Kolkata: During election season when many political opponents do not see each other in the eye, Bengali filmstar and Trinamool Congress candidate Dev has fixed up a meeting with his rival CPI candidate Santosh Rana tomorrow.
Dev said he called up Rana last night and told him if they could meet at the latter`s place for a cup of tea.

"Dev called me saying he would come to my place for a cup of tea. I asked him to come. My fight with him is political and not personal, so I welcome him if he wants to visit my home for tea," Rana said.

The two are contesting against each other from Ghatal constituency, Dev`s hometown in the West Midnapore district.

The 31-year-old Dev, best known for his potboilers like `Paglu`, `Challenge` and `Chander Pahar`, said he was amazed to know that his political opponent has watched his films.
