When an Oscar winning director like Lasse Hallstrom and producer Steven Spielberg join hands for a film, it’s surely an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and Juhi Chawla didn’t want to miss out on that one. The actress has been signed for their upcoming venture The Hundred Foot Journey.
The film which is currently being shot in Mumbai, is based on an Indian family trying to settle down in a small village in France where they own an Indian restaurant right opposite a French one which is run by Madame Mallory played by Helen Mirren. While the film’s male lead is Om Puri, Juhi will be seen reprising the role of Om Puri’s wife.
The Hundred Foot Journey is based on the Richard C Morais’ novel by the same name and is co-produced by Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake.
