Such a joy: Juhi on reuniting with Rishi

A hit pair in the '90s, Juhi Chawla and Rishi Kapoor are back in Chalk N Duster.

Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawla were a very popular pair in the 1990s, having acted in the David Dhawan blockbuster Bol Radha Bol as well as films like Eena Meena Deeka and Saajan Ka Ghar.

They will be seen together again in this week’s release, Chalk N Duster, a film about the importance of teachers. Rishi has an extended cameo in the film’s climax, as a quiz-show host.

Juhi says it was a pleasure to reunite with her favourite co-star. “It was such a joy! Shooting the climax was so much fun. Fortunately in that sequence, the whole cast is present. So Shabanaji, Divya Dutta, Aarya Babbar, Rishiji and I were all present on the sets. We had a ball!”

The atmosphere on the sets was like a wonderful reunion, with Shabana, Divya, Rishi and Juhi recounting funny anecdotes from times past.

Juhi too fondly recalled the “old days” of shooting with Rishi: “I remember the table for his make-up would be set outside his van. A small transistor would be playing. We would watch his make-up dada painstakingly do the make-up, carefully defining Rishiji’s features. Then, 15 minutes later, Rishiji would lose patience and say, ‘Ho gaya?’ and pick up the sponge and rub it all over his face! All the make-up would be mixed up. It was hilarious!”
