Nita Ambani replaces Mamata to declare ISL open West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee speaks as Nita Ambani, Praful Patel and Sanjib Goyanka look on during the opening ceremony of Indian Super League 2014 in Kolkata on Sunday. PTI

Kolkata: It was not West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee but Nita Ambani who declared open the Indian Super League football tournament here on Sunday.

Earlier, it had been decided that Banerjee would declare the league open.

Nita, chairperson of IMG-Reliance & founding Chairperson of Football Sports Development (ISL), completed the formality by saying in Bengali, "Aami Indian Super League er subho suchno korchi (I declare the Indian Super League Open)".

The declaration, which was at the end of 45-minute-long star-studded opening ceremony, was followed by a round of dazzling fireworks in the sky.

Mamata, however, appeared on the stage before the opening ceremony and thanked the organisers for choosing Kolkata for the inaugural game.
