Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta recently made waves on the internet for the modernization of their ancestral home in Malabar Hills, Mumbai. The house was purchased by the grandfather of the actress’ husband in 1940. Today, its terrace has been renovated by Sri Lankan architect Channa Daswatte.
Channa has also worked with Jay Mehta for his previous projects so it was easy for the latter to trust the former as well this time around. Speaking about the renovation of the terrace of his Channa house, the businessman and husband of Juhi Chawla said earlier that the architect understood his request.
Speaking to Architectural Digest, he said, “I have nothing to explain to him; he really understands my way of life, ”
The view from the terrace of Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta’s Malabar Hill house is fantastic. According to Hindustan Times, it overlooks the Mumbai skyline and the iconic Marine Drive. There is a large strip of greenery serving as a divider between the two and it is as beautiful and calming as it gets. A slightly more distant view of the Arabian Sea is also visible.
Speaking of the terrace itself, Channa used colors like terracotta and red. There is an eight-seater wedge-shaped dining table on the front part of the terrace and the rear part is also useful for more intimate parties. Large palm trees also cover a large part of the terrace.
Meanwhile, Juhi Chawla recently took a jibe at WhatsApp and Facebook at a time when millions of users are ditching messenger and switching to other chat platforms to ensure their privacy.
Taking a dig on the social media platforms mentioned above, Juhi shared a note on Twitter that read: “When something is free, your freedom is the price.
“Desmond Tutu once said, ‘When the missionaries came to Africa, they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, “let’s pray”. We close our eyes. When we opened them, we had the Bible and they had the earth.
“Likewise, when social media came along, they had WhatsApp and Facebook and we had freedom. They said it was free. We close our eyes. When we opened them we had WhatsApp and Facebook and they had our freedom.
“When something is free, your freedom is the price.”
“Would you accept?” the actress wrote with the note.
