After making her acting debut with Bekhudi in 1992, Kajol had her first commercial success with the 1993 thriller Baazigar. She rose to prominence by featuring as the female lead in several top-grossing romantic flicks. From a conservative NRI in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge to a tomboy in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the actress has been immensely appreciated for her films.
She has also garnered five Filmfare Awards for Best Actress. Her highest-grossing release came with the action comedy Dilwale in 2015, alongside Shah Rukh Khan. In 2011, the Government of India awarded her with the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour of the country.
In the span of more than 25 years, Kajol has been choosy about the kind of work she does. But it wouldn’t be wrong to say that her choices have made her an actress who will be remembered for generations to come.
In personal life, Kajol began dating fellow actor, Ajay Devgn, in 1994, while filming Gundaraj. They subsequently got married on February 24, 1999. Kajol and Ajay have two kids–daughter Nysa and son Yug.
Kajol’s Helicopter Eela is directed by Pradeep Sarkar and is written by Mitesh Shah. The film also has National Award-winning actor Riddhi Sen, Neha Dhupia, and Tota Roy Chowdhary in key roles. Helicopter Eela is all set to hit the big screens on September 7.
