I refused 3 Idiots as I was not happy with the role I was offered : Kajol
It might surprise you to know that everyone's idol Kajol, also has an idol. It is none other than the diva Sridevi. In an interview to Hindustan Times, Kajol opens up about her favorites in the industry, about Raju Hirani's 3 Idiots and also about her getting back in shape! Here are some interesting excerpts:
Why did you refuse 3 Idiots?
Lots of female actors say that you are their idol. Who is yours?
You never spent so much time on your appearance as you seem to do now. Any particular reason for this?
Suddenly people are noticing the brands you wear and how you look, something I find very absurd. In my entire life, I have never bothered about what brand I wore, let alone what other people wore. All these things were irrelevant. But being a movie star, how can you escape the ‘brand wagon’? You won’t believe it, but I am still not brand conscious. 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.
Kajol’s fave actors
Ajay Devgan: Truly impressed by his acting range. From serious roles to out and out comedy, from romantic to rowdy, Ajay’s displayed great talent always.
Shah Rukh Khan: Willing to take risks and do something different. Good actor.
Salman Khan: One of the most intelligent people I have met. By far the biggest contemporary superstar in the industry, yet so untouched by stardom. The way he delivers his dialogues is a reflection of his real self — casual and carefree.
Aamir Khan: Supremely talented and intelligent. A great marketing genius. Always puts on a new hat.
Akshay Kumar: Evolved fantastically. I remember he was working with my mother in Deedar (1992). I was very young then. When mom would tell us about Akshay Kumar the star, our jaws would drop. He has made it super big in the industry without any major backing. And he’s still the same warm Akshay.
