The beautiful actress, Madhoo, who had won our hearts through the portrayal of her role in the film, Phool Aur Kaante opposite Ajay Devgn, had become a sensation overnight. There is not a single kid from the 90s, who must not have enjoyed the song, Maine Pyaar Tumhi Se Kiya Hai. While Madhoo had started her career with Phool Aur Kaante, she had received the much awaited recognition with Mani Ratnam's Tamil hit, Roja.
Though it has been years since the release of the film, audiences have not yet forgotten the giggles of the actress. Madhoo's performance in the film had won her a lot of accolades. However, besides her professional achievements, not many people know that she is married to businessman, Anand Shah. Anand is Juhi Chawla's husband and business tycoon, Jay Mehta's cousin. Henceforth, Juhi and Madhoo are each other's sister-in-law.
Recently, Juhi Chawla and Madhoo graced the popular comedy-cum-talk show, The Kapil Sharma Show. Over there, they spilt some beans about each other's lives. During their stint on the show, Madhoo, who was originally named Padma Malini, revealed how she got her present name. She shared that it was during her growing-up years in Delhi's Karol Bagh, when one of her neighbours, Uma didi, would call her ‘madhoo’.
Talking about why her neighbour used to call her Madhoo, the actress said, ''She used to say, ‘Idhar aaja, kitni madhoo jaisi hai, kitni pyaari hai’. Woh Madhoo kehti thi aur saare mujhe Madhoo bolne lage.'' Going further in the show, she also explained that since everyone started loving her new name, Madhoo’s father thought of officially changing her name to Madhoo Malini, adding that she was originally named Padma Malini.
On hearing this instance, Madhoo's sister-in-law, Juhi Chawla expressed her disappointment for not knowing about how Madhoo got her name even after being a family for 20 years. She quipped, ''Kya? Hum ek hi family ke hai? 20 saal ho gaye, mujhe yeh aaj tak nahi pata tha.''
Earlier on the show, the host, Kapil Sharma had taken a jibe at the devrani-jethani duo when Juhi had revealed that Madhoo is her devrani. Teasing her, he told Juhi, “Aapke pati bade hain, inke pati se…us hisaab se.” However, he quickly added, “Nahi toh heroine toh ek doosre se chhoti hi hoti hain humesha.''
Well, Juhi Chawla's reaction after hearing about how Madhoo got her name makes us believe that she is a very sweet jethani!
