Rishi Kapoor shouted at Juhi Chawla on the sets of ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’, the actress stopped speaking due to fear

Juhi Chawla and Rishi Kapoor, who worked together in a number of films since they came together in the 1992 film ‘Bol Radha Bol’. Recently, the two came together again for the film ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’. The film, which is gearing up for a direct-to-OTT release, is Rishi Kapoor’s last film. The actor died in 2020 after filming a major part of it and Paresh Rawal played that role for the rest of the film.

Juhi recently revealed the experience of working with Rishi Kapoor in her last film and said that the film was “very funny but at the same time heart breaking”. When asked about the fondest memory of the late actor, Juhi recalled that there are many such memories throughout her career, which are difficult to reconcile.

Juhi further recalled working with Rishi on the sets of Sharmaji Namkeen. He told, “He always scolded me on the sets, always. When he started scolding me, I started laughing. It was great fun working with him. Pyaar se scold him.” He further recalled an incident where Rishi shouted at him for looking at the director’s monitor.

She said, “Chintu ji was spontaneous and sparkling when the scenes were going on on the sets and I was standing in front of him and battling my take. I knew what was happening inside me. I was like, ‘Chintu ji’ Ji has such good shots. Not good if I don’t come. So, Chintuji used to say- ‘Monitor is not for actors. Why are you behaving like an unsafe actress? Hitesh, why do you allow him to watch the monitor’ are giving.’ But I still went and looked at the monitor. I loved it all. Had a lot of fun.”
