Juhi Chawla married Jay Mehta in a secret ceremony.

The reason behind the secrecy was Juhi's fear of jeopardizing her acting career which was at its peak then.

She felt she had just established herself in the industry and didn't want anything to derail her success.

This fear stemmed from a perception that marriage could affect her marketability as an actress.

Marrying Jay coincided with a difficult time in her personal life as she had just lost her mother.

Juhi described this period as one where she felt like she was losing everything she held dear.

Despite the secret wedding, Juhi and Jay's relationship blossomed, and they have two children together.

This mindset of marriage affecting an actress's career was more prevalent in the past compared to today.

Juhi's story highlights the pressure actresses might have faced regarding marriage in earlier times.
