“They have not had great childhoods.
Bollywood actress, Kajol, has candidly spoken about her parents’ divorce when she was just 4-years-old.
Her parents, Shomu Mukherjee and Tanuja parting ways did not have a negative effect on the actress’ life.
In fact, Kajol stated that she had an “amazing upbringing” despite her parents’ separation at such a young age.
Although she cannot fault her upbringing, Kajol acknowledges that her life could have turned out to be very difficult.
The actress appeared on a special episode of Netflix’s Behensplaining. She revealed:
“I had the most amazing upbringing ever. I am very lucky to have been brought up by such a forward-thinking, amazing person who taught me so much about life, growing up and about being an adult from the time that I was a child.
“But I totally get if it had gone even slightly wrong what it would have been like.”
Kajol continued to mention although her parents’ split, she knows people who are not happy despite their parents being together. She explained:
“My parents separated when I was about four and a half years old and it could have gone very wrong.
“I have so many friends whose parents are together till today but not in the best spaces.
“They have not had great childhoods. I loved my father separately, I loved my mother separately and I loved them together as well.”
Kajol went on to joke about never being able to play her parents against each other. She amusingly said:
“I’ve tried very hard but both my parents were too smart. They are too evolved. Damn!”
Now all grown up, Kajol is herself a married woman and a proud mother to two children; Nysa and Yug.
Kajol has been married to fellow film actor Ajay Devgn for more than two decades.
In January 2020, Kajol opened up about her marriage with Ajay Devgn. In an emotional post, she wrote:
“We met 25 years ago, on the sets of Hulchull 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 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!”
Kajol and Ajay are known as one of the best couples in Bollywood.
On the work front, the couple was last seen together in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior (2020).
