Kajol claims she never wanted to be a part of Bollywood and just wanted to ‘do a job.’


Actress Kajol, who has had roles in successful movies like Baazigar, Yeh Dillagi, Karan Arjun, and Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, has said that she did not always want to pursue a career in acting.

Tanuja and her daughter, actress Kajol, will appear as guests on Kon Honaar Crorepati, the Marathi version of Kaun Banega Crorepati, shortly. Kajol said on the program that she never intended to be an actress. She also said that all she wanted was a normal job.

“I never intended to be a part of the Bollywood or Hindi Film business,” Kajol remarked at the event, hosted by Sachin Khedekar. I never imagined that I would have a career in acting. I’d always wanted to work. A job where I’d receive a check in the mail every month.”

Kajol made her acting debut in 1992 with Rahul Rawail’s Bekhudi and went on to star in films like Baazigar, Yeh Dillagi, Karan Arjun, Diand lwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Gupt, Khan, Fanaa and My Name is Khan is among the most popular films in the country right now. In an earlier interview, the performer, who has had multiple successes, told PTI that she became an actor by happenstance.

“I didn’t get off to a good start. My first film was a flop. I never thought about acting as a profession; it came to me and I simply went with the flow. I was always on my toes (when selecting a film) and have always been picky. I had a terrific experience working on all of the films and met some incredible individuals. I still consider my job to be a game, and I prefer to do it at home “In 2019, she said.

Kajol was most recently seen in the 2021 Netflix feature Tribhanga, with Tanvi Azmi and Mithila Palkar. She is now working on Salaam Venky, Revathi’s forthcoming feature. The film’s release date has been set for October 20, 2021. The film’s original title, The Last Hurrah, was altered before production began.
