I have no connection with any biopic, says Mamata Banerjee

The Bengali film, titled Baghini - Bengal Tigress has been said to depict the story of an ordinary girl's rise to the position of a Chief Minister after overcoming the struggles against the political forces opposing her along her life's journey. The plot has a striking similarity with Mamata's life, who struggled hard against the Left Front rule in West Bengal and wrested power in 2011 by dislodging the Communist government after 30 years.

The Bengal unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has moved the poll panel seeking a "review of the film on the similar lines that was done by the Election Commission (EC) in case of a biopic depicting Prime Minister Narendra Modi"."If some young people have collected stories and expressed themselves, that's up to them. Not related to us. I am not Narendra Modi," Banerjee added.
