Here’s how Shah Rukh Khan stood by Juhi Chawla after her mother passed away
Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla together have given us superhit films like ‘Yes Boss’, ‘Darr’, ‘Ram Jaane’, ‘Duplicate’ and many more. Professional relationships that span for a long time, tend to influence personal equations too, and theirs was no exception. And when Juhi was put through a critical time after her mother’s sudden death, SRK came forward to lend her his shoulder.
The actress went down the memory lane and shared various little known moments, in an interview. She went on to tell us how her mother’s sudden death shook us, while she was filming for the film in Prague.
“I lost my mother while shooting for ‘Duplicate’. We had reached Prague and it was Karan’s (Johar) birthday the next day, so my mother and I bought a gift for him. Next morning, before I went for the shoot, she left for a walk and never came back. It was very traumatic because just a day before we had reached there and three days later after she met with an accident, we were bringing her back in a coffin. It was devastating for me,” Juhi said.
“He was the person who consoled me, as he had seen his parents pass away before that and knew the pain of losing a parent. So, he was trying to make me laugh and forget things,” she added.
For those who remember, Juhi’s late bother Bobby Chawla was a part of SRK’s Kolkata Knight Riders administration. However, due to prolonged illness, he was unable to continue working at his best form. This apparently gave birth to differences between Juhi and SRK. After 4 years of ailment, Bobby took his last breath.
We know not if the two are back to being friends. But we hope they’re cherishing today’s date in their own ways! 🙂
