Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla was sceptical about visiting Pakistan to meet her relatives, but upon her return she says she has had a pleasant and memorable trip.

"Back in Mumbai from Karachi. To be honest, I was wary of going to Pakistan, but it turned out a nice memorable trip," Juhi tweeted.

Of her experience, she added: "Two worlds co-exist in Karachi. A normal city with traffic, bustling markets and malls. And quite another on the outskirts. It was a private, short and pleasant stay. Loved being with my cousins and nieces."

The actress along with her husband Jai Mehta went to Karachi to attend a family wedding. She says they walked around with a security man.

"We had an armed security at all times that we left the house. Important people have them there. A reminder of the undercurrent of violence," she posted.

Juhi says several people across the border were happy to see her - a mark that Bollywood is indeed popular there.

"Pakistani people enjoy Hindi movies. They've watched them all, and were so pleasantly surprised and happy to see me there. As I said my goodbyes, the cook says 'Salman (Khan) bhai ko mera salaam kehna (Give my regards to Salman bhai)'. The helper says, 'Please bring Shah Rukh Khan here', the maid enquires, 'Will you be meeting Aamir (Khan)?' I couldn't help but laugh. They were so sweet," Juhi wrote.
