Fast Facts You Need To Know

In 2016, she starred as the main protagonist in the woman-centric drama Chalk n Duster with Shabana Azmi. The film received positive to mixed reviews from critics and Chawla’s performance was appreciated. In a critical review for The Hindu, Namrata Joshi noted “Azmi and Chawla who, with their dignified presence and easy camaraderie stop you from heading to the exit doo.” Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times liked the film for its “well told ethics versus greed story” and mentioned Chawla as “heartwarming”. In 2017, she played an Indian defence minister in the Alt Balaji web series The Test Case.

2014

After appearing in offbeat films and occasionally playing guest roles throughout the decade, Chawla made a full-fledged comeback in 2014 with Gulaab Gang alongside her once arch-rival Madhuri Dixit. Chawla and Dixit played ruthless political rivals, and this was the first time in Chawla’s career that she played an antagonist. Her negative role of Sumitra was widely appreciated and her performance earned rave reviews. Shubhra Gupta of The financial Times described her character as “the sort of politician that men have played for ever: hungry for power, will stop at nothing, not even murder and mayhem. She rules with an iron fist and a sneer.” Hindustan Times wrote, “An effective hero needs a larger-than-life villain. In this case, it is Juhi Chawla who marries her sister to a rapist and apparently killed her husband to get political power. Like most corrupt politicians we see onscreen, she is an opportunist who lusts for power. It speaks well about her acting prowess that we come to hate the otherwise effervescent Juhi in this film.” Anupama Chopra wrote, “Her perverse wickedness is the best part of the film”, but called it a “a one-note character”. Rajeev Masand called her “terrific” in the part and concluded a scathing review of the film asserting, “if you must watch this film, watch it for Juhi Chawla’s inspired performance.” She received a second Filmfare nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The same year she also appeared with Helen Mirren and Om Puri in a guest role in the Steven Spielberg-produced Hollywood film The Hundred Foot Journey.

For her performance, Chawla was awarded the Best Actress award at the 13th London Asian Film Festival and Award for Excellence in Hindi Cinema at the Asiavision Movie Awards. Her performance also earned her a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. Rajeev Masand wrote, “Juhi Chawla is a portrait of suppressed vulnerability as she confronts her feelings about an old home and an old friend.” Chawla next starred in the action comedy Son of Sardaar (2012) opposite Ajay Devgn, which was poorly received by critics. Live Mint called it “the worst portrayal of Punjabiyat in Hindi cinema”, although it referred to her part as “the only unique role in the film” and further noted, “An actor with proven talent for comedy, Chawla makes Pammi, her character, pathetic as well as feisty.” The film earned ₹ 169.98 crore (US$24 million) worldwide.

Premankur Biswas of First Post wrote in a retrospective review, “Juhi Chawla, with her flouncy ghagra and passive but assertive demeanor was an early predecessor to the sexually liberated Bollywood heroines of today.
