A video that is going crazy viral on social media through several reshares and other means features a woman dressed as Manjulika, played by Vidya Balan in the film Bhool Bhulaiyaa, and scaring people on Noida Metro’s Aqua line. While many were unamused by the act and shared that ‘drama is appreciated in theatres’, others demanded a full version of the video.

An Instagram page posted her photo and video with the caption, “Arey behen (O sister).” It is accompanied by several hashtags, including #ViralMetroIncident. A text overlay on the picture reads, “Image being tired and coming back from the office on a Saturday evening and this happens….”

The now-viral video opens to show a woman named Priya Gupta clad in a yellow-coloured saree with unkept hair and makeup smeared all over her face. She then can be seen walking across a metro compartment on the Aqua line and trying to scare people sitting there. Towards the end, she approaches a boy sitting with his headphones on and taps on his shoulder to attract his attention. Though he was unfazed initially, he ran for his life after looking at her. She later sits at the same spot where he was sitting.

Not just this, Priya even performed to Ami Je Tomar from Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 at a metro station in the same outfit. She also posted a video of herself dancing to the song, and it is also slowly gaining traction online. “AMMI MANJULIKA,” she wrote while sharing the video on Instagram.
