I am not going anywhere, says Juhi Chawla
Mumbai, Sep 3, Actress Juhi Chawla, who has given voiceover for Sita’s character in 3D animation film “Ramayana – The Epic”, said she hasn’t quit the film industry and will soon make an appearance in director Onir’s “I AM”.
“There may be gaps in between, but I am not going anywhere. I have a film called ‘I Am’. It has four short stories and in one of the short stories called ‘Medha’, Manisha and I are playing the lead. It’s Onir’s film,” Juhi told IANS. This will be her third film with Onir after “My Brother… Nikhil” (2005) and “Bas Ek Pal”(2006).
The actress was speaking at the unveiling of the first look of “Ramayana – The Epic” Thursday.
Talking about her experience, Juhi said it was her first animation film and she didn’t find it difficult to emote Sita’s character.
“I wouldn’t say it was difficult. Since I didn’t have any visual to help me, so I had to imagine the scene. Some scenes which I found really difficult were when Sita was in captivity of Ravan and had broken down while waiting for Ram,” said the former Miss India.
In Hollywood, most of big stars give voiceover in animation movies. Juhi maintains that as not many animation films are being made in India, so actors lending voice to them is not in vogue yet.
“We haven’t done it so far and also animation movies have come recently in our country. I will not be surprised to know that lot of people are willing to lend their voice. All the A-list stars abroad do it and it is considered ‘the thing’ to do,” said Juhi.
