Kajol Still in Demand

Kajol is the first actress in Bollywood who has maintained her demand after marriage also. The actress has been praised by many directors and they willingly wanted them to take her in their flicks. But the story of director Siddharth Malhotra is quite different from others.

The director has promised Lord Hanuman that he would visit his temple every Saturday, if Kajol agrees to act in his forthcoming flick, We are Family. Yes true, Siddharth persuaded Kajol in this way, but in turn, now the director has trouble in fulfilling this vow. It was director’s dream to work with Kajol. He says,

“That’s how much I needed Kajol to do Susan Sarandon’s role from Stepmom. Only Kajol fitted the role. If she had said no I wouldn’t have made the film. So yes, I have to fulfill the mannat. I’m not a religious person at all. This was my wife’s idea.”

“Kajol’s mom Tanu Aunty (actress Tanuja) and my father (actor Prem Kishen) go back a long way. I’ve known Kajol and her sister Tanisha for long.

“Kajol was a dream. She’d arrive at 9 am, be on the sets for the first shot at 9.30 and we would pack up by 6 pm, so she could return to her baby. To me she was the ideal actress wife and mother, and that’s what she plays in my film.”

Siddharth also want to make another film with Kajol, but for that he needs to wait as the actress is pregnant and not be able to work.

Kajol is addictive. She kept me on my toes. If you work with her you better do your homework, or she will grill you.”
