A former Miss India, Juhi Chawla achieved fame after being cast opposite Aamir Khan in his debut film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. She and Aamir co-starred in a number of films - not all successful.
Juhi is also credited as being one of the leading actresses who was gracious to work with Shahrukh Khan when he had just entered the industry. Their on-screen pairing resulted in an off-screen business partnership.
Juhi is known as one of the rare actresses who has an excellent sense of comic timing. Since her marriage to industrialist Jai Mehta, she has been more selective of the films she works in and will next appear in Bhootnath with Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan.
Juhi has two children, Jhanvi and Arjun.
