Much to the amusement of cast and crew of Paa, Vidya Balan got disappeared after shooting for Paa in Cambridge. But what made the actress vanish is the question everybody had on their lips?
“It’s nothing so dramatic. Yes, I did stay back in Cambridge. I simply had to. I had no choice.”
Recounting the experience Vidya says, “I just couldn’t help it. Just being in Cambridge shooting was not enough. I felt a deep connect with the campus and the environment. I just wanted to walk around the campus with books in hand so I’d look like a student.”
Once the shooting was over, Vidya decided to stay over. “Luckily I’ve a friend in Cambridge. I stayed with her, and her husband. It was the most enriching experience of my life. Just the air and the feel of the place are so special.”
Vidya not wants to create her own Cambridge ambience in Mumbai. "I can’t afford a place in Cambridge. But I know of a place near Mumbai that offers the same climate and topography. But I am not revealing it.”
Not a problem Vidya!
