Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla, who was earlier seen as a judge on dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, will now host Badmaash Company, a children's chat show, scheduled to go live on Colors Sep 17.
The bubbly and vivacious 43-year old actresss Juhi Chawla has taken unto the idiot box after essaying many memorable roles on the big screen.
Speaking of the show Badmaash Company, Juhi Chawla remarked, “In this show, the kids are not told what to say and what not to say; so sometimes what they say is so amusing. So I really enjoyed it. But at the same time, it was challenging because some kids are shy, so you need to get out the fun moments out of them, that's difficult because I needed to keep the conversations going."
Juhi, who is remembered best for her hit films Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Bol Radha Bol, Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke, Daraar and Yes Boss said that being a mother of two kids helped her handle the children on the show. Juhi has two children - Jhanvi, 10, and Arjun, 8.
Speaking in an interview with a leading newspaper, Juhi Chawla spoke of her decision to enter the small screen. Juhi said, "The fact that TV gives me life beyond films is what I find very interesting. It keeps you in circulation. In earlier days, for an actress, it was the silver screen and after that nothing because there were no avenues. Today at least we are in a world where there are avenues, where you can enjoy yourself, still being an actor, still being a celebrity but lending yourself in other ways."
