Kajol on working with Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar

Kajol was once a good friend of the ace directors of the industry Aditya Chopra and Karan Johar. However, after her husband’s spat with Yash Raj during the release of Son of Sardar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Kajol and Aditya are not on the talking terms with each other. But, a shocking thing has happened, when Ajay made a statement against Karan Johar for bribing KRK to spread negative reviews about Shivaay. This led to a crack in Kajol and KJo’s long-time friendship. However, when Kajol was recently asked about working with both of them, she sarcastically said, “If a director, who has had issues with me, ever came to me with a film, he would have had to sort them before he can even approach me with a film. So the question is moot.” This was a quote published in DNA.

Kajol slams paparazzi

A few days ago Kajol blasted photographers for misbehaving with her kids Nysa and Yug for photographs. In an interview, she was quoted saying, “Everyone wants to have a certain amount of normality in life. But then, maybe that’s just me. There may be many people who would be very happy to get dressed and get out every day, every morning. They would be glued to their makeup, styling and God knows what else and still be happy about it. I’m not putting them down in any way. But it’s just about me as a person. I like the part of my life which is private and normal — where I don’t have to play dress up for the photographers. I went to a mandir a few days ago for a pooja and the paparazzi landed over there, too. I was like, ‘Excuse me, what are you doing here?” reported DNA.
