Actress Juhi Chawla says while she tried her hand at everything, comedy came to her effortlessly
Nivedita Niranjankumar (DNA; January 23, 2013)
Juhi Chawla has always been associated with laughter. If she isn’t laughing herself then she is making the audiences laugh. Does the real you translate on screen? I don’t know how it translated on screen when I started out. I realised this side of me when I was in front of the camera and was given scenes to do that were amusing. I found that I enjoyed them a lot. Though I tried hard to be like Madhuri — dance better and be a seductress — it took a lot of effort. Comedy was the only area where I felt I didn’t have to put in any effort. So, I actually discovered myself during my films, not before or after that.
Did you get enough opportunities for such kind of roles? For a long time, I didn’t believe in it. People still ask me ‘why don’t you do great scripts which are fun comedies’. But I don’t think I can carry a whole film just trying to be funny. And I like it when there’s no effort. Within the script, there are funny moments and other things also go along. For a while, I did not realise that this was my strength. And when I did realise it, I can’t say I did not get opportunities from outside. I think I did not work hard enough on it. I thought I was an all-rounder and could do everything…
…But you are an all-rounder. From where did you get the inspiration? I have been a fan of Sridevi. I used to try and emulate what she did More >
Juhi Chawla looks back the tumultuous phase of her life during which her brother slipped into coma, her cousin passed away and films were her only solace
Soumyadipta Banerjee (MUMBAI MIRROR; January 15, 2013)
Juhi Chawla, whose smile never failed to light up the screen, has been battling several personal setbacks – her brother has been in coma since April, 2010 and her cousin succumbed to cancer last year. But it has not stopped her from dealing with these adversities with steely resolve, as she prepares for her role in Gulab Gang with Madhuri Dixit.
When Mirror caught up with her, she seemed to be battling a surge of emotions. But the mention of her fans, who are keen to see more of her post Son Of Sardaar, she seems to brighten up. “I really don’t want to do an arbitrary role in a big film where I play a mother or an elder sister and there is no scope of acting. At this stage, I want to do only what is good and interesting. I liked my role in Son Of Sardaar. I have done a film called Main Krishna Hoon and you will see me in Gulab Gang soon,” she tells us, adding, there are more projects in the anvil.
The 46-year-old-actress reflects on a rather tumultuous phase of her life, when she clutched at the only thing that brought her solace, kept her mind off the crises in her personal life. In April, 2010, her brother Bobby Chawla, CEO with SRK’s Red Chillies, suffered a massive stroke while having dinner at a restaurant and slipped into coma. “My world came crashing down,” More >

Actor Juhi Chawla seems to be rather busy these days. Earlier this year, the actor had lent her voice for the animation flick Krishna Aur Kans, which is one of India’s entries to the Oscars in the animation category. And now the actor is gearing up for two back-to-back releases. The first being the Diwali biggie Son Of Sardaar and the next week will see her in another release Main Krishna Hoon. While Juhi is excited about all her releases, Son Of Sardaar is special to her for more than one reason. The film will see her team up with Sanjay Dutt and Tanuja after a gap of almost 13 years since their last outing together in Safari. This the actor revealed to chef Rakesh Sethi on a radio show.
The actor admitted that it was fun to work with them after all these years. Talking about the comfort level with co-stars, Juhi had earlier admitted that it is important to have a comfortable working equation with everyone. “Though an actor’s performance doesn’t completely rely on personal equations, I think it definitely enhances your performance if you share a certain comfort level with your co-star. After having done so many films and played so many different roles on screen, now the draw for me to do a film is only when I know I will enjoy the experience. I am not trying to get anywhere, so I am okay taking things at my own pace — slow or fast. I would never take up a film where I know I won’t be comfortable in that set-up,” Juhi had More >
After 25 successful years in the film industry, Juhi Chawla says she has no goal to chase. She just wants to do good cinema
Prathibha Joy (BOMBAY TIMES; April 20, 2011)
It is not easy to describe Juhi Chawla. She’s remembered for her bubbly charm, and her commercial and offbeat cinema roles. While the roles have changed with her playing more age-appropriate characters, what has remained is her charm and down-to-earth nature.
“At one point I thought I’d have to give it all up. I was getting married, then kids happened. But I’ve been fortunate to get the kind of work I love to do. True, I don’t get a role a day, but there’s no fear of not getting work. When I started out 25 years ago, I was worried I wouldn’t last six months. But I’m still here and now, what have I got to chase? I’m in no race. I just want to do good cinema. If I don’t like something, I can say no,” says Juhi, who will next be seen in her third film with director Onirban.
And when Onir, who is known for making socially relevant films, approached her with a film, she couldn’t say no. “I’ve worked with Onir on My Brother Nikhil and Bas Ek Pal and know how genuine a filmmaker he is. When he first came to me, he didn’t want me to act in his film. He had the script for just one of the four stories that he eventually went on to make and wanted me to contribute financially. He wanted to take the project to social networking sites and get people to contribute. I was only happy to More >
As a generous gesture, Katrina is doing a cameo as Radha in a film on Krishna, which is being produced by her hairstylist. She isn’t charging this time
Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 29, 2010)
Till yesterday, she was a Barbie girl, in her Barbie world. And yes, life in plastic is fantastic. But now, Katrina Kaif is all set for a rather interesting makeover. She will play a cameo as Radha in a film on the life of Lord Krishna.
Though Kat did dress up like a mythological figure in the song Main bararish kar doon paise ki in the film De Dana Dan, playing Radha will be an entirely new experience for the actress.
The film called Main Krishna Hoon will be on the life of Lord Krishna, starting from his childhood Leelas (pranks) up to adulthood. The film is being directed by Rajiv S Ruia of My Friend Ganesha fame.
Not revealing much about the plot, Katrina says, “Let it be a secret. But yes, I am doing this film on the life of Lord Krishna because my hairstylist Promila Hunter is producing the film. When she asked me if I would make an appearance I didn’t even ask her what my role was. Only later did I get to know that it is a film on the life of Lord Krishna.”Kat with her hairstylist Promila Hunter
Though she makes a guest appearance, Katrina who is currently in Patiala shooting for a Yash Raj film, is busy preparing for it. She is using all her free time to read up on the life of Lord Krishna.

It’s called “The jungle”, “dog-eat-dog world”, “rat race” and what not. The truth is Bollywood is all this and yet it is also a world where goodwill, hard-work and sincerity is something that has its value. Shows in the way Hrithik Roshan, who has quite a bit of clout in the industry, has gone out of his way for his spot boy Nandan Mahato.
Nandan who has produced few Bhojpuri films is making his first Hindi film Main Krishna Hoon, a 3-D animation-cum-live action film. And none other than Hrithik has given him the green signal. Nandan started out in the industry as Juhi Chawla’s spot boy, but after she got married, Nandan joined Hrithik’s staff and was with him for almost 10 years starting from Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai.
Therefore when he wanted to make a Hindi film, he approached Roshan Jr. who was more than encouraging. Hrithik even flew down to Hyderabad to shoot for the film and didn’t even think of charging Mahato for it. Not only Hrithik but even Juhi has shot for the film. Katrina Kaif’s hairdresser Pomilla, who is the co-producer of the film, has even managed to get Katrina to do an appearance.
So much for the starry tantrums that we keep hearing about Bollywood stars, Katrina, Juhi and Hrithik have decided to be part of this film only because of the sincerity and goodwill that Nandan and Pomilla have earned over the years.
