Actress Juhi Chawla says recent Bollywood films had begun to worry her about the lost charm and innocence, but Abhishek Bachchan-starrer clean film "Bol Bachchan" has restored her faith.

"Just watched 'Bol Bachchan' at a movie theatre in Kampala. Had a good laugh! The movie is completely cracked! Ajay Devgn and Abhishek Bachchan were hilarious. Everyone in the movie was fun," tweeted Juhi.

"And what I liked about it most... it was a clean film! The girls skirts were long... The necklines high... No nonsense unnecessary kissing or sleeping around... Call me old fashioned but I was beginning to get worried about Hindi films. Wanting to be so much like Hollywood films... losing their charm, originality, innocence," added the 44-year-old, whose popular films include "Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak", "Darr" and "Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Kee".

    I totally agree with juhi. Sometimes I cannot see some movies with my cousins.

    It hard to watch a good hindi film without forwarding scenes or songs due to content that can't be watched with family.

    Defo miss the good old Hum Saath Saath Hain, K3G, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani and actors like her self or the OLD Salman and SRK.

    Agree with you so much Juhi and so glad she has spoken these words. Now we never go out to films as we cannot go as family - it is always too embarrassing! Also in my house we are depending on telly serials. Juhi has the perfect beautiful voice for Ma Yashoda and she was wonderful also as Sita in Ramayan animated film.

    @Shamima - Yes I think so too that Salman movies are more family friendly. For example like the movie Ready, Bodyguard are really good.
    But the others movies have lost the charm and innocence.

    Wow I'm so happy that a former bollywood such as Juhi Chawla agrees with my thoughts that bollywood films have no longer got the charm and the innoncense and aren't family friendly no matter how many times they say it is, it clearly isn't. I mean I'm only 17 and I feel so embarrassed and ashamed to watch bollywood films from this era and I was even having this convo with my brother how much bollywood has changed and how they're trying to copy Hollywood films I mean we rarely get to see a good family film but being salmon khan fans (the whole family) I'm not trying to be biased but I do think his films are family friendly and there a few more actors but hopefully they would realise that bollywood has lost it's charm and will try to restore it

    I 100% agree with Juhi, today's bollywood films have lost the innocence of Indian Cinemas.

    Todays movie has just become too much of skin showing, sleeping and stuff. Actress are just being too skinny these days.

    I wish there was time turner to bring the 90s era back with the melodies songs. Grew up watching Juhil in Hum Hai Rai Pyar hai being a very bubbly person. Really miss watching you in movies along with many actress like Madhuri, Sridevi, Urmila, Kajol and Karisma.
