In a recent visit to the set of the Zee Comedy Show, Juhi Chawla talked about her husband Jay Mehta and opened up about how she met him. The actress was accompanied by actor Chunky Pandey.
Farah Khan Kunder, an Indian director, film producer, and actress, posted a short clip on her Instagram stories featuring Gaurav Dubey and Juhi Chawla. At the beginning of the clip, Dubey was singing ‘Mumbai Se Gai Puna’ from Juhi’s film Hum Hain Rahi Pyaar Ke, and he asked Juhi, “Gujarat to aya hi nahi, fir Jay Mehta kaha se mile? (There is no mention of Gujarat, how did you meet Jay Mehta)?”
The actress smiled after hearing the question and replied, “Galti se mil gae (Found him by mistake).” Juhi shared a video clip from the episode on Instagram, which gives a glimpse at her entrance alongside Farah Khan, with the song Mere Mehboob Mere Sanam playing in the background. In the clip, Juhi was wearing a dark-blue gown, she carried a white dupatta as well, and she had let her hair flow in curls.
In 1996, the actress married businessman Jay Mehta in a secret ceremony. During an interview in 2020 with Rajeev Masand, Juhi said that they held a secret ceremony because back then no one had internet, and not every phone came with a camera. The actress added that she was just established as an actress and was doing well. She said that she was afraid of losing her career when she met Jay, she wanted to carry on and the marriage seemed midway.
