The Paa actress is shooting in Kalimpong, a hill station in the state of West Bengal.

Vidya took to Twitter to announce that the team has started the shooting.

"First day off during the Kahaani 2 shoot. The trees in Kalimpong seem to be swaying to Gulzarsaab's "Musafir hoon yaaron". Just who isn't a fan?!" Vidya tweeted on Sunday night.

Kahaani 2 is a sequel to Kahaani, which is co-written and directed by Sujoy Ghosh.

Kahaani followed the adventures of a pregnant woman named Vidya Bagchi, who comes to Kolkata from London in search of a man. Balan had won a lot of acclaim for her performance.
