As the entrance of a member of the royal family was announced, a few maids offered Juhi a touch-up. She greets him as a subordinate would a member of the royal family. The video has been spliced together, and we only see the bits where Juhi speaks. She said few lines about Mughal emperors towards the end of the film.

Bahadur Shah Zafar, directed by Ravi Chopra and BR Chopra, starred Mukesh Khanna, Ashok Kumar, Raj Babbar, and Gufi Paintal, among others. Juhi began filming her part a year after her Bollywood debut in 1986. Sultanat was her debut film, but it wasn't until 1988's Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, in which she starred alongside Aamir Khan, that she became well-known.

Sharing the video, Juhi wrote, “Throwback Alert! BR Chopra ji’s serial where they gave me an important guest appearance. It was a 1 day shoot, I remember I was very very new & sooo nervous that during the shot I kept forgetting my lines. Ravi Chopraji was directing & he didn’t lose his patience even once, kept telling me to be calm .. to relax .. he was very kind."

She added, “Further , I’d like to thank @bestofjuhi who dug this clip up. After this shoot which may have been way back in 1987, I never ever saw it & today is the first time after alllllll these years …and I’m amazed I could say these lines..or even express I have no idea what I did … and what Chopraji saw in me, why he cast me …. and now…… i see it … TV Serial : Bahadur Shah Zafar.”

Juhi Chawla will soon be seen in Rishi Kapoor’s final film, Sharmaji Namkeen.
