If you are a 90s kid, you can never forget the cute boy-next-door Jugal Hansraj, who had made every girl swoon over him after his appearance in Ghar Se Nikalte Hi song from the 1996 film Papa Kehte Hain. His popularity helped him bag a multi-starrer film like Mohabbatein which turned out to be one of the most loved films of all time. But even after having a superhit film under his name, Jugal’s acting career didn’t last long. He remained away from showbiz and is currently settled in New York with his wife Jasmine and son. But Jugal has once again found himself under the limelight after he posted a picture sporting his grey hair and social media couldn’t stop gushing about him.
On the occassion of Diwali, the 48-year-old shared a selfie with his wife Jasmine wherein he was seen gracefully embracing his grey-hair look. “Wishing you all a very happy Diwali and a prosperous year ahead. Stay safe,” Jugal had written on Instagram.
And the moment he shared the image on social media, his fans were in awe of his new look and praised him for embracing his grey hair. “This hair color suits you soooo muchhh, I’m in awe !!” one Instagram user commented. Another user commented, “Omg after so many years i saw him.” While some people compared him with Hollywood actor George Clooney, some called him ‘handsome’ forever.
Jugal was first seen as a child actor in Shekhar Kapur’s 1983 film Masoom. He then made his acting debut as an adult in Aa Gale Lag Jaa in 1994. Later, he featured in Mohabbatein. In 2008, he directed the 3D animation film, Roadside Romeo.
In July, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur went down memory lane and recalled working with Jugal Hansraj in Masoom. “Jugal, I don’t know if you remember what a run around you gave me to do the part. I saw you in the Amul Dada commercial, and it took me months to convince you to act in the movie. I would have to take you to the recordings of the songs, take you to sets on studios, to convince you to that film making can be really interesting exciting and fun,” Shekhar Kapur shared.
Masoom is Shekhar Kapur’s first directorial film. It narrates story of a happily-married man whose life turns upside down when he gets to know that he has a son from a past affair. The film featured Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi, with Jugal Hansraj and Urmila Matondkar as child actors. The film was an adaptation of Erich Segal’s 1980 novel Man, Woman And Child.
