Ritabhari Chakraborty is on cloud nine after having represented Bengal at the inaugural ceremony of IFFI this year. “I truly believe Bengal deserves to be at the centre of limelight. I performed on a national stage to a set that featured all Bengali songs – I think that is a powerful statement in itself.
I am extremely grateful to have shared the stage with bigwigs of the industry such as Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Shraddha Kapoor, Genelia D’Souza, Riteish Deshmukh, Mouni Roy and others,” said the elated actress. Out of all the experiences, one that Ritabhari says will stay with her forever is the brush with Salman. “The red carpet will always remain very special because I got to meet Salman Khan during the photoshoot. Such a gentleman he is! I vacated the photoshoot floor for him and he thanked me for it after he wrapped up. I also wanted to take a photo with him and he patiently waited till my manager clicked one on her phone. I was awestruck by his humility – he is so grounded despite being a superstar.
His performance was electrifying too,” said Ritabhari.
