Not too many cineastes would recall Juhi Chawla's presence in a Rakesh Roshan cinema. But nudge your memory, and you'll recall Juhi in Rakesh Roshan's ill-fasted Karobaar where she played Rishi Kapoor's wife who's tempted to spend a night with tycoon Anil Kapoor.
The remake of the Robert Redford-Demi Moore film An Indecent Proposal was a fiasco. "That's because the film got delayed. By the time Karobaar came out the story was stale. Anyway, Juhi is working with us again," says Rakesh Roshan.
The lovely actress last seen as the battered wife in Onir's Bas Ek Pal, has been cast as a psychiatrist in Rakesh Roshan's comedy Krazy 4 to be directed by Raja Sen.
"Juhi plays a very important role of a psychiatrist. We needed someone mature. While all the guys Arshad, Rajpal Yadav, Irrfan Khan and Suresh Menon are funny Juhi is very serious," says Rakesh Roshan.
This is Juhi's second role as a shrink in a comedy. She was given the thankless task of curing Govinda's mind in David Dhawan's Deewana Mastana.
