Juhi Chawla shares thoughts on 5G suit, 'An important message got lost in the voice,' says actress

Juhi also believes that the important message got lost in the noise surrounding the case.
She said, "There has been so much noise in the past few days that I couldn't even hear myself. I feel like a very important message got lost in the noise. That is, we are not against 5G. In fact, we are welcoming of it. All we're asking is that the authorities certify it safe. We are just asking them to publish their studies in the public domain so our fears are allayed."
"We just want to know that it is safe for children, pregnant women, unborn children, for people who are old and infirm…for flora and fauna. That is all we're asking," she added.
