On Mon­day morn­ing, it was just an­other day at New Delhi Rail­way Sta­tion, un­til the clock struck 8.15am and the Su­vidha Ex­press from Mum­bai screeched to a halt at Plat­form No 4.

The pas­sen­gers of the first class coach alighted and the pho­tog­ra­phers got into ac­tion and every­where all you could see and hear was flash­lights be­ing switched on. Ac­tors Ran­bir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and di­rec­tor Im­tiaz Ali were thronged by peo­ple, and the po­lice per­son­nel, who were present at the plat­form could do lit­tle to keep peo­ple at bay.

The crowd fol­lowed them right up to the park­ing lot of the sta­tion. How­ever, one of the coolies seemed a lit­tle sad. “Ar­rey hum Deepika madam Deepika madam chillate rahe, lekin un­hone toh hu­mari suni hi nahi,” he said. Per­haps he was hop­ing to get clicked with his favourite ac­tor.

A source from the Western Rail­ways’ PRO de­nied there be­ing any spe­cial treat­ment given to the stars. “They booked their tick­ets like nor­mal pas­sen­gers and they trav­elled like ev­ery­one else does. We didn’t give them any­thing spe­cial and they didn’t ask for any­thing spe­cial ei­ther,” he tells us.

How­ever, there have been re­ports that a spe­cial coach had been added to the train to ac­com­mo­date me­dia and the film’s team. Se­cu­rity ar­range­ments were also in place to avoid any un­to­ward in­ci­dent. Ap­par­ently it was Deepika’s wish to travel by train. Ran­bir had shared, “We were any­way trav­el­ling to Delhi. So, when Deepika wished to take the train, we went ahead and can­celled the flight tick­ets.”

Deepika, Ran­bir and Im­tiaz also in­dulged in some of the train food while on­board their jour­ney from Mum­bai to Delhi. The TT also came to check their tick­ets
