Shah Rukh Khan prays for 'better times' in WB
Kolkata, Oct 29 (IBNS): Shah Rukh Khan, who visited Kolkata on Wednesday to promote his latest released film 'Happy New Year' in the city, prayed for 'better times' in West Bengal.

Khan made the remarks at a time when the  probe is going on into the Burdwan blast.

Speaking to media, Khan, who is the brand ambassador of West Bengal,  said: "At the moment the place we are in, it is difficult to get into this. I know situations go wrong, situations sometimes are uncontrollable and there are going to be issues all the time, but it's not the time to get into that discussion...Being the brand ambassador of Bengal, I can pray for better times and for good times. Things will all settle down soon."

Earlier in the day, Khan met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Banerjee on Monday assured the Central investigators of all help regarding the ongoing Khagragarh blast probe, which unearthed a huge terrorist module in the state.

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval accompanied by National Security Guard (NSG) chief Jayanta Narayan Choudhury and National Investigation Agency (NIA) director general Sharad Kumar, met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at “Nabanna”, the State Secretariat in Kolkata.

The blast in West Bengal's Burdwan district took place on Oct 2 in which two Jamat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) militants were killed while another one was injured.
