Bollywood megastar Kajol has opened about how patriarchal challenges did not bother her in personal and professional life.
While talking about her upcoming movie “Tribhanga” in an interview, the DDLJ actress told how she resonated with her character “Anu” in the film.
“If I don’t filter my words, Anu is 10 steps ahead of me,” she said, adding: “Though it was tiring to play her, it was not difficult to understand her.”
She also opened up about working on a women-centric film,
“The best thing about being on set with such strong women was that there was no insecurity.”
“My father [Shomu Mukherjee] was against me getting married at 24. He said that I should work more before I tie the knot. My mom [Tanuja] was my biggest supporter and told me to go with my gut. I have been lucky that everybody around has always stood up for me. So, I did exactly what I wanted to do,” she said.
“My mother made me independent, and my daughter is as independent as I am,” she added.
