.

Rakhi is celebrated across India as a festival of love of the siblings. A Rakhi is tied on the brother`s wrist symbolising the sister`s love and prayers for her brother`s well-being. The brother promises to protect his sister from harm.
