Juhi Chawla was one of the top actors of the 90s. She has starred in a number of films and all films emerged to be a hit, including, Darr, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Yes Boss and Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. In July, two of Juhi's films completed over two decades of its release. Yes Boss with Shah Rukh Khan completed 21 years, while Hum Hai Rahi Pyaar Ke with Aamir Khan completed 25 years.

In a recent interview with DNA, when Juhi was questioned about the same, she said, "To tell you truthfully, I haven’t watched 95 percent of my work. Maybe, I have seen a film once at a preview or in a theatre but never revisited them. For me, it’s a mixture of amazement and disbelief that I did all this work." She even said that she could not believe so many years have passed.

Considering the season of remakes in Bollywood, Juhi was asked if she wants any of her films to be remade today. To this, she replied, "Maybe Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. When we made the film, the media was just beginning to explode, it was too early to talk about channel wars, TRPs, etc. There was so much behind-the-scenes politics, about politicians etc, that probably people didn’t get the nuances at that time. But it makes so much sense today, I think that film ought to be worked upon now."

Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani starred Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla in the lead roles. The film worked wonders at the box office at that time. Revealing whom would she like to step into the shoes of Shah Rukh and hers, Juhi instantly said, "Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. I recently saw Sanju (starring Ranbir) and Raazi (starring Alia) and both are superlative. I would like them in Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani if it is remade."

For the uninitiated, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are also currently dating each other in real life. A few months ago, Ranbir had told a magazine that their relationship is very new now and they want to give it some time to breathe.

That would be something very good if they remake Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, I loved that movie and it’s one of my favorite movies among the genre of meaningful and contentful commercial cinema. It was made too early for its time and for many people to understand the content it had conveyed, but now if remade, people can understand and relate to its content much better because they have experienced modern day media journalism for many years now: sensational journalism in support of a consumer culture ready to buy and sell any over-sensationalized emotions, out of context and devoid of logic; hand-in-hand in assistance of political propaganda machine :-/
