Bollywood's one of the most successful directors Yash Chopra is head over heels for West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee since he believes that he had never come across a more dedicated politician.

"I have met a lot of people and politicians in my life. But I have never seen someone as dedicated as her," Chopra said at a FICCI FRAMES session on media and entertainment industry. Recalling his meeting with Banerjee at the International Film Festival of India two years ago, Chopra said he was dragged out of a dinner party by her and asked to explain in detail problems of the film industry. "I didn't know her so well then. But when I met her I told her about the problems of the industry. Later she dragged me out of a dinner as she wanted to understand the problems in detail," the Dadasaheb Phalke awardee said.

He also thanked the CM for writing a personal letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to apprise him of the issues facing films.
