Last week, announcing Jahnavi’s graduation from the prestigious Columbia University, Juhi had tweeted a photo of her daughter from her convocation ceremony. She wrote, “Columbia class (of) 2023.” Juhi’s friend, actor Shah Rukh Khan, had congratulated her and Jahnavi, and tweeted, “This is so awesome. Can’t wait for her to get back and celebrate with her. And a feeling of extreme pride. Love you Jaanz (Jahnavi).”
Juhi humbly denies taking credit for her daughter’s “knowledge”
Talking about Jahnavi, Juhi Chawla recently told News18 in an interview, “One shouldn’t be praising one’s own kid, but she is a brilliant kid and boasts of a praiseworthy academic record. She did great in her International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) exams, too, and topped History in India. In IB, she topped her school. At Columbia University, she is on the Dean’s List.”
The actor further said about her daughter as she compared her to other star kids, “Sometimes I wonder all this knowledge comes from! I find it very surprising. This is what she has chosen for herself, so I can’t really take the credit for it. It all comes rather organically to her. I see many star kids trying to make it big in Bollywood. They are trying to be on the screen as actors and I feel it’s a lot of pressure on them. You don’t know if your next assignment, should you get it, will be successful. And then there is the scrutiny on social media. It’s all a lot to deal with.”
Juhi was last seen in the web series Hush Hush alongside Soha Ali Khan, Karishma Tanna, Kritika Kamra and Shahana Goswami.
