Juhi Chawla returns to Rakesh Roshan's cinema
By Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, Feb 19 (IANS) Juhi Chawla will be seen in a Rakesh Roshan film again, "Krazzy 4", which is scheduled for release April 14.
Her earlier venture with Roshan was in his ill-fated "Karobaar" in 2000, in which 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' was released, the story was stale. Anyway, Juhi is working with us again," Rakesh Roshan told IANS.
In "Krazzy 4", the actress plays a psychiatrist. The film is being directed by Raja Sen.
"Juhi plays a very important role of a psychiatrist. We needed someone mature. While all the guys - Arshad Warsi, Rajpal Yadav, Irrfan Khan and Suresh Menon - are funny, Juhi is very serious," said 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".
Not too many of our leading ladies get to play psychiatrists. Lately, starlet Pinky Harwani starred as a shrink whom the troubled Sammir Dattani was seeing in Vikram Bhatt's "Life Mein Kabhi Kabhie".
Almost her entire track was edited out.
