No politics please, says Juhi Chawla

Speculation is rife that Juhi Chawla is a BJP candidate for the Gujarat Assembly polls in December and will be pitched against Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee chief Arjun Modhwadia. BJP spokesperson Vijay Rupani said that they were contemplating fielding her from Porbandar, since her husband Jai Mehta is from the town.

Speculation is rife that Juhi Chawla is a BJP candidate for the Gujarat Assembly polls in December and will be pitched against Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee chief Arjun Modhwadia. BJP spokesperson Vijay Rupani said that they were contemplating fielding her from Porbandar, since her husband Jai Mehta is from the town.

The actor laughs off the buzz saying, “I don’t know the first thing about politics. I wasn’t even in the country when this news got around. There’s no way I’m getting into politics; that’s one of the few things I’m absolutely clear about.”

Meanwhile, Juhi returns to the theatres today with animated feature film, Krishna Aur Kans, as the voice of Yashoda. “I’d never done something like this before. It was a challenge standing in a recording studio trying to visualise a character, who’d be moulded after I was through with the dubbing. The film was delayed until Reliance Animation took it over, about a year ago. I voiced Sita’s character in Ramayana: The Epic as well,” says Juhi, who says that her children, Jahanvi and Arjun, were tickled pink when they saw bits of it. “They cribbed that I don’t speak as sweetly with them.”

Another 3D animation film, Main Krishna Hoon was also lining up for a Janmashtami release, but will now come during Dusshera. “I did that a year ago. Growing up, Krishna was my favourite God and I feel blessed to be doing these films,” she says.

On Diwali she has a third film, SOS — Son Of Sardar, coming up. “The film opens on November 13, which is my birthday. It’s a happy coincidence,” she says.
