Juhi loves turning “Bad” for the first time in Gulaab Gang?? By Lipika Varma
So are Nadguri all set to change the Box office mantra with their exuberant and electrifying performances in ”Gulaab Gang. While Juhi feels this being her debut film in the villainous character she is lucky to have opted for it.
Are you happy to turn Villain for the first time?
It would not be too much to say that Madhuri Dixit and myself[ Juhi Chawla] both are happy to work for the first time together.
So will you de throne the Khnas?
Smiles arre bahiya I can’t say anything about this as I WILL START GETTING PHONE CALLS….Yes but we will be happy for our film’s success at the Box office windows…why not?
Was Juhi skeptical on chosing this vilanious charter as her debut role?
” Definitely, when the director Soumik Sen for the first time narrated this story to me I told him have you turned off your head offering me this Bad role…what made you chose me for this character? There must be some confusion….Somehow he convinced me and today after having performed this meticulously written character for me I could perform it possibly only because ofShoumik. Thanks for making me perform so bad… in a good way though….in this negative character. I am the “Bad woman” I feel if at all I had not accepted performing this character I would have missed something very important in my real as well as reel life.”
Did you have any inhibitions of not working with Madhuri?
” Yes, earlier I would never like to work with Madhuri merely because she is such a good dancer and a great actor. I would think ki Madhuri hai toh mein kya kar sakti hoon.. But the very first day when we met and were left alone to chat in the room I understood one thing clearly, if I had not performed this time with Madhuri then I would have surely deprived myself of her company. We broke the ice while discussing so many aspects of life. It has been indeed a joy ride and a learning experience working with both Mdhuri and Shoumik. “
How easily could Juhi mouth the colloquial words?
Adding further she said,” I am contented that the job of dancing and doing some great action performances’ in “Gulaab Gang” has been bestowed upon Madhuri….”Mouthing happening words like “Ghanta” etc she smilingly quips,” Well! I had to shed all my inhibitions and mouth all these colloquial words in a typical manner. I would give credit to Shoumik for bringing in this shade into me at this point of time in life. Turning “Bad” makes me feel “Good indeed!!”
Working in women oriented power-packed characters of women folks what does she have to say?
“I look at women empowerment on the whole? I realized this character to be the best one that I may have performed until this date. No woman should hesitate educating themselves from time to time and also standing for their own cause. It is high time women need to protect their rights \stand up and ask for their rights.”
Last but not the least -Is Mads and Juhi set to de- throne the ‘Khans’ at the box office? Well! What can we say? I better say nothing or else I will get calls from them?? She quips smilingly in light manner. But yes we would love GG to be a box office success.
