Scenes from movies flash by as my train approaches the Grand Central Station in New York. We have taken a train from Washington DC early in the morning and though I’m groggy eyed, I’m also excited to arrive at a place I have seen featured in countless movies. New York to me means movies and I remember scenes from Duplicity, Men in Black and One Fine Day, which were filmed at the iconic Grand Central. And well, even scenes from Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. You can’t miss out on Bollywood when you are thinking movies and New York thanks to Johar and company.
British Airways flies Mumbai to New York with a stopover at London and costs approximately Rs 34,000. Air India flies Mumbai to Newark direct and costs around Rs 40,000. In New York if you are short on time (and have toddlers mouthing tired every two minutes with you), it’s perhaps a good idea to get yourself on a Hop On Hop Off Tour apart from exploring on your own.
