Kajol ruled hearts with her celebrated roles in “Baazigar”, “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”, “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…”, “Fanaa” among several others. Kajol also marks a huge change in her digital debut with the short film “Devi”, where she shares screen space with nine other actresses. She has proved herself as an actor and a star time and again.
I have always done something where the character has an emotional graph: Kajol
What does she look for in a script now? “The magic,” she replied. “Give me three scenes and I can create magic. If you look at my career and choice of roles, I have always done something where the character has an emotional graph, something substantial. I want to create a memory in the mind of the audience through the characters I portray.”
Starting her career in 1992 with “Bekhudi”, Kajol has bagged numerous popular awards
Starting her career in 1992 with “Bekhudi”, Kajol has bagged numerous popular awards and also proved her versatility with a variety of roles. She was equally impressive as the murdered Isha Diwan in the whodunit “Gupt” and the tomboy-turned-glam girl in “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai”. She added: “I feel I am successful not because of the fame and money but because of the individual I have become.
Kajol says, “My choices of films are the reflection of what I believe in”
When asked about if her criteria for choosing a film have changed, Kajol replied: “My choices of films are the reflection of what I believe in. That is how I can be honest with my choices as a performing artist. I am fortunate to have that financial freedom that many artists do not have, so I might as well utilise it to be a part of narratives that are thought-provoking.”
