gorgeous beauty of tinsel town makes a rare appearance on Television in
Hats Off Production's 'Baa Bahu Aur Baby'. Here is the actress in
You are appearing in a television show for the first time in Baa Bahu Aur Baby. How was your experience on the show?
liked the Thakkar family a lot and I enjoyed myself in their company. I
was thrilled to see that the whole cast stands united as one family.
They are all such good
actors and it was easy working with them. I have never worked on
television before, but I will remember and cherish this day for a very
Was working in Bhootnath more exciting than working in Baa Bahu Aur Baby?
Bahu Aur Baby has been an exciting experience because there is such a
big family who’ve been together for such a long time. I wouldn’t like
to choose one over the other, but all I can say is that the viewers who
watch Baa Bahu Aur Baby are very attached to the Thakkar family and are
supremely fond of the show.
Do the kids of Baa Bahu Aur Baby remind you of the ones in Bhootnath?
just the kids of the house, but the ambience, the spirit of
togetherness, the ease, no-attitude behaviour, chemistry between the
actors, on spot improvisation etc, everything reminds me of Bhootnath.
The film also had a huge set of a house where 50 to 60% of the film was
shot. For almost two months, we have been going on the sets daily, and
by the time we came to the end of the schedule, the entire unit
was like one big family and
going to the sets felt like going from your home to another home. The
same applies to the set here. Since there is such a big house and such
a big family, you start thinking of it as a part of you...
Which is your favourite Baa Bahu Aur Baby character and why?
have many favorites. One of course is Gattu because he is very unique
and his character is very distinct. Deven is a magnificent actor and
does a brilliant job as Gattu. I, infact, like most of the actors on
this show and its unfair for me to choose one over the other. I like
the babus of the family, Leelaben, Charubalaben etc. Each character is different and very well defined. I especially like baa.
She is a very strong-willed woman and a very powerful character. She is
the head of the family, holds such a large responsibility on her
shoulders and yet manages the house and the relationships between
family members so beautifully.
What do you like about the show and are there any similarities with Bhootnath?
like Baa Bahu Aur Baby since it’s a family show and things here are not
over dramatized. The incidents and nuances are so similar to our real
lives and most of the incidences we see here often happen in our own
homes. Our film, Bhootnath is also quite the same. It is a movie that
families would like to see. I think just as family audience form the
crux for Baa Bahu Aur Baby, so will they for Bhootnath.
Juhi Chawla can be seen in Baa Bahu Aur Baby on Saturday, April 12 at 9.30 pm only on STAR Plus
