QSQT turns 25; Juhi gets notalgic

April 30, 2013


MUMBAI, April 30 -- Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (QSQT)-a film of many firsts-completes 25 years of its release and its lead actress Juhi Chawla still relishes the time spent on the sets and says none of them knew "how the film would turn out". QSQT was Mansoor Khan and Aamir Khan's debut vehicle as director and actor, respectively. Juhi too got recognition with the tragic love saga after a miniscule role in Sultanat.

"Mansoor Khan called just the other day to say we're going to have a reunion of the film's cast and crew. And I was like, my god! Is it really 25 years of QSQT? Wow! I feel so young when I say this," said Juhi.

However, she misses the team members whom they lost over the years.

"Jokes aside, it is amazing that the film is still so fresh and alive. The songs by Anand-Milind like Ghazab Ka Yeh Din and Ae Mere Humsafar are hummed to this day. Sadly, Majrooh Sultanpuri, who wrote the lovely songs, is no more. From the film's team we also lost our wonderful producer Nasir Hussain Saab. And from the cast Goga Kapoor is gone. But most of us are still around to get together for the screening of QSQT that Mansoor Khan organised...."

"You know QSQT was not really my debut film. I had done Sultanat with Sunny Deol before that. But no one remembers me in that film. If you blinked, you missed me in that," she said.

"In QSQT, we were all relatively new, therefore, most comfortable working together. There was no stress, no stretched nerves and frayed ego," added Juhi.

After QSQT, Juhi and Aamir did several films together but she admits that QSQT was special. "I loved Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, also Ishq. But QSQT was special to both of us," said the actress.
