On the other hand, Juhi Chawla told that, she was very impressed with her husband Jai Mehta and that is why she did not want to marry any actor. Juhi said, ‘All are great actors. But I don’t think I could handle most of my husband looking in the mirror as much as I could handle myself in the mirror. As an actor, you are very self-conscious and I could not even imagine that I could marry such a person. So I was very clear from the beginning.
