Juhi Chawla has a distinguished career spanning three decades, and she appears to have perfected the art of speaking just when the time is right. She was the reigning celebrity of the 1990s, and she is now a businesswoman and an active environmentalist.
The news of Juhi Chawla launching a lawsuit, exercising her right to full information on the impacts of 5G on human and environmental health, sent the Internet into a frenzy. The actress, however, stated that she is not opposed to technological development, but that she would like the authorities to certify it as safe for everyone and to disclose their research in the public domain so that everyone can see and be confident.
It was a great day for Twitterati who severely ridiculed the actress, who is known for jumping the gun. Juhi Chawla Mehta was crucial in initiating the debate about radiation poisoning in India and increasing awareness about the health risks posed by radiation from mobile tower antennae among Indian citizens.
She also played a key role in the dismantling of mobile towers that were within touching reach of hospitals and residential areas. She also started a campaign to reduce the amount of plastic in the environment. The actress, who has graced every magazine cover, has millions of followers on social media and has been on every media channel for over 30 years, was accused of a PR hoax, which surprised many. However, Juhi maintained a dignified silence.
After a month-long radio silence, Juhi has put out a video documenting her tryst with the concerned official authorities over the course of the last 10 years.
Juhi Chawla shares that, “Whatever transpired in June, left me feeling hurt and confused. On one hand, I received some bad press and publicity, on the other, I received heartwarming messages from unknown people telling me they were genuinely and completely in support. One such message was from a group of farmers in Maharashtra which brought tears to my eyes, they wished to carry out a voluntary drive to collect a small sum of money from each of their 10,000 farmer communities to help me pay the hefty penalty, I had been fined with.”
“Moments like these made me grateful that no matter what, I had lent a voice to the health concerns of many, many simple people of my country. When the storm died down, and I could see more clearly, I became calm and strong because I realized what an important, timely, relevant, and impacting question I had raised. Had it not been so, would the world have erupted the way it did?! “she further said.
“All this while I remained silent because I believe silence has its own deafening sound, but now I’d like to bring forth some very important and shocking details of happenings, in my 11-year journey of discovering EMF radiation, its health effects, and the glaring ignorance of certain authorities in this regard. I hope you can take some time to watch this video,” Juhi Chawla signs off.
