Kajol, an industry favourite, has been in the business for around two decades now. She has even given us some memorable hits such as Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and My Name Is Khan. But this is once again just an example of how everything is not it seems. Kajol has revealed that she actually never wanted to be an actor. The actress was on Saavn’s new podcast named Take 2 with Anupama and Rajeev with actor Rajkummar Rao, which is where she discussed her decision to join the film industry,
"I never wanted to be an actor actually. I didn't think of it was worth the money that was being paid out. I didn't think it was worth the effort and I definitely thought my mother worked too hard for whatever she was doing and however we were at that point of time," Kajol said. Kajol even added that she informed her mother Tanuja, who is a veteran actress, that she “wanted a paycheck at the end of the month.” She was unsure of entering the field as she believed Bollywood to be a very erratic industry and acting a very erratic profession. But looks like everything works out for the best as now Kajol is one of the biggest leading ladies Bollywood has ever seen. She has another film releasing named Helicopter Eela.
