Mumbai, June 3 (IANS) Veteran actor Anupam Kher pulled actress Juhi Chawla’s leg on social media, asking her to send him mangoes just like she did for megastar Amitabh Bachchan for his film “102 Not Out”.
To express his gratitude, Amitabh had sent Juhi a handwritten note in Hindi, which Juhi could not understand.
After receiving the letter, Juhi took its photograph and posted it on Twitter on Saturday, saying: “Amitji this is beautifully written… I love it par kya likha hai (but what does it say)?”
This caught Anupam’s attention.
Anupam said: “This is what Amitabhji has written – ‘Thank you for the mango carton. Loads of love to your family and you’. Now please send me a carton as well.”
In response, on Sunday, Juhi wrote: “Aap toh kalakaar nikle. Zaroor. peti toh banti hai. peti is on the way (You are very talented! This deserves a mango carton. It is on the way to your home).”
On the work front, Anupam will next be seen in debutante director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte’s drama titled “The Accidental Prime Minister”.
