Juhi Chawla and Anil Kapoor
By: Supriya Chatterji.
Juhi Chawla had a successful career in bollywood films in the late 80s and 90s and did well opposite most of the actors of bollywood. She had a good combination with Anil Kapoor, too.
In Jhoot Bole Cowa Kate, directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, she played the role of the daughter of Amrish Puri. Anil Kapoor came to work in the house of Amrish Puri, so that he could contact his daughter. He told lies one after the other before Amrish Puri. He also asked his brother and his wife to tell lies before Amrish Puri.
Although the truth was unfolded and Anil Kapoor was rebuked by Amrish Puri, but he forgave him due to request of his wife. The songs that were picturised on Anil Kapoor and Juhi Chawla, became hits. Most of them were sung by Udit Narayan and composed by Anand Milind.
The film was the third version of Golmaal and Naram Garam where Utpal Dutt and amol Palekar played the leading roles. Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla, Amrish Puri and the other actors in the film tried to maintain the comedy impulse alive in the film in their own way and the film was successful.
Both of them did well in the film Deewana Mastana, where Govinda and came to Juhi Chawla for treatment. Anil Kapoor with the help of Johnny Lever tried out different ways to injure Govinda and all of their plans failed. The film was serio-comic in nature with funny instances at every point. The songs in the film were also successful.
Both of them also acted together in the film Salaam –e-ishq. It was a multi-starrer film with Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Akshay Khanna, John Abraham, Ayesha Takia, all doing well in their respective roles. The six couples were brought at the same place by fate and film was based on their relationship and the way in which each of them got connected with each other in course of time. The viewers expect both of them to act together in more films in future.
