Though she's danced in many films, dancing is one thing Juhi Chawla did not enjoy as a kid

She tells CS, “My mom wanted me to learn classical dancing andhad kept a tutor for me. However, I did not enjoy it at all. I would run away to my friend’s house to escape the routine.


My mom would hunt me down and take me back home for my training. This was one of the naughtiest things I did as a child. Otherwise, I was quite hardworking and did well in my studies.

I feel that we had such a carefree childhood, kids today have so many pressures whether it’s to excel in studies or just peer pressure for other things. We were quite blessed.”
