Juhi Chawla stunned with Rajev’s writing stintJanuary 22nd, 2012 - 5:10 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, Jan 22 (IANS) TV actor Rajev Paul has turned poet with his debut book “Mumbai Mohabbat aur Tanhai” and actress Juhi Chawla says she never thought he can write so well.
“And life is full of surprises! When Rajev Paul first told me he had written a book… A poetry book… I thought he was joking…,” Juhi posted on Twitter.
“Was very pleasantly surprised when I read his poems… They re really nice! Mumbai Mohabbat aur Tanhai is the title of Rajev’s book,” she added.
Rajev’s book which is a compilation of his poems was released last December.
However, the book grabbed headlines with one of his poems, “Uljha Sa Rehta Hoon”, which was used by the band Shadow to compose a song.
The song won the International IndieGo Award in four categories — Asian Champion of the Year 2012 (Special Jury award), Best Electro/Dance act, Best Pop Song and the best freaking act in the universe (Special jury award). The event happened Friday.
