Fresh from her stunning role in Gulab Gang,


Juhi Chawla is looking forward to her upcoming release -- a Hollywood film co-produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

“It’s a very small role,” says a shy Juhi, who plays actor Om Puri’s wife in the Lasse Hallström directorial, The Hundred-Foot Journey, that also stars British actor Helen Mirren.

“Of course, I’m still quite excited about it, but I wish I had a ­longer role in the film,” says Juhi, adding that it was a great experience to be a part of the project.

“Steven Spielberg is iconic... that revered kind of ­filmmaker. It was an altogether different experience to work on a Hollywood project,” says Juhi, who’s currently on a vacation with her husband Jai Mehta and kids, abroad, after the big win of her team in the recently-concluded T20 tournament.

When asked why she chose to quietly smile after the win, while her team’s co-owner Shah Rukh Khan was seen doing cartwheels, Juhi breaks into a giggle, saying, “Imagine me doing cartwheels!”
