Usually, actors sign films after thinking very carefully, but sometimes they also get tricked into recognizing people. Something similar happened with Juhi in the early days of her career. He signed a film, Jannat. But while the film was being made, things got spoiled and it got locked in the box. But one day Juhi was shocked when she was told that she is appearing in a serial on Doordarshan. While Juhi did not work in any TV serial.

Kyun Atki film
