Happy my personal life took over film career: Kajol
Mumbai: Actress Kajol, who played lead roles in some of the biggest Bollywood blockbusters in 1990s and early 2000s, may not be seen in too many films now a days but she is happy that her personal life has taken precedence over professional matters.
The versatile screen performer, who has two kids, says she is a strict mother and her husband, Bollywood star Ajay Devgn, does not like when she scolds her children.
"I am the stricter one between two of us. Ajay doesn't like when I scold our children in his presence. I have to be strict because I'm more of an 'at home' parent. When Ajay is around it is playtime. Our children are used to me in his absence," Kajol told PTI in an interview.
Post-marriage, the 38-year-old actress cut down on her work though she continued to feature with big stars and collect accolades for her performance.
Her major releases after marriage were 'Fanaa', 'U Me Aur Hum' (2008), 'My Name is Khan' (2010), 'We Are Family' (2010).
But Kajol has done special appearances in several films like 'Kal Ho Na Ho', 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna', 'Om Shanti Om', 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and 'Student of the Year'.
"Once I got married and had babies, I had to take time out for my children. Hence I took a break. My personal life took over my professional life and I was very happy about it," she said.
Apart from her film commitments, Kajol has been in demand for brand endorsements as well. She has been appointed brand ambassador of Kimberly-Clark Lever and will be seen in a new TV commercial of the US-based consumer goods firm's product for babies.
