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.

Act­ing hogi, nahi hogi pata nahi. But if you have a se­cured in­vest­ment, you know that you won’t atleast be with­out money in the fu­ture
