Mumbai: 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.
