I'm not joining politics, won't be able to connect: Juhi Chawla

August 01, 2012 14:55 IST
Amidst rumours of her joining politics, actress Juhi Chawla has cleared the air saying she neither intends to contest an election nor is interested in joining politics.

There was a buzz that Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was mulling over launching Juhi as a Bharatiya Janata Party candidate in the Gujarat Assembly elections scheduled in December this year, fielding her against Congress member of Legislative Assembly Arjun Modhwadia.

"I am in another space. I don't think I will be able to connect with them. I am not joining politics. I don't intend to contest election. I am happy to be back to doing normal things, be it films or other work," Juhi told PTI.


over such rumours, she said, "I was in Uganda holidaying with family when I got to know about this. I was totally away, cut out off from things happening here (India). There was no idea of me joining politics. All I can say is Jay's (Juhi's husband) family has a commendable respect in Porbandar."

Meanwhile, Juhi is looking forward to the release of India's first animated stereoscopic feature film Krishna Aur Kans. The 44-year-old

actress has done the voiceover of Krishna's mother Yashoda in the film.

Krishna Aur Kans

has been written by Kamlesh Pandey and directed by Vikram Veturi.
