Telly Buzz had reported earlier that the team of Zee TV and Drishtant Media's Aap Ki Antara has been invited to Delhi, where they were to be honored with an award for being people's most loved show.
The visit apparently proved to be full of many pleasant surprises, especially for little Zaynah Vastani. According to our source, "Zaynah obviously was well received as it's her innocent little face that became the face of the show itself. She carried herself very well all through the felicitation ceremony."
Also, a chance stroll on the streets, for the sake of an interview with a television channel, made people go crazy over Zaynah. Says the source, "People got very excited to see Zaynah. In fact a few army men, who were practicing their march past, stopped midway and came over to talk to her. They blessed Zaynah as she was working for a very good cause."
The army men praised the entire team for their endeavor. Says the source, "The army fellas commented that the cause the team was working on has really attracted the general public. It has made them 'aware' of the term Autism."
The wild trip continued till the time they caught their flight! The source says, "When they were waiting for their flight in the lounge, one by one people of all ages, from four year olds to sixty four year olds, came up to Zaynah and requested to pose for pictures with them. They took her autograph on small purses, dupattas, hands, currency notes, boarding pass, hanky, plain paper…just about anything they could get their hands on. Because of this unexpected hullabaloo, the Aap Ki Antara team missed their flight!"
But the fan following that caused the problem also solved it. Says the source, "The AKA team was accommodated in the next flight because the Airlines' supervisor was also a die-hard fan of Zaynah! She obliged the team saying- 'Just because of Antara'. The whole team was truly exhilarated with the day's events!"
Like the old saying goes- All's well that ends well!
