Having heard stories about the exodus from her family members, Basha couldn't deal with her emotions while shooting one of the most heart-wrenching scenes in the film. She suffered a panic attack and isolated herself for three days after an incident on the sets.
"Vivek sir had cast Kashmiri Pandits there. When they were being shot with bullets, I started shouting there and started saying don't kill my people. I had forgotten that acting was happening. The production team came to me and consoled me. Even Vivek sir came. I was not breathing at that time, I had a panic attack. Very embarrassed that despite being an acting coach, how could I have had such a breakdown. I could not even make eye contact with the crew members," she shared during an interview with Aaj Tak.
She added that her character, Sharda Pandit, will always stay with her. Bhasha, whose family had to leave their home in Kashmir and move to Delhi, said that she considers herself a refugee as she grew up in a camp there. The actress had lost her maternal uncle and aunt to the tragic incident, she shared.
