When Juhi missed her mom, cried before her wedding

Juhi said, “I was shooting for some of the really big films of my career, and I was supposed to get married. My mother had just passed a year ago. When the marriage date was coming close, I was thinking my mother is gone, whom I loved the most, and now my career will also go away. I didn’t know how to be happy about it. So, I broke down one day and I told my mother-in-law and she said, ‘It’s okay.’ Can you imagine your a mother-in-law doing it for you?”

When Juhi’s mother-in-law uninvited guests

She added, “Invitations had gone out to maybe 2000 people. She said, ‘Abhi nahi horahi hai (It’s not happening now)’. She convinced the family to not have the big wedding and I got married but it was at home with just the family and closest friends. So with just 80-90-100 people the wedding was done. Imagine your mother-in-law cancelling those invitations which had gone out all over the world. I was a Punjabi eating chicken. Of course, after one-two years that got changed. Jay made me a vegetarian.”
