Ma mujhe bachcha nahin chahiye.Main apni aankhon ke samne apne bachche ko marthe huwe nahin dekh na chahthi.
That's Payyal speaking. These are her lines from B.R. Films' blockbuster 'Burning Train' , in which she is getting a big break opposite Vinod Mehra, who plays her "husband". Payyal is on her way home travelling with her mother on the Delhi-Bombay train for her first delivery. It so happens that she gets her labour pains while she is on the train. Navin Nischol, the doctor on the train, comes to her aid. Suddenly, the train catches fire. Payyal doesn't like to give birth to a child whose death she'll have to witness.
After "delivering" her lines, Payyal came smiling towards me and said. "It is quite interesting to work under director Ravi Chopra. Since I'm a new-comer he teaches me all the technicalities besides guiding me as to how I should conduct myself in this field. I've an excellent rapport with Raviji and Uncle (B.R. Chopra). Whenever Uncle is around, I'm in tension and awe-struck."
Payyal is making her debut in Hindi films with 'Burning Train'. She'll also be featuring in Ramanand Sagar's 'Yogeshwar Krishna', B. Subhash's 'Tera Dushman Mera Dushman', Ravi Anand's 'Ma ki Saugandh' and S.K. Luthra's forthcoming untitled venture.
"I got my first break in Punjabi film called Dakra (Takraa), produced by a family friend Sukhdev Ahluwalia. That fetched me an award for acting. It was with this success in hand that I approached B.R. Chora, who also knew my papa. In Dakra, I played the role of a village girl who sacrifices her life for smuggler she loves. It was almost like the role which Parveen Babi essayed in Deewaar.
