Mumbai: Juhi Chawla says there is “no strain” in her friendship with Shah Rukh Khan and that the superstar would be there for her whenever she needs him.
There have been reports of the two no longer being good friends. But, Juhi insists their friendship is strong, contrary to reports.
“It (friendship) is not strained or anything. With our growing lives, schedules we get busy. Like today Madhuri Dixit and I are working for a film because our work has brought us together. Then she will be busy with ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ and I will be busy with my work. How and when we will meet next we don’t know,” Juhi told us.
“If I need something and I call Shah Rukh, I know I will get through him in an instant but I will not trouble him, because I know he is very busy, so I really need not take his time,” she said.
Juhi wonders why their friendship is questioned often.
“I feel why it should be? I think it should be left to individuals to decide whether they get along or not, whether there is a connect more than work or not, then you can be friends,” she said.
The actress does not feel upset about the reported growing animosity between her and Shah Rukh.
“I feel why it should be said (reported this way). There are friendships and there should be friendships among all,” she said.
Apparently, the friction between Juhi and Shah Rukh started when her brother Bobby was replaced with Venky Mysore as the CEO of Red Chillies, without informing the actress.
