Directed by David Dhawan Mr and Mrs Khiladi, starring Juhi Chawla and Akshay Kumar, turned 25 on Sunday. On that occasion, Juhi shared a sweet anecdote from the shoot where Akshay saved her from twisting her already injured leg.
In a series of tweets, the actress mentioned how she filmed in the corset for the first 20 days due to a torn ligament. She added that the two would go to physical therapy after filming as the director also had knee problems. However, while filming the song Hum Total Fida Tumpe, Juhi slipped on the wet grass and fell. “And in a jiffy, and I mean in a jiffy..! Akshay lay next to me and saved me from twisting my leg again!!” the actor wrote.
Juhi Chawla also recalled how Kader Khan entertained the cast and crew with “interesting anecdotes and behind-the-scenes stories” between takes. Juhi added that these are good memories and she is grateful for them.
