Travelling in local trains is the quickest mode of transportation in Kolkata. That is what Vidya Balan, who is currently shooting in the city for the sequel to her hit film, Kahaani (2012), realised recently.
She chose to board a local train to reach Howrah Junction railway station from Chandannagar, as she was getting late for a shoot due to traffic.
A source says, “Vidya wanted to save time and avoid traffic. She didn’t mind travelling by local train, and reached the venue, where the shoot was happening, in an hour. The local commuters were surprised when they spotted her on the train with her team.
She chatted with them as well.” The source adds that Vidya is having a blast in Kolkata, which is one of her favourite cities in India.
The Bollywood star says, “It was so much fun travelling in the local train. I also bought jhumkas (earrings) while I was on it.”
