Juhi Parmar is quite looking forward to the coming week as it includes not only her birthday, but also of her would-be Sachin Shroff as well. Juhi celebrates her birthday on 14th December while Sachin’s birthday is on 17th December.
“It will not be a joint celebration for sure. Sachin has planned something for me, but he wants to keep it a secret. As for his birthday, I feel Sachin would love a beautiful private candle dinner. I am very lucky to have got a romantic guy, a tough proposition to find these days”, quips the actress.
On the type of gift she would want, Juhi says, “Anything he gives me is fine. It's the thought that matters more than the item”. But as a woman, would you not want precious stones from the man you love? “I do love diamonds, but the ring I am looking forward to these days is the wedding ring”, quips Juhi with a grin.
So how are the preparations going for the D-day back home? “My family in Jaipur is totally engrossed in getting things done for the wedding. But sadly I have not yet got the time to even make my trousseau”, says the bride-to-be. Don't you think you guys could have had a low key wedding given the current scenario? “Had the wedding been earlier, I would have toned it down. Plus my entire family and friends are really looking forward to the occasion, right from Haldi, mehendi to sangeet, and I would not want them to give up on their moment”, avers the actress.
So why did you choose the date of 15th February? “I purposely did not keep it on Valentines day, as I did not want to mix the two events. This way in the coming years, we can celebrate both Valentine's day and our wedding anniversary back to back”, expresses Juhi.
Juhi is honest enough to admit that she is getting the pre-wedding jitters. “But I think every thing should work out, for we love each other so much”, adds she. Don't you think you could have had more courtship time before taking the big leap? “Although we have not been together for too long, we have known each other for quite a while now. We fell in love and then approached our parents for consent, and they gave the green signal”, verbalizes Juhi.
The actress asserts that she will not take a break post marriage. But she did not deny that she too has heard rumors that Kumkum will end soon. “Having said that, I have been hearing the same talks for a long time, but we end up being stronger always. I hope even this time it's the same”, she says.
Coming to her latest show Chhote Miyan on COLORS, Juhi says anchoring a reality show is much easier than participating. “You don't get the jitter bug and sleepless nights before elimination”, quips Juhi.
“One of the main reasons for choosing this talent show was that for the first time, we will be having a competition to choose the best child stand-up artist. These kids are good and full of confidence”, she adds.
On the judges, she says Rahul Mahajan is very popular amongst children. Both Rahul and Sachin ji are very careful to make sure that they don't say anything which hurts the children.
