When pressed, the Kaalicharan actor said, “How can I join, when I’m in some other party. But everybody knows my friendship with and affection for Mamata Banerjee.” The “Khamosh…” actor even spoke about the “conflict of emotional interest”. He said, “Definitely it is not a very easy solution.”

“I’ve been a great supporter and admirer of Mamata Banerjee. How to go about it and everything, I need a week’s time,” he said. Does his “week’s time” mean that he has something up his sleeve which he is not yet ready to disclose?

Well, time will tell.
