Juhi Chawla has been one of the best actresses working in the Bollywood industry since the 90s. She has been part of many beautiful films throughout the year.
However, there are many more things that you don’t know about the actress.
Here we summoned the information about this gorgeous actress that might be fascinating to you. You will be surprised to know that Juhi is not just an actress in the Industry.
Born in Ambala, Haryana Juhi completed her schooling at Fort convent school in Mumbai and graduated from Sydenham College, Mumbai. Her Father’s name is Desraj Chawla who has worked as an Intelligence Revenue officer.
The actress is married to industrialist Jay Mehta and the couple is blessed with two children Jhanvi and Arjun Mehta. She is the sister of producer, actor Sanjiv Chawla. Sanjiv is also known as Bobby.
She was crowned Miss India Universe in the USA back in 1984. She was also declared the National costume winner at Miss Universe 1984.
She is one of the few pageant holder actresses who continued to work in Bollywood. Eventually, she would be the second famous actress in this category after Priyanka Chopra.
As told earlier, Juhi is not just an actress, she is a singer, homemaker, and entrepreneur as well.
She has an IPL team with Shah Rukh Khan, and she has also ventured into the restaurant business with her husband and has a restaurant named ‘Pizza Metro Pizza’ in Mumbai.
Juhi and Aamir show great chemistry on screen, however, they fought on the sets of Ishq. Aamir’s prank was too much for her so she did not talk to him for the next 5 years.
Interesting trivia is that she denied the movie Raja Hindustani because Aamir was the hero.
Juhi is one of the big fans of Sridevi. She confessed that Sridevi is the ultimate style icon and she often watched her movies like Lamhe and Chalbaaz.
Yashraj Chopra was famous for shooting his actresses in a white outfit. After making Chandni with Sridevi, he cast Juhi Chawla in iconic Darr where she was seen sporting white outfit just like Sridevi.
Imran Khan was very mesmerized by the beauty of Juhi Chawla since his childhood. He wanted to marry her and he also gave her a wedding ring.
She got married to industrialist Jay Mehta in 1995. She is having a wonderful family with two gorgeous kids Jahnvi and Arjun.
In an interview, she revealed that Jay has been following her with a swamp of gifts, cards, and flowers until she agreed to go out with him.
Juhi might be the only actress who was very active in the industry but wouldn’t get the chance to work with all three Khans of the industry.
She has given many hits with Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan but she never shared the screen space with Salman Khan.
Juhi accepted that she was never friends with Salman Khan even when Salman did a cameo scene with her in Deewana Mastana. In koffee with Karan, She said, “There were events where we met and I would look at Salman and he would look at me as if he did not know who I was.
There have been incidents where I really did not know what was going on in his mind. And because we never worked together I could not just pick up the phone and speak to him.”
Juhi confessed about the cold war between actresses during the 90s. Juhi and Madhuri are the rising actresses in the 90s.
They came together in Gulab Gang where Juhi plays the villain. Juhi said, “I was apprehensive of taking a film (Dil To Pagal Hai) with Madhuri earlier when we were all rising in our careers.
At that time I did not take on a film because she was in it.” She revealed, “I had just done Darr with Yash Ji and was used to all the attention. So when I was offered Dil To Pagal Hai, I said I don’t want to be second to her.”
Juhi married someone outside the film fraternity. She cleared that saying, “I don’t think I could have handled my husband looking into the mirror as much as I would. I could not imagine getting married to someone like that.”
Juhi and Shah Rukh not only have an IPL team together, but they have also started the Red Chillies production house together as well.
Juhi’s brother Bobby was the CEO. However, Shah Rukh replaced him with Venky Mysore. Juhi recalled that Venky had informed him about the CEO change.
Juhi accepted that she felt bad that her brother did the job efficiently for so many years, and now it would be done by someone else.
