Juhi Chawla: I thought industry will shut down without me

This bubbly Bollywood actor has no qualms admitting her insecurities

Juhi Chawla says she turned down a lot of big film offers at the peak of her career as she thought the industry would shut down without her.  “When you are 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,” Juhi said in an interview.

The actor revealed that she had refused films like Raja Hindustani, Dil Toh Pagal Hai, Judaai among others. “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,” she said.

When asked if she regrets not doing those films, Juhi says, “At that time I was still working and I had project after project. Now when I look back, I can see that I was doing silly thing, but that was the phase I was in and you end up doing all these things (rejecting films).”

The vivacious actor seems to be experimenting with roles now, but at the same time she plays it safe. “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,” she said.

Juhi and Madhuri Dixit Nene are pitted against each other for the first time in Gulaab Gang. When the makers came to Juhi, she was surprised but found it interesting.
