Bollywood must be dreading the Calcutta International Film Festival—a stentorian call from the CM...the unenlightening prospect of a day full of drumbeats. However, there is no respite for Shahrukh (Amitabh fell ill at an opportune period). Though flanked by filmmaker Goutam Ghosh, Mamata herself and Sourav, the stage-show was stopped by the bonhomie between Rakhee and SRK: singing along a pat­riotic Rabi­ndrasangeet and reminiscing about the sets of Baazigar.

Ganguly's career took an unexpected turn due to the infamous feud with Greg Chappell, who was appointed India’s coach in 2005. Ganguly's poor displays with the bat didn’t help his cause and he was eventually dropped from the team in October 2005 and was also sacked from captaincy. The entire episode had snowballed into a big controversy.

PTI

Ganguly played for the now-defunct Pune Warriors India in 2011 and was named the captain of the franchise in 2012.

At the stroke of the midnight hour, it seemed the president had been finalised—BCCI grandees exuded an air of certainty. Then, an unexplai­ned hubbub: meetings, huddles, quiet words, frantic phonecalls. At the end of it all, consensus plumped for Sourav Gan­guly. We can’t expl­ain the hype over a 10-month tenure, except that stakes in Indian cricket run deep.

It was one of the biggest ego clashes of Indian cricket, and the biggest in the modern era. Greg Chappell, then India coach, wanted captain Ganguly to opt out of the playing XI on the tour of Zimbabwe, citing his poor form. Ganguly, who had once especially flown down to Australia to take tips from Chappell, refused, but was later dropped, to be replaced by Rahul Dravid as captain.
