Vidya Balan Loves Filter Coffee And Would Choose It Over Tea Any Day
We played a fun game – This or That, with Vidya where she had to choose one out of the two options given to her. We wanted to know which beverage she prefers more: filter coffee or tea. She highlights the fact that she will choose filter coffee over tea any time and day.
She has clearly taken sides with team coffee and it is what it is. Next, we also wanted to know which one she favours more: Gulab Jamun or Roshogulla. She enthusiastically replied with a long stress – ROSHOGULLA!
This Is The Film Which Made Her Go To Theatres Again
Vidya is a pure 80s kid at heart, and during that era, a lot of the cinema halls were not in good condition. So going to the theatres to watch a movie was not always an option. She recalls that she watched ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’ in its 45th release week! After watching this film she realised how much of an experience watching a film on the big screen truly is.
Since then, she started going to cinema halls regularly. She also clarifies that she watched ‘1942: A Love Story’ before ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!’ and absolutely loved how the film was shot. Vidya exclaimed that Manisha Koirala was looking divine in the film.
Check out the whole video to know which movie theatre Vidya Balan went to during her childhood days in Chembur. Even Kamiya told us about the cinema hall she used to go to because she is a Chembur girl as well.
