The two contemporaries did not work together in the past, both shinning in their respective careers, but years later Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla are set for an interesting face-off onscreen as the avenger and the villain in ‘Gulaab Gang’.
In her interviews, Juhi has said that the reason they probably did not work together was because there was lot of competition between actresses at that time. Madhuri, however, says she never thought of Juhi as a competitor and it was finally inspiring to work with her in the film, releasing on March 7.
“I never thought of her as my competitor. I never had any qualms about working with anyone. This is my thinking that we are actors not horses running towards one finish line. It is a creative field and we like certain roles and work with people we like. It is not that I have not worked in two-heroine projects earlier. I worked with Preity Zinta (‘Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke’), Aishwarya Rai (‘Devdas’) and Karisma Kapoor (‘Dil To Pagal Hai’),” Madhuri told.
Madhuri, 46, says it was inspiring to see Juhi at work in ‘Gulaab Gang’ and they have several very tight scenes together in the Soumik Sen directed movie. “It is wonderful that we did a film together finally. She is a good actress. It is inspiring to see another good actress work with you. I think our scenes are very tight and I would definitely love to work with her again,” says Madhuri.
