Kajol: Playing the Game with Your Own Rules

Thursday, 18 December 2008

KajolWhile the description of a famous Indian actress Kajol can get very flashy - talented, effervescent, charming, beloved - one thing you cannot say about the actress is that she's ordinary or typical. To be honest, it seems that for her whole life she has been breaking the secret rules of the Bollywood. The successor of Rekha, Hema Malini, Shridevi and Madhuri Dikshit, Kajol could not be considered as a follower of her predecessors; she broke every Indian movie stereotype possible and still became a queen of the Indian movies industry.

Stereotype No. 1: a successful Indian actress first of all should be beautiful and glamorous

Glamorous... Kajol cannot stand the word. The most hated thing she has in her life is to be seen as a flashy dressed up glamorous doll. Whilst every other Indian actress was hoping to get a role of a beautiful queen or a charming princess, Kajol was always more interested in her role's character and personality as well as her inner world. The role in her first hit-movie «Playing with the Death» was just what she wished for. The girl Kajol impersonated is acting very bravely in the search of her sister's murderer. «Playing with the Death» was the most successful movie in the box-office for 1993 and has also acquainted Kajol with the friend for the rest of her life, Shakrukh Khan with who she had played her best parts. One of the parts include the part in the «The Princess That Didn't Get Kidnapped» (1995), an outstanding Bollywood movie that was in the Indian cinemas for 650 weeks straight. Such a success, it seems, could never get beaten but in three years time Kajol and Shakrukh Khan managed to do so and with that in three years the two trembled India. Karan Johar's debut film «Everything Happens in This Life» about the real friendship growing into real love has gathered every award possible and finally got its place at the stand of the national love and adoration. In the movie every mother had only two names to call their babies with. If it was a boy, then the name would be Rahul and a girl would always be named Anjali. The part of an awkward, charmless and ill-favored girl Anjali was filled with such sincerity and earnestness by Kajol that until today this part is like Kajol's second character.

Stereotype No. 2: the Main Bad Guy in an Indian Movie is Always a Male

In the year 1997 at the Indian Oscar Award Ceremony «FilmFare» a unprecedented event occurred where at the first time in history the award for the bad guy (the award that is given out at the Indian Oscar Ceremony only) was given to the actress as opposed to be always given out to male actors. In the evil characters of Bollywood exhibition, among the likes of Mugambo, Gabbar, Singh, Shakal and more, a place was reserved for Isha Divan from «The Hidden Truth» magnificently played by Kajol. This was her way of stating that she indeed can play anyone and any character possible. This was also a way of stating that Kajol could break box-office without her mentor Shakrukh Khan.

Stereotype No. 3: Career is the Most Important Thing for a Nice Actress

Throughout her career in Bollywood, Kajol has established herself as one of the most demanded actress of Bollywood. A lot of plots for films were created directly for Kajol. However in 2001 after the super-successful «Both in Grief and Joy» directed by Karan Johar which helped Kajol receive yet another Filmfare's Oscar, Kajol announced that she was leaving the movie industry. There wasn't a single actress who could leave the industry at the prime of her career but Kajol had a reasonable excuse this time - she was awaiting a child from her beloved husband. Ajay Devgan and Kajol met one another in 1995 at the shooting of the «Family and Justice» and they first simply became friends. But later the friendship became something bigger and eventually became love. In the year 1999 Ajay proposed to Kajol. On February 24th the two bound their two lives together at a modest wedding ceremony in a small company of family and closest friends. After that Kajol continued to star in numerous movies but after she passed the pregnancy test and it was positive, she had made a decision to give up work for family and maternity. She even declined the offer from Shakrukh Khan to star in the new movie «With the Paths of Love» even though she was ready to sign the contract whenever before taking the test. Kajol has always stated that family was more important than job to her and that she wouldn't hesitate to leave the peak she climbed up so hard for her child and one can see that those were not simply words: Kajol affirmed the words with action. Eventually Kajol gave birth to her child. It was a girl who the parents called Nisa and it was long after that Kajol has dedicated herself to the family fully.

Stereotype No. 4: Out of Sight - Out of Mind

There are just so many actresses that are afraid to get married before 30 to stay in shape and in the light of the projectors that are scared that the family would destroy their career. Those women have such examples of Dimpl Kampadia and Madhuri Dikshit in front of their eyes, the icons of the Bollywood who never could return to the screens after being carried away with the family. Their spots were later taken by others. Even though Kajol had promised to make a comeback has good chances to become the same forgotten actress whose comeback is simply never to occur. She didn't have a role in movies for the last five years before 2006 when the «Blind Love» directed by Kunala Kohli was released and all of the critique and doubts were wiped away. The movie scored top in the Bollywood's box-office and Kajol received a Filmfare award for the part of the blind girl. In the ceremony she came first amongst the likes of Rani Mukerji and Aishwarya Rai.

Thanks to the triumphal comeback Kajol has restored the place she had once been in immediately. The best directors India could offer are now in queues to get Kajol to star in their movies. Well Kajol didn't rush into the movie industry and the acting just yet, since family still stayed a priority for the young mother. This is maybe why her next movie was a family film by all means possible.  В U, Me Aur Hum - the movie she starred in with her husband was directed by Ajay himself. The movie wasn't as successful financially but Kajol's part of a girl with the Alzheimer's decease was greeted warmly by the critics and Kajol might want to move to the front of the queue for the awards of this year's Filmfare's Oscars.

Right now Kajol is preparing herself for the shooting of a movie directed by her close friend Karan Johar called «My Name is Khan» where her lifelong friend Shakrukh Khan would also star. Kajol didn't accept the offer for quite a while so the gossips about Kajol's husband being jealous and not wanting his wife to be in the same movie with Shakrukh Khan again started to flow around but Kajol explained the delay by the fact that it took her long time to read the plot. Finally she accepted and signed the contract. The fans just cannot wait for the comeback of the brightest couple of the Bollywood which success can only be beaten by themselves.
