The meeting assumes significance as it took place just days ahead of Election Commission of India set to announce the schedule for the Assembly elections in West Bengal.

The meeting has triggered speculations about the actor rejoining politics. However, Chakraborty denied any such rumours.

"I have a spiritual connection with Mohan Bhagwat. I had met him in Lucknow and later I had requested him to come to my home when he is in Mumbai," he said.

Chakraboty had joined the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamul Congress, after it came to power in West Bengal in the 2011 Assembly elections. The election had famously dethroned the 34-year-old Left rule.

The actor was later nominated as Rajya Sabha member in 2014 but resigned from the membership of Rajya Sabha within two years, citing health issue.
