Anchal Sabharwal, the pretty girl who plays the character of Zoya in Aek Chabi Hai Padoss Mein, comes from an army background. But that doesn't make her any less emotional.
Recently, the serial got much appreciation for the way it depicted bomb blasts in a train on its way from India to Pakistan. The emotions displayed in the episodes were so intense that after viewing it for a while, Anchal couldn't stop her tears. "It was shot in such a way that I got emotional and started crying. I felt as if I was really involved in the story. My mom comforted me and brought me back to reality."
A few relatives of Anchal's reside across the border. So the actress says she knows that commoners in both the countries only want peace. But politicians and terrorists are the biggest impediments, she feels.
