Actress Kajol feels it is difficult to find an interesting script in Bollywood these days.
“Despite all the changes that we see in cinema today, it is difficult to find exciting scripts, whether you are new or old. Also, I am getting choosy day by day,” Kajol told PTI.
The 41-year-old actress will now be seen next in actor-producer and husband Ajay Devgn’s film.
“We will start shoot this year in September-October. Beyond this I can’t talk anything about the film,” she said.
In 2014, Kajol was going to play the protagonist in Ajay’s home production, which was to be helmed by Ram Madhvani, but the project was dropped.
Ajay then went on to make his dream project Shivaay, while Kajol chose to do Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale in which she and starred opposite close friend Shah Rukh Khan.
Kajol is known to be forthright, and in a recent interview with IANS, she was asked about wage inequality — a hot topic in Hollywood and Bollywood. “It (the film industry) is male dominated. There is no getting away from that fact. Whether it is Hollywood or Bollywood, that will be there because currently our world is like that,” the actress said.
“Hollywood or Bollywood, it is simply another business where it is male dominated. But again it has to be monetarily feasible and economically viable. That’s something that has everything to do with the pay scale as far as this particular business is concerned.”
But neither age nor her marital status has ever come in the way of her career.
The mother of two was last seen on the big screen in the 2015 film Dilwale. And no, she isn’t taking a break from movies as of now. This is in addition to her other commitments.
With so many projects in hand, don’t her children — daughter Nysa and son Yug — complain?
“They always complain. If they had their way, I would be sitting at home 24/7. My son tells me ‘Mama I like it when I enter the house and see you waiting for me’. I think every child wants their mother to be their bai (maid),” she signed off.
