About to have her second child, Kajol says the highs and lows of being a mum have made her a patient person
Embracing motherhood usually means braving experiences and challenges. But before a woman takes on her new role as a parent, it is the pregnancy that transforms her in more ways than she can explain. Kajol, who is pregnant the second time round, agrees completely.
One always has an image of a mother, based on the social and cultural definitions. While it seems like an overwhelming role, it’s difficult to associate with it initially. Kajol faced a similar dilemma, “I’ve always thought that pregnant women were like goddesses. And in that perspective, I couldn’t picture myself as a goddess.”
The Emotional Rollercoster
Eventually you begin to accept the role, but it’s just the beginning of the journey. One that is packed with insecurities, anxieties and uncertainties. “You think twice about everything. Even with simple things like taking a walk, I would wonder if it would harm my baby or hurt me in any way. Every third day I’d call the doctor to check if I’m doing it right. You’re frightened to do anything and I learnt how to deal with that fear. The power of your mind is just amazing,” explains Kajol.
Every phase of pregnancy offers a new emotion and thrill. Kajol experienced the entire gamut. “My husband, sister and mother saw me through this transition and were rooting for me. As the days pass, you slowly pass from being insecure to scared to little more confident to more confident and then you’re sailing and then you’re about to pop it and then again you don’t know what you’re doing all over again. It’s like being re-born and growing up again,” she says with a smile.
Like every journey makes you the person you become, Kajol credits her pregnancy for having made her the woman she is today. “My journey helped me reflect and discover that my temper was much worse than I thought it was (laughs). When you have a baby, you feel that you have channelled your energy into something constructive. That gives you immense satisfaction,” she says.
About to begin her second innings as a mother, Kajol feels more confident and believes that every time is a new experience. “I feel much healthier mentally than I did earlier. Also, I can anticipate things with pleasure instead of dread. This time, I learnt that I am definitely a goddess for sure! (when I am pregnant, at least),” she laughs.
For mothers-to-be, Kajol has a final tip, “Every other mother may seem more in control than you. But at the end of the day, everyone is in the same boat. So you’re not the only one to have doubts, to be scared witless and feel insecure. So go ahead and have this amazing experience that god has gifted you with and experience it fully.”

In a candid mood, Kajol tells us that family is priority while films break the monotony
As in her films, Kajol’s entry in reality too makes heads turn. She enters her husband Ajay Devgn’s office in Juhu, Mumbai, and greets us with a loud ‘Hello’, flashing her oh-so-famous radiant smile. Sporting a simple pink gown, she looks as bereft of stress in her eighth month of pregnancy, as of any obvious make-up. “I don’t worry about things which I cannot change, so I’m cool,” she says.
The promotion of We Are Family (an adaptation of Hollywood blockbuster Stepmom) is keeping her busy, but she adds, “Nothing can distract you from being pregnant. It is 24×7. Unlike now, was very nervous the first time around.”
She admits to have loved
The role did have its share of challenges though, as Kajol admits that it was a tad tedious to handle the three kids she plays mother to in the film. “They are from different age groups and hence had varied demands. It was crazy on the sets,” she recalls. However being a mother to seven-year-old Nysa does help and right now the actress is excited about the new addition to the family. “Nysa feels she cannot hug me properly, but she has made peace with it.” Talking about her daughter always puts Kajol in a pleasant mood and she continues to share anecdotes. “Nysa has seven cousin brothers. So she wants a sister now to even up the odds,” she laughs. Will she return as a director? “Do I look like the kind who will pay to get an ulcer in my stomach?” she giggles and tells us that her return to the big screen will take a while. “Right now, I am not thinking of work. I am being selfish and just thinking about myself.”

|“We Are Family will transcend beyond Stepmom” – Kajol|

Kajol The phrase “a rare talent” describes Kajol to a tee. In her case, it shows: there’s a zest and verve to her work that not only suits her, but clearly suits her fans as well. It’s a rare talent who finds herself at the zenith of her popularity at the age when Indian actresses have either vanquished in the oblivion or have stopped getting the main lead offers. Given the traditional paucity of fine roles for more mature women, this is proof positive that Kajol’s talent can often turn manure into gold-dust. She may not have earned the tag of ‘The highest paid actress’ today but everyone recognises that a Kajol movie will be worth its weight in gold and worth an investment. Everyone knows this about Kajol: that the mantle of the most acclaimed film actress of our time could not be worn with such grace and humility. But everyone already knows that. What people don’t know is her kindness, her collaborative nature and her great humour. It is however, these unknown things which Kajol brings to her matchless performance. So much so that you forget being her co-actor and stand in one tight corner observing the magic she’s been spreading on the celluloid since 1992. UK’s Harrow Observer columnist and Bollywood Hungama’s London correspondent gets to know the woman who can fittingly be described as ‘seamless’.
“Siddharth wasn’t the only one who gave us suggestions”
Kajol “Ajay and I never talk work at home”
“Arjun was a good reel life husband”
“I haven’t got Elvis Presley out of his grave, have I?”
“Kareena’s got a great sense of humour”
Kajol “I don’t understand why people compare me with other actresses”
“The little girl reminded me of Nysa a lot”
“I wish Karan had merchandised We Are Family tissue rolls”
“We Are Family will transcend beyond Stepmom”
“I don’t know how much of Karan’s inputs were there in scripting the film”
Kajol “I play a mother, and that is the only common thread in MNIK and WAF”
“I am open to new scripts and new directors”
