'I like to balance everything'

'I like to balance everything'

Dedicated Kajol

“I like it and am very happy. Instead of trying to live up to people’s expectations, I feel I should continue to depend upon what I feel is right. I am an instinctive person and not a planner,” said Kajol, who will be next seen in We are Family, Karan Johar’s Hindi remake of Stepmom.

The actress, who plays a mother of three in the movie, said, “I don’t deny my age and I want to do what I am today. I don’t intend to play a 16-year-old on screen. After marriage, a woman’s priorities change and it is normal. I consider it as a progression and not
stopping your life.Work is part of your life. I like to balance everything. Too much of everything is not good. I was always picky and choosy,” Kajol said on her movie selection.

Speaking about Stepmom, Kajol said she watched the  Julia Roberts-Susan Sarandon starrer many years ago and did not see it again after signing the movie, which has been directed by Sidharth Malhotra and is releasing on September 3. “I didn’t want Stepmom to influence me. Maya is a different character from the original one. Yet there are similarities,” she said.
