Bollywood star Govinda, a day after being nominated as the Congress candidate from North Mumbai Lok Sabha constituency, on Friday took a local train from Borivali to hometown Virar.
He will take on five-time Member of Parliament and Union Minister Ram Naik in the forthcoming election.
Govinda, popularly called 'Virar Ka Chokra', said the journey had brought back memories of his 'good old days'.
"The only thing that I cannot do today while travelling in a local train, which I used to do that time, is to whistle Hindi songs," he said while travelling in a second-class compartment.
"Nothing has changed in the train, people are same, their problems are same," he said.
Travelling by a local train almost after 18 years, Govinda said, this was just a beginning of his quest to 'realign' with common people.
