This New Zealand Was The Meeting Point Of Rajpal Yadav And His Friends During His Younger Days

Actor Rajpal Yadav took team Curly Tales to a less crowded spot hidden in Mumbai’s Aarey Colony. What he was calling New Zealand is actually New Zealand Hostel. The road to the hostel is a gorgeous one, surrounded by towering trees. In front of a hostel there is a huge field where young people go jogging, play cricket and much more. The New Zealand Hostel is a nostalgic spot for Rajpal Yadav as it was the meeting point for him and his friends during his younger days. The actor said, “We used to jog and do many morning chores here. We used to bring snacks in the morning here. We played football and after playing for around two hours we used to enjoy the food together.”
