Juhi and Aamir once were one of the most loved on-screen pairs in Bollywood. They have, in fact, done many hit movies together like Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Tum Mere Ho, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke and Ishq. However, as many of you out there would know, the duo used to share a love-hate relationship.
Recently, an interesting throwback interview of Juhi Chawla by Stardust was unearthed, where the former Miss India had admitted that she once revealed to media a secret about Aamir, and how the latter denied the truth leaving her all embarrassed. We bring you here all that she had said in that interview, and about her love-hate relationship with Mr. Perfectionist.
In the interview, when Juhi was asked about the whole incident and how she ended up revealing Aamir’s secret, she said:
“It’s just that there was this very close journalist friend of mine, I’ve known him since college, who asked me whether I had had an affair and was attracted to Aamir during Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. So, just to defend myself, I said how could I when the boy was happily married and a father of two.”
Aamir denied everything right in front of her and she almost died of embarrassment.
“I meant it as a joke. How was I to know that the journalist would take me seriously and ask Aamir about it in front of me? I almost died of embarrassment as Aamir denied everything. This was much before Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak was released.”
When Aamir denied everything and left her embarrassed, Juhi took a pot-shot at Aamir by saying:
“Now, of course, Aamir has decided to become more honest like me and go clean about everything. After all, I am a very, very honest person and a staunch Gandhian when it suits me. I believe in the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and I wish Aamir would do so too. Now please start searching for his two kids.”
However, when asked about her love-hate relationship with Aamir, Juhi denied having any cold war with the actor and she had said,
“Hey man, don’t take our bitching and fooling about all that seriously. Aamir and I get along like a house on fire. We have a fantastic rapport with each other. After all, when you’re as close as Aamir and I are, it is almost like a family affair. And when you’re familiar then you have the right to fool about with each other. We never miss an opportunity to attack each other verbally and we’re always making cracks at each other.”
Well, it seems like Juhi Chawla and Aamir Khan are still great friends and maintain a fantastic rapport with each other as back in those days.
