New Delhi, Aug 29 (IANS) After doing a full-fledged role in director Vivek Sharma’s “Bhoothnath” that did not fare well at the box office, Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla has agreed to play a cameo in his next project titled “Kal Kisne Dekha”.“I am very moved by Juhi’s lovely gesture. I wanted a Bollywood star to do a cameo in ‘Kal Kisne Dekha’. I asked Juhi and she has now agreed to it. I had told her at the time of ‘Bhoothnath’ that I wanted her to work in all my films,” Sharma was quoted as saying in a press statement.
Juhi took the director by surprise when she landed on the sets of the film Wednesday. Incidentally, it was also Sharma’s birthday.
“It was the best birthday gift,” Sharma said.
“Kal Kisne Dekha”, being co-produced by Reliance Entertainment’s Big Pictures and Vashu Bhagnani, is launching fresh faces.
It will be the launch pad for Bhagnani’s son Jackky. He will be sharing screen space with Rishi Kapoor, Archana Puran Singh and now Juhi.
