Juhi Chawla: I was crushed when I was not considered for a Rajshri Film
Bollywood actor Juhi Chawla speaks to HT City Entertainment Editor, Monika Rawal, about her journey of 34 years in the film industry.

She recalls how she was ‘very used’ to doing big budget films at the peak of her career and then doing critically acclaimed films like Jhankar Beats, My brother Nikhil and Gulaab Gang was such a different experience. She also talks about the raging insider vs outsiders debate and how destiny helped her get a film like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak after which she had a string of hits before some films failed, too.

She further reveals losing out on a Rajshri films back in the 90s, and her plans of taking up work on the OTT platforms going forward.
