New Delhi: Actress Juhi Chawla enjoys the reputation of being a down-to-earth lady in Bollywood. In her 25-year-long career, we have never heard of an instance where she was accused of throwing tantrums on the sets or misbehaving with any of the co-stars.

However, Juhi reportedly has done it for the first time as the producer of upcoming flick Chalk n Duster.

The movie revolves around teacher and child communication and will apparently see veteran actor Rishi Kapoor playing the role of a quizmaster. But as per the report on an entertainment website, actor Manoj Bajpayee was first signed for the role.

Juhi Chawla is eager to work with Shah Rukh Khan

Even on the first day of shoot, Manoj was present on the sets. But when Juhi came to know about him being signed to play the quizmaster, she was shocked.

Reportedly, Juhi was not impressed with Bajpayee's look and felt that he looked way too poor for the role of quizmaster, report further states.

At the end, Juhi got successful in sacking Manoj Bajpayee and roped in Rishi Kapoor to play the role.

Well! It seems Juhi Chawla knows how to use her powers as a producer.
