Cool looking youngsters in trendy outfits dance to the tunes of a rap song in a misty disc. Amidst the fun, a tussle between two guys turns the raucous noise into grave silence. Enters a sari- clad woman in green. Her hair tied up with make- up and sindoor applied to perfection. She desperately intervenes and impedes the fight.
Cut!!!! announces the director. The woman turns and walks towards me with a smile. "We have been shooting since morning. It's hectic but I am enjoying every bit of it," she dimples.
Adulation, popularity and the best patni award at the Star Parivaar honours hasn't induced an iota of pride in this girl who always dreamt of becoming an actress. With Kumkum, her dreams are almost fulfilled.
The Ujjain born Juhi says she nurtured the dream of becoming an
actress ever since she remembers. "Acting was a growing passion within me. I
didn't want to be anything but an actress," she
"Breaking an image can be tough as you are identified with that character. It was a bigger challenge for me to break through the Muslim girl image and imbibe the image of a Hindu bahu. None of us expected the serial to become so popular. Although Kumkum is an afternoon sitcom, the best patni award was least expected. Kumkum gave me the identity of a versatile actress," she beams.
"In fact, I relate to Chanda. She is closer to my heart. I have always played these sacrificing, pain-filled characters but while playing Chanda, I could show the lighter side to my acting, which was a refreshing change. She is extremely blunt and transparent and that's how I am. Also, it gave me an opportunity to showcase my talent in a different way."
So, is the serial going 20 years ahead?
"I hope it doesn't," she shudders. "I don't wish to play a mother when my onscreen daughter would be just my age. Right now, there are no such plans as there is enough of a story."
Talk about falling in love with your co-star, and pat comes her reply. "I share a colossal friendship with all my co-stars. Right now, I am enjoying my work and my success. Marriage can wait.
But I wish to fall in love with someone who is sensitive and makes me laugh. He should also have a wicked smile and expressive eyes."
