 The show today completed 20 years and in its time was one of the most iconic shows of television, and that too in the afternoon slot.  Juhi shares,



“My audience knows me by my name because of the varied work I have done but I know even now when I meet people they tell me they loved seeing me as Kumkum.  I got teary eyed today as I wrote something on my social media to my digital family and I still get goosebumps when I think about Kumkum.  For me the show, the characters and everything about it is beautiful.  In fact I still say that it was one of the most progressive shows Indian television has seen, the remarriage of a widow and so many other aspects which are usually considered taboo in our society!”



Ask her about her camaraderie with Hussain and she says,


“Oh we are like Tom and Jerry!  He was a fabulous costar and someone who is a treat to work with.  We would always be joking around when we were working and that’s what made work fun!”

On the personal front Juhi has been a single parent to her 9 year old daughter Samairra and her content with her daughter on social media is loved by fans.


Ask Juhi about when we will see her back on screen and she says,


“Soon!  There are a lot of offers that keep coming in but I take my time because I want to take up something that truly challenges me!  Being away from my child and going on sets and having less time with her is never easy and hence unless its something that really excites me as an actor, I wouldn’t jump on the bandwagon.”
