In over 25 years that she has dedicated to the Hindi film industry, JuhiChawla has witnessed several trends. But she believes the current generation of actors has too much pressure to handle as far as competition and visiblity are concerned.
“I thank god that I was there (at the peak of my career). I think there’s too much pressure now,” Juhi told.
“There are so many newcomers…Earlier once you made a mark, at least you had a chance of getting ahead. I think today you really have to stand your ground to be able to sustain.”
“There is so much noise around like size zero, public relations, marketing…I hope these girls are also enjoying themselves,” added the 46-year-old as she shared how she is ‘not really happy’ about this aspect of Hindi filmdom today.
During her prime, the entertainer charmed moviegoers with her million- dollar smile, innocence and charm. A former Miss India Universe, she made her cinematic debut with 1986 film ‘Sultanat’.
With a filmography of over 90, the actress believes a lot has changed about the heroine in Bollywood.
“I think the line between the heroine and item girls is blurred now. I liked my heroine to be the way she was…sweet or at least she used to blush sometimes. Now there is nothing! They are so open about everything. I am happy now I have enjoyed myself and now I see all this drama happening around,” she said.
