Bollywood star Juhi Chawla has acted in quite a few Kannada films in her long career including Premaloka and Ranadheera. She was last seen in Ramesh Aravindâ€™s 100th film Pushpaka Vimana in which she appeared in a song, sharing screen space with its lead actor.
And once again the actor has bagged a role in a Kannada film. Yes, she will be seen in an extended cameo in the movie Very Good 10 / 10. According to sources, Juhi will be playing the role of a music teacher in the film, which will be directed by writer-actor Yaswanth Sardeshpande. Incidentally, Juhi was last seen as a teacher in the Kannada film Chalk N Duster that released last year.
Speaking about her role as a music teacher, the actor said that she is proficient in music, as she had learnt the art at the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan in London with Pandit Vishwa Prakash teaching her and on return to India, under the guidance of actor Padmini Kolhapuriâ€™s father.
While Very Good 10 / 10 will have the actor in an extended cameo, she will also feature in two songs. Being a childrenâ€™s film, director Yashwanth Sardeshpande had conducted a month-long audition from April 17 to May 20 in which several kids took part. The kids were selected for various roles in the movie, say sources.
V Manohar will be composing the tunes for Very Good 10 / 10 and Master Abhinav Bhat and Baby Aditi along with others will be rendering the songs. While the film will be made in Kannada, plans are on to have it dubbed in English and Hindi. The project is being bankrolled by Ramanath Kotiyan.
On taking up the role in the movie, Juhi said that it is a light-hearted kidsâ€™ film, which prompted her to sign on the dotted line.
