Celebs Who Chose To Travel In The Mumbai Metro

On Tuesday, the politician and veteran actress, Hema Malini, was seen travelling via the Mumbai metro. To avoid a two-hour trip to Dahisar, she decided to hop on a metro and cover the distance in only half an hour. She also shared her wonderful experience and some pictures on her Twitter handle. She described her experience as unique and pleasant.

Akshay Kumar

Back in 2019, Akshay Kumar decided to avoid peak traffic hours in Mumbai and travel by Mumbai metro. He took a train from Ghatkopar to Versova and cut his travel time from 2 hours to 20 minutes. Sharing his experience on Twitter, he even shared that not a lot of people recognised him.

Aditi Rao Hydari is quite punctual and likes to be on time to fulfil all her commitments. Back in 2015, she promised her presence at an event but was running extremely late due to busy roads. Thinking on her feet, she decided to count on the Mumbai metro to drop her off at her destination on time. She even revealed that her driver reached the location much later than she did, and it was an effective decision.
