Those travelling by Mumbai metro met characters from Money Heist and Squid Games. So, is a cosplay event happening on metros that you don’t know about? Read on!

Manjulika Enters Noida Metro

Recently, videos inside the Noida metro show a woman dressed like Manjulika scaring commuters off their wits. Dressed in a sari, with messy hair, smudged kajal and sindoor she walks unsteadily, eerily close to commuters and screams in a hoarse voice “Duraga ashtami ke din, maregi mujhe tu“. While some passengers ran away from the scene, some bravados took out their phones to amusingly shoot videos of the unusual metro incident.
