New Delhi: She lit up the screens, whenever she smiled—the original 'bubbly' girl of Bollywood, Juhi Chawla celebrates her birthday today. The actress, who made a hit on screen jodi with Aamir Khan in 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak' (QSQT), became a household name after its success. Although she made her debut in Mukul S. Anand's 'Sultanat' in 1986, it was 'QSQT' which got her all the recognition.
Former beauty queen, Juhi Chawla won two Filmfare awards in her career spanning more than a decade. She has worked in several regional films including Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Punjabi to name a few. Juhi ruled the Tinsel town for several years, before choosing to settle down in life. She was loved by the audience for her performance in 'Darr', 'Yes Boss', 'Ishq' and 'Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke'.
Her beautiful on screen chemistry with long time friend Shah Rukh Khan was liked by her fans from 'Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman' days. The two went on to become the thickest of friends in Bollywood, and they have even turned business partners with IPL team Kolkata Knightriders.
Juhi was last seen in 'Gulaab Gang' alongside Madhuri Dixit Nene (her one time arch-rical). She performed her grey character in the movie brilliantly and was loved by her fans and critics alike. Juhi is a perfect idol, who has managed to strike the right balance between family life and professional life. She is blessed with two kids—Jhanvi Mehta and Arjun Mehta with husband Jai Mehta. On turning 47 today, we would like to wish her a very happy birthday.
