Juhi Chawla enjoys doing farming; she also came out in support of farmers, when the covid-19 pandemic had hit them hard. She lent her family farmland to the landless farmers to let them cultivate rice in the season.

Since we are in a lockdown, I have decided to give our land to the landless farmers to farm on. We are letting them farm rice, this season & in return take a little portion of the produce for themselves. It’s not a new practice. It’s just going back to the past to the way farming was done decades ago, but then isn’t that the wiser way? Our farmers know the soil, land, air & wind far better than we city people ever will from our textbook knowledge”, she was quoted as saying by IANS.
