West Bengal government to gift SRK a Rs 2.5 crore flat

New Delhi: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will be shooting a series of promotional campaigns for Bengal tourism without charging any fee. According to the reports, the West Bengal government has decided to gift the actor a luxurious apartment worth Rs. 2.5 crore at Rajarhat in Kolkata, as a token of appreciation.

Reportedly, the apartment which is likely to be gifted to SRK measures a little over 4,000 sq ft and is being constructed at Westin.

On September 30, 2015, West Bengal tourism minister Bratya Basu had confirmed that SRK had refused to take money but they know that he is a professional actor and have made provisions for the fees to be paid to him.

During a press conference for his latest release, 'Dilwale', when questioned about the gift, the 50-year-old actor said, "I have not been told about this (the flat) and even if you ask me, if somebody is to give this to me out of love, I will not accept it. Not because I don't love you, but it is my duty to do everything I can not only for Bengal but the rest of the country as well."

Thanking state chief minister Mamata Banerjee for choosing him as the brand ambassador, a leading newspaper quoted SRK as saying, "It is a great honour that I am a brand ambassador of Bengal. I had not imagined this in my wildest dreams. For me, it is the biggest honour and is extremely humbling. Whatever little I can do in my smallest way, I just want to do that. I don't want anything in return, I have been given so much already."

SRK further added, "Mujhe sirf aapka pyar chahiye (I only want your love). When I come here I get fried fish from didi. That is the greatest gift. When there is a cricket match, 70,000 people come to watch the game and Masha Allah when we win, they come in lakhs to congratulate me. I don't need anything more than this."
