Considered arch rivals, Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit were never cast together in a film. But now Juhi is playing vamp to Madhuri’s heroine in their forthcoming film Gulab Gang. “I have a couple of scenes with her, which we have already shot. It’s been lovely because there was no pressure. Earlier, we were constantly compared — both of us were playing heroines to the same heroes and trying to do similar things. Now, I am the vamp and she is the heroine. It’s fine, and together we will make the film rock,” reveals Juhi. This is the first time in her career that the actress will be playing a negative role. “That’s what interested me besides the script, which has a lot of punch ” says Juhi, who will be seen in Main Krishna Hoon next. “In that film, it’s the kind of Juhi you have seen and liked – funny, emotional and interacting with kids,” she smiles.
Juhi will also be seen as a guest in the first episode of a new TV show Safar Filmi Comedy Ka. Juhi, who has an excellent comic timing herself, considers Andaz Apna Apna to be the most hilarious film. “I have seen it twice and both times I doubled up with laughter,” she says. Ask her who among her co-stars was the best in comedy and pat comes the reply “Govinda. He was fantastic when it came to comedy. It was both interesting and challenging to improvise with him,” says the actress.
