Impromptu performances not Juhi`s cup of tea

Mumbai: Juhi Chawla flatly refused when she was asked to sing a line or two for the audience at a recent TV awards function.

Juhi, who hosts chat show ‘Badmash Company’ on Colors, was at the channel`s first edition of Golden Petal Awards in Mumbai earlier this week when host Sajid Khan asked her to sing for the audience. But Juhi, who was trained in classical singing by Pandit Pandharinath Kolhapure, flatly refused.

Sajid cajoled her a lot, but she asked him to "Drop it"!

"They (organisers) didn`t even tell me, I`ve to come and sing here," Juhi said as she tried to keep the mike away. But her words were quite audible.

Juhi, looking resplendent in a maroon and gold suit, was on stage to give away a few awards and walked off stage soon after. Witty host Sajid couldn`t help but say: "Thank god, we have a good editor! And this can be snapped off. I was asked to create moments, so I was just trying to do that."
