Juhi Chawla

Actress Juhi Chawla revealed that she had turned down a number of  big film offers at the peak of her career. She refused films like ‘Raja Hindustani’, ‘Dil Toh Pagal Hai’,’ Judaai’ among many others. On the misconception that  the Industry will shut down without her.

As per sources, Juhi said, “When you were at your peak, you stop taking chances, you become indispensable and think that without you the industry will shut down as you are young and successful. You make foolish decisions. I did not do couple of films which then became blockbusters. It is all in the past, so it is ok to talk about it and you learnt from it. I think most of them were two heroine projects, so I did not do it. I am responsible for Karisma Kapoor’s stardom and she doesn’t know about it.”


Juhi further added,”I still play safe somewhere. I do roles and films within certain parameters. This (‘Gulaab Gang’) was something new and different to me, but I enjoyed it. It (‘Gulaab Gang’) had fiery dialogues. The character is mean, manipulative, little quirky, I had not done something like this before. I was sure people will not believe me as I am not like that character. I asked them to rewrite the script, they changed a few things, like they gave a reason for my character to be this way, but the whole zing of the character went and I felt we had killed the film. So we went with what was written initially.”

Juhi plays a corrupt politician in the film and for reference she saw pictures of real life politicians like Sushma Swaraj, Mamta Banerjee and others to know how they look and followed the film’s director Soumik Sen.

‘Gulaab Gang’ is all set to release on 7th March.
