Like every Mumbaikar, even Aishwarya Rai Bachchan knows exactly what it gets like at Dadar station

It isn’t the first time celebs have revealed their relatability to common folks. Some who have risen to the top have time and again shared their struggles with fans and have inspired to never give up on dreams. Little did we know that former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan can empathise with Mumbaikars who face the horror of Dadar railway station every day!

As Fanney Khan is out, Ash was busy prior to the release in promotional activities. On Rajeev Masand’s show, the interviewer asked the actress about the one scene from the trailer of the film where her character, a pop star, is seen taking a taxi. The questions took a turn till she revealed her fair share of commuting like a commoner. “I have done the bus and the train, everything, as a college kid. I have done the trains. I know exactly what it gets like at Dadar station,” the actress said. The audience couldn’t keep calm with the spot on relatability.

She continued, “I know what it is like on buses. I know that the rainy season is not the easiest at all on public transport.” For those not aware of this fact in Mumbai, Dadar is one of the important junctions in the city’s lifeline especially for commuters who travel in local trains. This makes it all the more crowded and difficult to handle.

Aishwarya further added that she would want her daughter to learn what life is like for every person. “And I am not saying that I need to kind of shove Aaradhya into all that in the coming years. At the end of the day, we have to consider all aspects of life. It is not that one is going to treat her privileged, but at the same time, just to prove a point I am not going to be irresponsible as her mother. I am gonna have to gauge circumstances in the time. But at the same time, while one can, I definitely want to give her an idea of what life is like for everybody,” she said.
