The concert used to go on at night for three days and used to be wonderful. I was on the same organizing committee. Actually, I was a volunteer. We used to help organize the program and at night when the show was over, we used to go for a walk at Nariman Point.”

When Vidya begged for food

The actress further shared, “Once I was given a challenge. They asked me to knock on the door of the coffee shop at Oberoi- The Palms and ask them for some food. I was an actor and they did not know this. I kept knocking on the door. Everyone started getting irritated. I knocked many times and kept saying, ‘Please, I am hungry. I haven’t eaten anything since yesterday.’ After some time those people started looking in the other direction. My friend was so embarrassed that she asked me to come. I won the bet at the end.”

Describing her love for Jim Jam Biscuit, Vidya said, “That challenge was for Jim Jam Biscuit. Our sponsor for the concert was Britannia and we had lots of biscuits. But I had said that if I win, I will get an extra packet of Jim Jam and I did.”
