SRK on his ladies: Juhi – Best comic timing
Iâ€™ve been in love with her since Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. I really believe Iâ€™m blessed to have worked with her. She thinks Iâ€™m a fluke. She calls me Lucky Ali. She says youâ€™re just lucky, man. Till date she tells me Iâ€™m the biggest fluke in the history of Indian cinema. â€œYou have nothing going for you,â€�? she says.
When it comes to comic actors I would say Peter Sellers, Steve Martin, Jim Carrey. And among the greatest comic timing actors Iâ€™ve ever seen or ever worked with would be Juhi Chawla. Even now when I have to do a comedy scene, she is my reference point. Can I do it like Juhi? How would she have done it?
The last film I did with her was One Two Ka Four. I saw that film recently on television. Sheâ€™s so funny man. I keep harping on her comic timing because I believe that for an actor to be great they have to be great at comedy. So that way Juhi is one of the finest, finest actors. But I feel Juhi didnâ€™t get enough people to exploit her talent. Just like Amitji (Amitabh Bachcan). She has such a range as an actress. Watch her in Teen Deewarein, sheâ€™s awesome.
On the personal level, Iâ€™m so close to her itâ€™s like family. The love I feel for her is something I canâ€™t describe. I love her kids Jahnvi and Arjun. And my whole point in life is that they should grow up thinking Iâ€™m their favourite uncle. Itâ€™s my duty to completely spoil them. Sheâ€™s a fantastic mother, a little strict. So I feel itâ€™s my duty to spoil both of them. When I say Iâ€™ll make her children rebel against her, she gets disturbed. But I love being with her and her children. We even plan our holidays together. Itâ€™s one family I wish every happiness.
Theyâ€™re my extended family. So at a personal level, itâ€™s like talking about my own household.
