Anupam - Naseer travel by local train in Mumbai!
What's common to Shahid Kapoor, Naseerudin Shah and Anupam Kher? Well, besides being great actors, they also have one more common element of commonality, which is all three of them have traveled by local trains to promote their films!
Shahid travelled by a local train to promote his film Jab We Met. And the resultant was that the film 'Met' with unprecedented B-O collections and has also been touted to be Kareena's best film till date! After Shahid, it's the turn of Anupam Kher and Naseerudin Shah, the two legendary actors of tinsel town to be doing the same, in order to promote their film together A Wednesday, whose theme is terrorism and train blasts.
The twosome decided to meet at a town side restaurant. While Anupam Kher reached on time, Naseerudin Shah got delayed due to the infamous traffic. Not the one to waste time, Anupam Kher quickly 'feasted' himself with a plate of pav bhaji at 'Satkar Restaurant', much to the surprise and shock of the on lookers there! And the moment when he met with Naseerudin, they immediately went to Churchgate station and boarded the first class compartment of a 2:36 pm Borivali local. And what followed next was sheer time of nostalgia! While Naseerudin reminisced his days when he used to travel without ticket from Bandra to Mumbai Central and back for almost 6 months and with all due respect to the Railway Authority also said that they now can not do any thing to him. How can Anupam Kher be far behind? He too shared his experience stating that once as he was crossing the railway tracks, a man offered him his hand to pull him up on the platform and then refused to leave his hand until he took him to the police station. It was only then he realized that the person to give him his hand was no other than a Police Inspector!
The two actors later got down at Ville Parle station and were seen requesting passengers to not to push each other. Point taken, Mr. Kher and Mr. Shah!
