Vidya Balan had a bout of nostalgia when she recently met up with college mate, Yeotania Stanton after 10 years. While the actress moved on to become a star, Yeotania became a make-up person.
Vidya Balan was doing a photo shoot for a fashion magazine at Mehboob Studios. Mickey Contractor was her make-up artist. There was another woman, Yeotania Stanton, present, who was attending to the make-up and hairstyling of the other girls present. Yeotania distinctly remembered Vidya as one of her classmates. She didn't say anything, assuming Balan would've forgotten her after her new-found star status.
Hey, I know you!
Stanton was chatting with Mickey when Vidya passed by. According to a source, she smiled and greeted the actress, who looked at Yeo-tania and stood still for a moment. Then the actress shouted out her name. The excited girl was thrilled that her old friend recognised her, even though they met after ten years.
Yeotania recalls, "We were specialising in Sociology and were in the same class in St Xavier's College. During those days, we kept in touch regularly exchanging notes and discussing studies. We lost touch after we passed out of college. She got busy with her own things and so did I."
About catching up with Balan she adds, "Once we got talking there was no stopping us. Vidya wanted to know everything about my life. What was I up to? What were my plans? Where had I been all these years? How was my family? etc. Of course, I answered all her questions and she answered mine. We fondly recalled our college days too. It was the most memorable photo session of my life."
Vidya and Yeotania have now exchanged numbers and plan to keep in touch.
