The same lady had got a chance to play the character of Draupadi in the start of her career but she refused the role. After winning the crown of Miss India in 1984, B R Chopra had offered her the role of Draupadi in his famous epic Mahabharat which got aired in 1985. After Juhi's refusal the role was portrayed by Rupa Ganguly. Juhi even shot for 2-3 days for this epic but soon she was offered a role by Mukul Anand in Sultanat and she decided to grab it by opting out of the television show.
Calling herself to be a mixture of Sita and Draupadi, Juhi regrets about her decision to opt out of Mahabharat but she is happy that by giving her voice to Sita she has successfully bought life to Sita's character.
We can call it a Kismet Konnection for Juhi as before entering the small screen she got a chance to work on the big screen and make her name count amongst one of the best actresses Bollywood has ever produced.
