“Certain scenes [in Kahaani] were shot at various locations around Kolkata, so Vidya has been revisiting these places to get back into the swing of things,” says a source.

Vidya has already been to the Mona Lisa guest house, which is where a major part of the previous film was shot. While walking through a local market, she even bumped into someone who worked on the last movie. Vidya is in Kolkata for a two-month-long schedule.

She says, “The Mona Lisa guest house brings back a flood of memories. This is where the Kahaani journey began, and it will always be a special place for me.”
