NEW DELHI - Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla has come on board for filmmaker Onir’s “I Am” series as an associate producer along with her husband Jai Mehta and two of her friends.
She also features in one of the four short films in the series.
“Let me give you the most wonderful news possible for ‘I Am’…Juhi joins in as associate producer to release ‘I Am’. She was so excited after seeing ‘I Am’ that Juhi along with husband Jai Mehta, and friends Sangeeta and Anish Modi has joined in as associate producers (sic),” Onir posted on his Twitter page Wednesday.
“I Am” is a series of four short films, each of which is 20-25 minutes long. The four tales include “I Am Omar”, “I Am Abhimanyu”, “I Am Megha” and “I Am Afia”.
Juhi had first turned producer with superstar Shah Rukh Khan and filmmaker Aziz Mirza when they jointly launched production company Dreamz Unlimited. They had produced films like “Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani”, “Chalte Chalte” and “Asoka” under the banner, which was later shut down.
With “I Am”, Juhi is re-entering production.
Onir has earlier directed Juhi in two films - “My Brother Nikhil” and “Bas Ek Pal”.
