A couple of days back, a video of Salman Khan talking about Juhi Chawla‘s father rejecting his marriage proposal went viral on social media. The clip has Salman talking about how he was in awe of Juhi. In the video, Salman had said, “She’s a very sweet, adorable girl. I asked her father if she would let her get married to me. He refused.”
Now the actress has reacted to the viral video, and revealed how she once rejected a film with him because he was not ‘The Salman Khan’ when the offer came her way. Juhi also laughed off Salman’s marriage proposal video, and told News18, “Back in the day, when I had just started out in my career, and when Salman was not THE Salman Khan, a film had come my way that had him in the lead actor. In fact, I didn’t know anyone properly back then – not him, not Aamir (Khan) or anyone else in the industry. Incidentally, I couldn’t do the film because of some issue.”

For the unversed, the two actors started their career in Bollywood almost around the same time. Juhi made her debut with the 1988 film ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’, and Salman entered the Hindi film industry with 1988 film ‘Biwi Ho To Aisi’. The two have not shared the screen ever, except for Salman’s cameo in Juhi’s film ‘Deewana Mastana’, which also starred Anil Kapoor and Govinda.
Sharing how Salman taunts her to this day, Juhi added, “And to this day, he doesn’t leave one chance to remind me of it! ‘You didn’t do the film with me,’ he keeps saying. We hardly worked on films together but we did a lot of stage shows. He had a cameo in ‘Deewana Mastana’.”
Juhi was last seen in the 2022 film ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’ along with Rishi Kapoor. Salman, on the other hand, will next be seen in ‘Kisi Ka Bhai Kisi Ki Jaan’, which hits the theatres on April 21.
