Juhi returns to Rakesh Roshan's cinema


By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) Not too many cineastes would recall Juhi Chawla's presence in a Rakesh Roshan film. But nudge your memory, and you'll recall her in the director's ill-fasted "Karobaar" where she played Rishi Kapoor's wife who's tempted to spend a night with business tycoon Anil Kapoor.

The remake of the Robert Redford-Demi Moore starrer "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," Roshan told IANS.

The lovely actress last seen as a demure wife in Ganesh Acharya's "Swami", has been cast as psychiatrist in Roshan's comedy "Krazy 4" to be directed by Raja Sen.

"Juhi plays 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," added 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".

She will be also seen in Ravi Chopra's "Bhootnath".
