Saumya is best known for playing the role of Anita Bhabhi in the popular comedy show Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain. She has been sharing pictures and videos from her Kashmir trip on social media.
‘Kashmir’s tourism has improved’
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Saumya said, “I can see that tourism has greatly improved since the last time I came here. I could not visit downtown last time as I was under the perception that downtown was not too safe. But I shot there this time, and I saw this is the real Kashmir.” She added that she liked the old architecture and old buildings in the valley.
She also said that she is working on a few of her own projects and Kashmir is number one on her list of places to shoot those. Claiming that Kashmir is the place closest to her heart, Saumya added, “I feel like visiting this place in all seasons. Earlier, I came here in winter and now I am here this summer. People are now telling me that this place is even more beautiful in autumn. The people of Kashmir are very welcoming so I would suggest to all my friends that instead of going to Europe or any other foreign country, please come and see the raw beauty of Kashmir.”
