Kajol may be an idol for many but the actor says it took her a long time to accept that she is beautiful. “A lot of things have changed over the years, but now I believe that I am beautiful. It took me a long time to believe that. So my beliefs about myself have changed, and I think I am a better person today. I have grown, hopefully,” she added.
Kajol says her husband Ajay Devgn compliments her rarely and only when she looks exceptionally stunning. “Ajay compliments me when I look exceptionally stunning. He would say ‘You are looking nice’, and that’s it,” she said.

The actor wants to be a mirror image of her mother Tanuja when she is her age. “For me, my inspiration has been my mother. I would like to look like her when I am her age. She doesn’t look one bit her age. I feel teenagers are beautiful, but women are just stunning. Teenagers are pretty and cute and they would like that term. They like to describe themselves like that. As people grow older, whatever is inside them comes out, and that is the true beauty,” she added.
Kajol said she drinks a lot of water to keep her skin hydrated. “There aren’t any beauty secrets when family is concerned. We are just genetically beautiful. One thing I tell this to everyone is be absolutely clean and neat, drink lots of water and wash your face three times a day,” said the mother of two.
On the work front, she has signed up a film with the “Ship of Theseus” director Anand Gandhi and refuses to differentiate between films as mainstream cinema or art cinema. The actress, who was last seen in Rohit Shetty directorial “Dilwale” opposite Shah Rukh Khan, said, “I don’t agree with this thinking completely. There is nothing which can be called as mainstream or art film. There are only good films and bad films.”
“We make films so that audience can enjoy it, leave their troubles behind, and lose themselves into that story and those characters. And I believe I am going to make good films,” she said.

Gandhi has written and directed critically acclaimed plays like “Sugandhi”, “Pratyancha”, “Kshanotsav, Na and Janashtaru” and a Gujarati play “Chal Reverse Ma Jaiye”. The movie will be an adaptation of one of his plays and Kajol’s husband and actor Ajay Devgn will produce it.
