New Delhi, May 20 (IANS) Vibrant and cheerful film actor Juhi Chawla loves being in superstar Shah Rukh Khan's company as he gives her great joy.

On being asked whether she prefers Shah Rukh as a friend, as a co-actor or as a business partner, Juhi flashed her million- dollar smile and replied: 'I like Shah Rukh everywhere!

'He is a sharp person and great fun to be with. He is great in whatever he does and, yes, he is truly a joy.' Juhi was here last week to launch the 'Bhootnath' collection for Biba, a fashion retail outlet.

Besides acting, it is her involvement in the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches that sets her pulse racing.

Juhi, who is co-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) team along with Shah Rukh, said: 'IPL is really exciting but it is also stressful for me.'

Dressed in a simple kurti and pants with no accessories, Juhi spoke about her recently released film 'Bhootnath'. The initial response to the film has not been good, but Juhi asserted that it was being appreciated the world over.

'I am so happy that the film is being appreciated. I had a great time working with the child (Aman Siddiqui) and Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) and it is a special film for me,' she said.

'Bhootnath' is a story based on the relationship of a child with his deceased grandfather, a kind ghost whom the child gradually befriends. Juhi and Shah Rukh play Aman's parents in the film.

Since the film was centred on Amitabh and Aman, didn't she feel overshadowed?

'I have been asked about this many times but, frankly, I could neither have played the ghost nor the child! So there is nothing like being overshadowed in the film.

'I feel that as long as we play our given parts well, we are noticed and our work is also appreciated,' Juhi said.

Talking about her future projects, Juhi said she was playing the role of a fortune-teller in Aziz Mirza's 'Kismet Konnection'. 'It's a small role but a very different one,' she said.
