If you follow her on Instagram, you’ll know that she is quite the fun person off screen too. She often shares hilarious short videos of herself, following various trends, and it’s a delight to watch her doing reels. Recently, in one such clip, Vidya revealed what she really wants in life, and it was a rather clear choice. No, it isn’t fame or money, but gol gappe! Yes, you read that right. 

Vidya has never shied away from admitting her love for food, and often tries funny social media trends only to confess that she is fond of eating. In this video too, the actor clears the air about her ‘snack choices’, and she has said it out loud. The video starts with a voiceover saying, “Batao tujhe life mai kya chahiye?”. Mouthing the answer, like a pro, Vidya says, “Gol gappe.” It further says, “Gol Gappe ko side mai rakh, ab bata tujhe life mai kya chahiye?”. To this, Vidya adorably responds, “Side mai rakhe hua gol gappe”. Take a look at the video:
