When Juhi Chawla Refused To Work With ‘Gareeb’ Manoj Bajpayee In A 2016 Movie & Throw Up An Uproar Insisting To Be Replaced By Rishi Kapoor; Here’s What Happened!
Juhi Chawla was one of the most popular actresses of the 90s. She is known for her versatility, beauty, and acting skills, which have made her a favorite in the hearts of the audience. Although he worked with many stars, he once refused to work with Manoj Bajpayee.
Bajpayee is a popular Indian actor known for his unique performances in mainstream and independent films. Back in 2016, the National award-winning actor was the first choice for the role of quizmaster in Chalk N Duster.
Manoj Bajpayee, who had arrived early in the first day’s match, was unexpectedly dismissed, thanks to Juhi Chawla. After learning that Manoj has been appointed as the quizmaster, Juhi complained and allegedly created a ruckus, insisting to replace him, according to a report by SpotboyE.
A source told the publication at the time, “Juhi said she looked too poor to take the part of the quizmaster. She felt she should find a talent to play the role.”
Director Jayant Gilatar tried to persuade him to reconsider the situation, but the actor remained adamant. Left with no other option, the director and producer met their demands. Manoj was quickly replaced, and the role went to Rishi Kapoor who is known as “very handsome”.
Manoj Bajpayee did not comment at that time. As for Juhi Chawla, it seems she has put aside her earlier days working with Manoj when she happily played the female lead opposite him in Swami.
It is worth noting that Chalk n Duster researches the private education industry in India. The 2016 film examines the relationship between teachers and students, highlighting the challenges that teachers and students face in the rapidly evolving world of education.
Upon its release, the film received mixed reviews from critics. However, it received taxes from Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Bihar.
