Actress and environmentalist Juhi Chawla is practically living out of a suitcase for quite a while juggling between 3 places at once, Mumbai for her professional commitments and social endeavours, UK where her kids are currently studying and her family house in Uganda.

Juhi who was recently back in the bay to shoot the final portions of her upcoming Shelly Dhar film Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga alongside Anil Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor and Rajkumar Rao flew back to Uganda but this time for a special reason. The actress was invited to attend a community reception held in Uganda in honor of Hon. Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi and H.E. President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

Juhi shares, ‘While shooting for the climax of Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and a day before the last day of the shoot, Jay and myself had flown down to Uganda especially to spend time with my daughter and our family as well as this scheduled meeting of the family with Shri Narendrabhai. It was an honor, privilege and pleasure.’

‘My father in law is a prominent citizen and industrialist of Uganda and also a recipient of Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award presented Shri Modiji with his recently released Autobiography ‘Call of the Peacock’ …I presented him with originals of my film Chalk N Duster, ‘she added.

Juhi remembers, ‘Narendrabhai jovially asked if I speak Gujarati by now.’
