Delhi High Court’s proceeding disrupted by live rendition of songs from Juhi Chawla’s films; Ghoonghat Ki Aad Mein Dilbar Ka, Lal Lal Hoton Pe Gori Tera Naam Hai and more


Actor Juhi Chawla’s decision to invite fans to join the virtual hearing of the Delhi High Court backfired spectacularly as the proceeding was marred by fans using the occasion to sing famous songs from the actor’s films. Angered by repeated disruptions, the judge even directed the police to initiate a contempt proceeding against a fan.

One fan had joined the hearing and asked for the actor by asking, “Where is Juhi Ma’am, I can’t see Juhi Ma’am.”

When the fan did not stop even after the judge’s order, Justice JR Midha ordered to initiate contempt proceedings against Juhi’s fan. “Please identify and issue contempt notice. Contact Delhi Police IT Department. We will issue notice,” Livelaw quoted Justice Midha as saying.

According to journalist Ashmit Kumar of CNBC-TV18, one fan joined the virtual hearing and began to sing Ghoonghat Ki Aad Mein Dilbar Ka from the film Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke starring Aamir Khan. He was removed but this did not deter him from joining again. This time, the Juhi’s fan was found to be singing Lal Lal Hoton Pe Gori Tera Naam Hai from film Naajayaz also starring Ajay Devgn.

The fan was reportedly removed, but he joined again to sing Meri Banno Ki Aayegi Baraat from Juhi’s another film Aaina.

The lawyer for Juhi Chawla said that ‘maybe the person is already affected by 4G radiation.’

Juhi had earlier shared the link for the virtual hearing on her Instagram page. She had written, “Please join me at our first virtual hearing at the Delhi High Court at 10.45 IST today. Link in bio.”

The high court reserved its judgment on Juhi’s plea but asked why the actor had not approached the government before approaching the court. The court said that her plea appeared to be a publicity stunt.

Juhi on Monday had filed a lawsuit in the Delhi High Court against the implementation of 5G wireless network in India, raising her concerns on the radiation impact on citizens, animals, flora and fauna.
