Keep cool with onions

Vidya Balan

Here comes Madhu my Mottu Maid. When asked why she’s come khaali-haath, she enthuses that she has an item on Vidya Balan, who’s shooting for No One Killed Jessica in New Delhi. Before I can say ‘Bolo,’ she recalls asking how the actress manages to keep her cool in the sultry heat of the capital since her niece suffered a heatstroke the other day. Seems Vidya told her that keeping an onion in the pocket would help in that case.

Mots pointed out that one usually kept onion to fake a fever, and questioned Vidya if the suggestion really helped. The abhinetri asserted that she had never tried it. But she had seen many people in her film’s unit trying this gharelu nuskha to keep cool. Theek hai. If you insist. But if you don’t want me to lose my cool Mottu, then get my cold coffee pronto.
