Singing is something that I am getting hang of. I may take up singing in future for sure,” said the actor who is focussing on offbeat films these days. In last few years she has been seen in films like My Brother Nikhil, Jhankaar Beats and 3 Deewarein. Her last release was the critically acclaimed film I AM. Though the film has been appreciated a lot, Juhi didn’t get any awards for her performance. However, the 44-year-old is not concerned as she believes in associating herself with strong content.
“It’s heart-warming…wherever I AM has been showcased, I get a wonderful response from audiences. It’s a low-budget film, we couldn’t do marketing on a large scale. I believe the content matters more than anything else. Awards or no awards, it doesn’t matter if your audience likes your film. The world will realise it someday. I am anyways not bothered about it,” she said.Click here to read more
