We appeal to all passengers to avoid such activities & stunts in train travel. Kindly refrain from such activities in traveling. These are not as per the norms of travel.
Trains are meant for public transport and not for these activities.

While the specific date and location of the incident have not been established, it is believed that it occurred on the Central Railways suburban line between the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) and the Sandhurst Road stations.
Look at the video below here!
Thanks to user @mumbaimatterz, the video was shared across social media, most notably on X (previously Twitter). With the tagline “Entertainment… Now Belly Dancing inside Mumbai Local Train,” it soon went viral. The #MumbaiLocal Trains appear to be the most active venue for showcasing talent. A flood of comments and debates followed this post.
The Central Railways Mumbai division’s manager responded online, pleading with riders to refrain from such antics. Trains, the statement emphasized, are not venues for acts of this nature but rather modes of public transportation.
People’s thoughts were all over the place. Udaykumar J. Nair was skeptical, claiming the performer was just interested in the video for the publicity it would bring. Dheevar Paralkar highlighted the limitations of police presence in each cabin, placing the onus of deterring such behavior squarely on the shoulders of the passengers as a whole.
Makarand, another concerned user, advocated for a respectful and secure computing environment by calling for prompt and strict action by @Central_Railway and @RPFCR to maintain safety and decorum.
Anything for Likes and Subscribers🤦🏼♂️She should be counselled and people behind this video if any to be booked.

police cannot be in each compartment to stop this. It’s the people who have to ensure that they come together to stop this. There will also be some who will support it by saying she’s not causing anyone any harm. Authorities will catch her but she will be let go with a warning.

Abhijeet Patki, an X user, joked that if such shows took place on trains headed for Virar or Kalyan, seats would magically appear. Bhavesh Pandya joked on ‘X’ that the frequent delays on the railway could account for the unexpected appearance of entertainment.
If they come in Virar or Kalyan train, 100 sqft of space will get empty instantly… 🤣🤣
