Juhi invests in more than films
Actor Juhi Chawla (right) may have always had a secure acting career, but this did not stop her and her husband, industrialist Jay Mehta, from keeping a backup plan and investing in a team in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The 47-year-old feels that one must diversify to secure their future.
“One does like to invest in one thing or the other ... everyone wants to diversify. Acting hogi, nahi hogi pata nahi (there is no certainty whether I will act in the future or not). But if you have a secured investment, you know that you won’t atleast be without money in the future,” says Juhi, who also co-owns a production house with actor Shah Rukh Khan.
Working on projects outside the film domain never distracted the 47-year-old actor, who has given multiple blockbusters to the film industry.
“Now film projects come to me once in a while. I have gaps in my work. But when I take up work, I put everything else aside. For me, the top priority is my family and work, and everything else is secondary. That’s what keeps me going. I must never take for granted what I do on the sets. When I am on the sets, I am totally on the sets,” says Juhi.
