Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla found megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s character dull in his debut fiction show ‘Yudh’.
The actress, who has been roped in as the brand ambassador for Sony Entertainment’s new general entertainment channel ‘Sony Pal’, said she did not like Big B’s character in the show.
“I saw one episode of ‘Yudh’ and during the show, appeared advertisements of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’. And he looked so dapper in that. I think I will watch KBC instead of the serial. I found his character dull and may be I don’t want to see him in that avatar,” Juhi said in an interview here.
Bachchan’s ‘Yudh’, was touted as one of the biggest shows on the small screen, but it evoked a lukewarm response from the audiences.
The 46-year-old actress, on her part, is open to the idea of working for television, if something exciting comes across.
“It (show) has to be something outstanding and not just any story. I would like to do a show where I can make people laugh and cry, something that adds value to one’s life,” she added.
The ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’ actress said she also does not mind judging reality shows.
“I don’t mind… let’s see what comes up. I had done one season of ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ and enjoyed it,” she added.
On her latest sting with ‘Sony Pal’, she said the channel aims at adding value to viewers’ lives besides entertaining them.
“The channel aims to entertain and uplift one’s thoughts.
I am happy that I am the brand ambassador and I value it. I told them to have a show with me. But as of now there is no show. May be in the near future, the channel might do a show with me,” she added.
While Juhi detests the typical ‘saas-bahu’ serials, shows like ‘Mahadev’, ‘Jodha Akbar’ and comedy serials impress her.
“I wonder how a petty issue is dragged for episodes. I don’t see all serials but some of them are really good. I like ‘Mahadev’, ‘Jodha Akbar’ and I thought they are very well written and produced,” she said.
