That's what the sari is about. Everything is covered, yet a peep of an ankle can be a turn on for men.— Kajol
The most vibrant Kajol quotes that are glad to read
When you walk in a saree, you must kick the pleats. It becomes more comfortable that way.
By the time you're 30, you know who you are inside.
You learn to laugh at things you can't change; you learn to be yourself.
I'm not a what-if and could-have person. I'm happy with my decisions.
I have a lot of road rage. Mostly with the rickshaw and cab drivers trying to cut me; it's the traffic. Grrrr!
I've punched a fan in the face because he was obnoxious.
I've also pinched a child and made him cry, but I was 10 then!
I can understand going for Botox at 45-50, when you want to keep things in place. But I don't understand 25 year olds going for Botox or under the knife. You don't require it. Your skin is fresh, young. Why would you do that to yourself?
I love my body. And, I'm always working out. I'm an exercise freak, be it cardio, weights, t'ai chi or yoga.
Financially, I do not need to work unless I want to, and whatever film I accept has to be right for me in the sense that it should justify the time I spend away from my husband and kids.
I won't ever direct a film. And I certainly won't write an autobiography. Only self-obsessed people want to write or talk about themselves!
Hand washing is the first basic step towards achieving any millennium goals for development. It saves lives.
Motherhood is an amazing feeling, and if you get to relive those special moments while working, it works as an icing on the cake. Kids have always been close to my heart, and working with them is a pleasure for me.
Every parent craves for a child, and once their wishes come true, they feel that it's not possible for them to love anyone more that the first born. But the fact is, after you have the second issue, the feeling is, how can I not love the kid?
I don't think any actor can be satisfied.
I am still in the learning phase and I hope I am always in the same frame of mind when I act or do anything else. That's what makes life interesting and worth living.
I'd love sloth. I wish sloth would come home and visit me once in a while. I don't consider laziness a sin at all.
I know what my comfort zones are. But without a back-up, I will never step out of my comfort zone. I don't go bungee jumping; I won't jump from the third floor without a safety net. I don't do such things. That's not my personality type.
Going out at night and having a fabulous social life takes a lot out of you, and I don't know if I have that much to give, honestly. I would rather give that time to my kids or spend that time reading a book or watching a film. I am selfish and lazy.
I am mean; I'm nasty at times. I don't feel like talking to people at times. When I am in a bad mood and have had a really awful day, don't come in my face because I am not tolerant and I am not a goddess; I can't handle it after a point. I am going to get up, and I am going to scream, and I am going to say bad things to you.
One thing I am sure of is that I won't judge a dance reality show.
I believe in my privacy. I always have, and I always will. I don't think that my private life needs to be on display for me to get a better response at the box office or for me to get a better choice of movies.
Every film that I have done has been woman-centric, because I am in it.
I spend five times more money at a chemist shop than I would at a fashion boutique. Clothes shopping is optional for me; shopping at a chemist store is a must.
For me, men and women are different. A man is genetically gifted to pull more than a woman. But at the same time, I don't consider women to be any less than men. In fact, I feel we are far more intelligent than them.
The only thing that works is a good script!
My mother [actress Tanuja] has taught me that.
It's 100 percent home or 100 percent work - I give complete attention to both. That's because I understand that work is not my life, and my life is not just work.
I sincerely believe that no problem is bigger than man, and problems are blown out of proportion by man himself.
As far as expectations go, you can never work for expectations. You have to work against them.
Let's be realistic - 90% of superheroes are male.
Personally, I prefer Superman, Batman and Spider-Man to Wonder Woman. Not that I don't like female superheroes, but watching male superheroes gives me a high.
I am anyway acting all the time with my bacche log (kids), so I do not miss it at all!
Shah Rukh is as passionate and as enthusiastic as ever.
When I was 13 or 14, my mother used to gift me books that I was dying to read.
Those are my most memorable birthday gifts.
I want to have a great director, and also a great producer and co-stars.
And there should be a tight script. After all, regardless of how the film turns out, I must have fun doing the film!
I tell my daughter Nyssa, you should respect my work and I will also respect yours when you grow up, "Work is worship" is what I have told her.
Everyone has the right to their lives and to look the way they want to! Tomorrow I can put on 25 kilos it's my choice, my body!
I have the greatest respect for Mr. Rishi Kapoor - he's simply amazing and also Sridevi. I personally think that is what acting IS about! If you have tapped into your talent, you should be trained enough to access it easily!
I'd say working on television is much, much tougher than films.
But television has a great connect with a live audience, which is a refreshing change for us actors.
I am a very strict mother, and as a mother, it's my responsibility to guide my kids and tell them to go how far and no further. There should be rules and guidelines for the kids, and they should know their limits.
There are times when marriage is not such a comfortable place But you find your way; you become a different person. You grow into it. And you have to work at marriage every day.
If you want to lose weight, you have to be obsessed with it.
You can't depend upon your dietician, your trainer or various health aids that you have. You have to be organised. And believe me, it isn't that difficult. The first 10 days are terrible because you have to break the lifelong habits that you have made.
If I read in a paper that somebody has said something about me, I'm going to take it with a pinch of salt; I really am!
I am thrilled that DDLJ has beaten all records, Shah Rukh Khan and I share a close friendship that translates onto the screen. We have such fun working together. Shah Rukh has a great sense of humour. He invests incredible energy into his acting. He reads a lot. I share all these with him. I love books. I love his style of working and abundant refinement. I love him to death and would like to work with him again.
My kids are in front of the computer 247 despite having all the parental control. There is no way to stop the flow of information. The flow of information is too fast and too much.
I think Shah Rukh and I have done essentially romantic films that had great contributions from everyone else, so it's not as if we alone are responsible for our hits.
I am simply not interested in the pots and pans affair, and neither can I bring myself to be interested in the same. I have such great cooks in the family that I would rather manage the other affairs and leave the kitchen to those who know it best.
I do not want these women-centric films, or.
.. what's that term? ...mahila-pradhan films as everyone calls them.
If you recognize a face while surfing through 200 channels, you will stop and listen. Celebrities give a positive aura and people like them. Their message appeals to people.
If I like something, I will pick it up from anywhere and wear it.
I don't believe that only branded stuff looks good on you. If it doesn't look good in my eyes, I'll never wear it.
If you say one gets influenced watching a character, I think its foolish.
Cinema reflects society; society rarely reflects cinema.
Earlier, my priority was only work. I worked like a dog before I got married. After marriage, once you have a baby, time management is difficult. Your responsibilities change, your priorities change. And you have to concentrate on them if you have to work out your life. Your career is just a part of your life. For me, my family is my life.
My only reason why I am not doing films is my children.
My children need my attention, and it's my duty to give them my time. I have not given birth to them to just dump them and go off to work. I am not that kind of a person.
