Kajol may have been working for nearly 30 years but she says her dedication to acting hasn’t wavered at all. “I’ve come from a time when we used to work from seven in the morning to nine in the night on a daily basis, without the comforts of sitting in an air-conditioned room,” the Fanaa starlet shared.
“Somewhere down the line, you realise that your work is important. You have to take it seriously every single day…it’s the most important thing.”
Much of this discipline, Kajol shared, comes from her mother who taught her that no work is too big or too small. “My mother made me sweep the house and clean the bathroom. She’d say, ‘If, any point, you don’t have servants, you should be able to look after your house yourself.’
Having featured in more than half a dozen super hits with Shah Rukh Khan and being one-half of their much sought-after onscreen couple, Kajol says working alongside the superstar is always a great pleasure as he makes the entire experience very easy.
Bollywood’s dynamic duo has recently shot a special sequence for Shah Rukh’s upcoming film, Aanand L Rai’s Zero. While the film will feature Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma as the two main female leads, Kajol and Rani Mukerji have shot a sequence which the latter actually called “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, part two.”
Kajol, who last worked with Shah Rukh in 2015’s Dilwale, praised the actor for his commitment to cinema. “We actually only shot for half an hour but it was great! It’s always fabulous to work with him. He is a really amazing man to work with because he gets 300% involved in whatever he is doing,” Deccan Chronicle quoted the star as saying. “It’s also great fun because Shah Rukh is such a fine actor that it comes very naturally to work with him and alongside him.”
