"I am responsible for Karisma Kapoor's stardom and she doesn't
even know about it," said Juhi. Actress Juhi Chawla asserted that
she rejected many big films during the peak era of her career which
eventually went into the kitty of Karisma Kapoor, facilitating the
"It's all in the past and so it is okay to talk about it. I did
not do couple of films like Raja Hindustani,
Dil To Pagal Hai, among others
which later became blockbusters. Hence, I am responsible for
Karisma Kapoor's stardom and she even doesn't know about it," claimed the former Miss India. "I think most of these films were
two heroine projects and so I rejected them," added Juhi.
Juhi Chawla who will be seen in a negative role for the first
time in Gulaab Gang further went on to reveal some more
details about reasons behind her rejecting those movies and said
that she thought the industry would shut down without her.
She said, "When you are at your peak, you become indispensable
and think that without you the industry will shut down. And thus,
you make foolish decisions," pointed Juhi. In reply to a question
as whether she regrets rejecting those films, the outspoken lady
said, "At that time I had series of projects but now when I look
back, I can realize I was doing silly things."
Talking about her upcoming release Gulaab Gang, Juhi
said that she still prefers to play safe and does roles in certain
parameters but she chose to play the negative role in this movie as
she found it interesting.
It is to mention, Juhi Chawla recently made another similar remark on Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Salman Khan saying that she and Madhuri Dixit have made the three Khans superstars. Well, Juhi was never known to be so outspoken but the way she has been making blunt remarks about her co-stars recently, seems the lady hasn't come out of her antagonistic role in Gulaab Gang.
