Kajol looks beyond women-centric roles for Bollywood comeback

Last Updated 20 March 2014, 19:13 IST

Bollywood actress Kajol is excited to return to the silver screen in husband Ajay Devgn's next but doing only women-oriented roles is not her priority.

Kajol, 39, has green-lighted a film to be produced by Ajay Devgn's home production. Contrary to the trend of women being the protagonist in contemporary films, Kajol feels good script essentially makes a good movie.

"The script has to be good. I don't look whether (the film) is women-oriented or not because I believe everyone contributes for the film and not just one person. It is about everybody in the film. The script has to be fabulous," Kajol told PTI in an exclusive interview here.

Kajol said the home venture may take-off by year-end.

She said to get married and have kids was her conscious decision.

"There was dream to be a mother. I think it was very well spent time with my kids. My kids are wonderful and I have a big hand in it," she said.

Kajol took a sabbatical when she was at the peak of her career.

"It was the right time for me and I don't regret it (the decision) at all. For me, all my decisions have been taken at the right time only. There is no ifs and buts for me," she said.

The film that Ajay would be producing is in news for quite some time but Kajol is in no mood to disclose details.

"I hope it will be both serious and entertaining. We have an idea on hand but it is too early to talk about it. When we start shooting the film then we can say a bit about it," the actress said.

When asked how heroines discontinue their Bollywood career after certain age but the male actors continue to work even after the age of 40, Kajol said things will change.

"I feel we have less ideas. And our audience wants to watch only certain kind of cinema, however this is changing now. This is the time for new age cinema. The audience is changing and our longevity will increase," she said.
