Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla says she is happy to be more than just an actor.

Despite being absent from the Hindi film industry for over two years now, Juhi Chawla does not have much to regret when it comes to her professional career. In a recent interview the 90s superstar confessed that she has many other interests aside from working as an actress. Chawla says that she likes to work for the environment, wellness and education.

The actress who is now 53 years old spoke about her last few years and said, “Over the last many years, there has been a gradual shift in my areas of interest, rather I’d say that I’ve come to realise some startling facts about our environment I was oblivious to earlier which shook my core. Gradually, I educated myself about radiation caused by mobile towers and plastic pollution. I also began voicing my opinion on social media and in interviews. In the process, I met many like-minded people who were passionate about the environment and have been silent heroes, passionately working to make our Earth a better place. That’s when I founded an initiative Citizens For Tomorrow, categorically to spread awareness about our environment. Over a period of time, I have become a passionate environmentalist. I want a better world and education, that makes a difference for all children across the world, including mine.”
“I believe life became more enjoyable after I realized my passion for things other than cinema. I’ve set a vision for the young girls studying and I look forward to strive and educate myself on how can I bring about a difference for a holistic learning approach. When you enjoy and love what you do, it is not work anymore. It makes you want to wake up every day,” she added.
