It is all set to happen now. Though in 2014 it was all but confirmed that Kajol would feature as a central protagonist in her hubby Ajay Devgn’s next production with Ram Madhvani as the director, certain issues cropped up due to which the project had to be dropped. While there were talks about Kajol and Ajay coming together for another film, it wasn’t destined to happen back then. Soon after, Ajay went ahead with Shivaay, his dream project, while Kajol stepped in with Shah Rukh Khan for Dilwale with Rohit Shetty.
Now that Dilwale is set for release and Ajay too has plans firmed out for Shivaay with the shooting getting over in the month of April, the couple has put definite plans in place for their next. Confirms Kajol, “Yes, we have planned a film under ADF [Ajay Devgn Films] banner. We have a script in hand and are just refining it further with a couple of important things that need to be sorted.”
With the shooting of Shivaay already in progress, Ajay has plans to put this new film with Kajol on floors in June. He wouldn’t be directing the film though. “Yes, we have finalized the director. We would soon be revealing the film’s title, genre and my character,” says Kajol.
Though she stayed away from the big screen for good five years, Kajol isn’t looking at such an extended break in years to come. So even as Ajay is keeping a fair balance between the likes of quick-bucks affair Singham Returns and critically acclaimed Drishyam, Kajol has her own plans too.
“Ajay’s thinking is different and mine is different. I think of myself from a worker perspective and would basically do what I like doing,” she says, “Fortunately, I have a financial ability to do certain films only if I want to do. I would do that from script to script. I would step into a film only if I am able to justify my presence there.”
Time and again, she has been considered as someone who is very choosy about her roles, something which is visible in the fact that she has done just 30 films in a career spanning over 23 years.
“Well yes, I am very picky. But then you never know, if things are exciting enough, I would do three back to back commercial films next,” she laughs away. Now that would be exciting indeed. Till then, the wait is on for her next with Ajay.
