Juhi Chawla plays a Kashmiri Pandit much inspired by Sanjay Suri's mother in Onir's I AM

Onir's I AM is a tale of 4 stories woven together taking audiences through issues and dilemmas that bruise modern Indian society.

CHECK OUT: Juhi Chawla turns widow

One of the stories-I AM MEGHA starring the beautiful Juhi Chawla sees her play the role of a Kashmiri Pandit widow based on the life of actor Sanjay Suri's mother.

Reveals director Onir, 'Juhi's character is that of a Kashmiri Pandit. Her character is inspired from Sanjay and his mother's life because they are refugees from Kashmir.'

The story revolving around the life of a refugee takes Juhi (Megha) back to Kashmir after 20 years to the house she lived in and many incidents from Urvashi Suri's life have been incorporated into the film.

Confirms Sanjay Suri who is also a lead in the film, 'Yes, it is loosely based on my mother's story but it is also about coming to terms with your past. Every person who has left Kashmir will identify with that. My mother revisited Kashmir after 17 years but she still didn't visit our house in Srinagar where dad was killed'
