Actress with sparkling eyes and beautiful smile ‘Juhi Chawla’ hits 49!
90’s comedy queen Juhi chwala turns a2 year older. She is an actor with a million-dollar smile, sparkling eyes, and an adorable face. Her positive and warm aura won a million hearts back in the late 80s and early 90s. She entered Bollywood at a time when a pretty face like hers was meant only to pull the audience to the theaters. But, back then, there was something unique about her which made her a class apart. It was her spot-on comic timing. She is Juhi Chawla who proved her mettle in the entertainment industry with movies like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Darr, Yes Boss, Ishq, Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke and My Brother Nikhil among others. She is compelety a beautiful soul.
In her more than a three-decades-long career, Juhi broke the stereotype of a pretty face being incapable of making people laugh. For that matter, back in the 90s, even the A-list actors and the character actors like Johnny Lever, Kadar Khan, Sanjai Mishra, Anupam Kher and Paresh Rawal fell in separate categories, with former being the lead actors and the latter being just comedians or comedy actors. But then came a time when Juhi was given an opportunity to try her hands at comedy in the mainstream commercial films which she grabbed readily.
And, rib-tickling movies like Yes Boss, Ishq, Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke and Mr and Mrs Khiladi proved that the actress came like a breath of fresh in times when women were more of an eye candy in movie.
Juhi’s hearty laughter, her funny expressions and her commendable comic timing made her the queen of comedy in that era. The adulation didn’t only come from the movie buffs but also from her co-actors.
When Hum Hain Raahi Pyaar Ke released in 1993 in which Juhi played the role of a Tamil girl Vyjayanthi Iyer, it was not difficult to find a glimpse of real life Juhi in it. Her much lively, funny and not-so-serious in life character reflected the real personality and it appeared as if the role was tailored made for her.
In 1997 release Ishq, Juhi once again left the audiences in splits with her endless gags on Aamir as she moved away from her simpering sweetness.
Juhi got hitched to Jay Mehta. He is a Businessman and owns the Mehta Group of companies which is spread over Africa, India, Canada and USA. He was earlier married to Sujata Birla, sister of Yash Birla who died in Flight 605 plane crash on Feb 14, 1990. Couple is blessed with two children a girl named Jahnavi (born in 2001) and a boy named Arjun (born in 2003).
