JUHI IN NEWS
It is probably the first time that we’ll see yesteryear rivals Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla sharing space together on the big screen and with the way things are going, it might probably be the last. The two actresses, who are set to appear in director Soumik Sen’s film, Gulab Gang, don’t seem to be getting along too well. Sources say that Juhi Chawla recently staged a walk out of the film’s set citing non payment of dues as the issue. However, this incident has led to speculation that Juhi has been throwing tantrums because she feels insecure around Madhuri. Come to think of it, it was Madhuri who had consistently denied Juhi the top actress spot all through the 90’s. The film that is based on the life of social activist, Sampat Pal has Madhuri enacting the lead role and Juhi Chawla playing a cameo with negative shades. With forty percent of the film complete, we hope the ladies put their differences aside and work toward giving their fans a treat.
