She doesn’t really feel the quantity her age stands at at present, and effectively, she doesn’t look that both. Juhi Chawla has a double celebration within the offing — she celebrates her 53rd birthday on November 13, and on the 14th, she ushers in Diwali.
As we start the dialog, she makes it clear that she is “completely not” a birthday individual.
“I don’t suppose there’s something thrilling, an excessive amount of fuss is made about birthdays. On the similar time, there are some things that I get pleasure from. I really feel very glad when my songs are performed on the radio on my birthday. I really feel that’s cool, it makes you are feeling you’ve achieved one thing, and right here it’s, you possibly can hear it. That’s my little pleasure,” she gushes.
In reality, whereas speaking to us, Chawla was capturing a video urging her well-wishers to not ship flowers on her big day. “Earlier, there was flowers, however that has modified to plant bushes as a substitute,” she provides.
However we’re certain that her household doesn’t comply with her needs for a low-key birthday. Chawla admits, “They do ask ‘What are we doing?’, and I say ‘Please do nothing, do me a favour’. They don’t hearken to me, one thing must be achieved. I wish to go fabulous pilgrimage collectively, like Kashi Vishwanath. We haven’t achieved that but. Perhaps we’ll have a good time it like that sooner or later.”
Ask if the age issue ever play on her thoughts, Chawla is fast to say, “Because the quantity retains rising, I feel this could’t be true, as a result of I’m not feeling any completely different from what I used to be. I don’t look that, and thank God for that. That’s what you’ve all the time heard different folks say earlier than you, however sure, you’re not rising any youthful. Then the great factor is no one on this planet is rising any youthful! (laughs)”
Diwali, this time round, might be rather a lot completely different. With Covid 19 taking part in spoilsport. We ask the actor how will she have a good time her birthday and Diwali each.
She tells us, “I used to be questioning this time. Fortunately, the lockdown occurred, and we woke as much as household celebrations, and being collectively, realising how comfy and joyful that’s to do. How we missed out on this stuff, and are usually not busy working after different folks and larger celebrations. This can be a good time… Diwali bhi hai, birthday bhi, let me name my prolonged household.”
