It’s honestly hard to find a picture of Kajol not smiling and that’s one of the best things about the actress. Just how easygoing, honest and candid she always is. But that does not mean she’s never gone through trying times. Recently in a Humans Of Bombay post for the first time, she talked about how her father was not happy with her decision to get married back then and how she suffered two miscarriages before she had Nysa and Yug Devgn, one of which was during Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.
Opening up about her love story with Ajay Devgn, she said that the first time she had met Ajay was on the sets of Hul Chul and she had thought him to be someone broody and boring. She also disclosed that they were both dating different people then. She also revealed that when they had started dating and finally decided to get married her father was not happy and didn’t talk to her for a week. Her father wanted her to focus on her career. She then talked about how she was pregnant during the shoot of Karan Johar‘s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham but had suffered a miscarriage. She opens up about how it was a tough time for her but the movie was doing so well.

“We met 25 years ago, on the sets of Hulchul–I was ready for the shot & asked, ‘Where’s my hero?’ Someone pointed him out–he was broodily sitting in a corner. So 10 minutes before I met him, I bitched about him! We began talking on set & became friends. I was dating someone at the time & so was he–I’ve even complained about my then boyfriend to him! Soon, we both broke up with our significant others. Neither of us proposed–it was understood that we were to be together. It went from hand-holding to a lot more before we knew it! We used to go for dinners & so many drives–he lived in Juhu & I, in South Bombay, so half our relationship was in the car! My friends warned me about him–he had quite a reputation. But he was different with me–that’s all I knew. We’d been dating for 4 years, when we decided to get married. His parents were on board, but my dad didn’t talk to me for 4 days. He wanted me to focus on my career, but I was firm & he eventually came around. Again, there was no proposal–we just knew we wanted to spend our lives together. We got married at home & gave the media the wrong venue–we wanted it to be our day. We had a Punjabi ceremony & a Marathi one! I remember, during the pheras Ajay was desperately trying to get the pandit to hurry up & even tried to bribe him! I wanted a long honeymoon–so we travelled to Sydney, Hawaii, Los Angeles… But 5 weeks into it, he fell sick & said, ‘Baby, book me on the next flight home!’ We were supposed to do Egypt, but we cut it short. Over time, we began planning to have kids. I was pregnant during K3G, but had a miscarriage. I was in the hospital that day–the film had done so well, but it wasn’t a happy time. I had another miscarriage after that–it was tough. But eventually it worked out–we had Nysa & Yug & our family’s complete. We’ve been through so much–we’ve formed our own company, Ajay’s on his 100th film & every day we’re building something new. Life with him is content–we’re not too romantic or anything–we care for each other. If I’m thinking idiotic things, it’ll come out of my mouth without a filter & vice versa. Like right now I’m thinking that he owes me a trip to Egypt!”
But the actress is still positive and ever-smiling saying everything worked out in the end and that they have a beautiful family now. I love the fact that this couple is as real as it gets, in terms of their off-screen, on-screen camaraderie and their social media banter of course.
All the love and positive vibes to Kajol and Ajay. Their film Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior releases in theatres on 10th January 2020.
