Zee Bollywood celebrates 25 years milestone of the 101% Shuddh Blockbuster film ‘Judaai’ on 28th February

 Kolkata : “Lalach bahut badi kamzori hai insaan ki” this dialogue from the 90’s blockbuster film ‘Judaai’ perfectly summarizes what the film meant to convey. The movie featuring Bollywood’s bemisaal jodi – Anil Kapoor and Sridevi along with the gorgeous Urmila Matondkar, received global recognition and praise. Upasaana Singh’s popular dialogue, ‘Abba Dabba Jabba’ and Paresh Rawal’s character Hasmukhlal with a question mark on his forehead, brought a comedy element in the movie which left a lasting impression on the audience. The film not only projected stellar performances but also it was Bollywood’s successful attempt at featuring a money-lured protagonist and her journey. With the fresh storyline, hit songs and catchy dialogues, it succeeded to become one of the top-grossing films of that year. Though ‘Judaai’ marked Sridevi’s last collaboration with Anil Kapoor, the famous duo is everyone’s favourite till date. The film completes a dhamakedar milestone of 25 years this 28th February. Celebrating this occasion, 101% shuddh Bollywood channel Zee Bollywood will air the 101% Shuddh drama, 90’s style on 28th February at 9 pm.

Reminiscing the memories, Anil Kapoor said, “Celebrating 25 years of Judaai - saying it out loud feels so surreal. It was absolutely a pleasure working with two exceptionally talented women Sridevi and Urmila. The working style was very different back then and had its own charm. I remember this one particular scene; we were shooting the song sequence ‘Haan Mujhe Pyaar Hua’ and all I had to do was remove my sunglasses and put it in my jacket and look at Urmila. Little did I know, the jacket I was wearing did not have any pockets and during the shot I was clueless, looking for a place to rest my sunglasses. The whole crew on the set burst into laughter and that shot made it to the final cut. Looking back at those days brings so much joy. I’m delighted to celebrate 25 nostalgic years of Judaai”


1997’s blockbuster film of the year, Judaai is a story of a picture-perfect family of Raj (Anil Kapoor) and Kaajal (Sridevi) leading their mediocre life. Their bond is put to test when Raj’s boss’s daughter, Jhanhvi (Urmila Matondkar) comes to town, falls head over heels for him and wishes to marry him in exchange for a load of money. Lured by the money and comfort, Kaajal agrees to the terms and encourages Raj to marry Jhanhvi happily. Unaware of the problems that entails post this union, Kajal fights to regain her husband and family.
