Actress Kajol, who is gearing up for the release of her forthcoming film “Helicopter Eela”, says she does not believe in women-oriented films but believes in good films and scripts.

Kajol interacted with the media at the trailer launch of “Helicopter Eela”, along with her co-actors Riddhi Sen, Neha Dhupia, director Pradeep Sarkar and producers Ajay Devgn and Jayantilal Gada here on Sunday.

Actresses like Vidya Balan and Rani Mukerji have turned their focus on women-oriented films by doing projects like “Tumhari Sulu”, “Kahaani” series and “Hichki” and “Mardani” respectively.

Asked if she is also focusing on that zone, she said: “I don’t believe in women-oriented films. I believe in good films and scripts. I would say the same for my counterparts — whether it is Vidya Balan or Rani Mukerji for that matter.

“I think they both believe in good scripts. It doesn’t matter whether you are the whole and soul of the film or not. What matters is, what you are doing in the film and it matters what kind of films you are working in.”

In “Helicopter Eela”, Kajol plays an obsessive mother who continuously keeps a tab on her son’s activities.

Asked if she finds any similarity between her and her character in the film, Kajol said: “I think most mothers are like Eela. Indian moms generally… all of us are Eela, but the degree of obsession can change from one mother to another.”

“Helicopter Eela” deals with modern-day parenting.

Praising her husband Ajay, Kajol spoke about how he used to take care of their children — daughter Nysa and son Yug — when she was busy shooting for the film.

“I think ‘Helicopter Eela’ has come at the right time because when you talk about parenting, it is not necessary that only the mother teaches her children, but it’s beautiful and wonderful that now many fathers are actually getting involved in their children’s lives.

“They are loving and enjoying it for a change so. I have to say that during ‘Helicopter Eela’, when I was shooting or I was out of town, Ajay (Devgn) made sure that he was in town to take care of kids and put them into their beds. I think that’s what today’s parenting is all about.”

Written by Mitesh Shah, the movie is co-produced by Ajay Devgn and Jayantilal Gada of Pen India Ltd. “Helicopter Eela” is slated to release on September 7. (IANS)

Actors Ajay Devgan and Kajol on Saturday urged people to segregate plastic from daily garbage in a way that it can be utilised to make a recycled product.

The couple came together to support an initiative taken by Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) at the Mahim Creek. As part of HUL’s “Start a Little Good”, a plastic collection drive named “Plastic Banega Fantastic” has begun.

Talking about how effective recycling plastic could be, Kajol said: “We will be giving fishing nets to fisherfolks, and those are made out of recycled plastic… We will give them a park bench that is made out of recycled plastic and many such things. Basically, the idea is to show them products that we can make out of recycled plastic and also usable for daily life.”

“When they see what you can do in a productive manner to segregate plastics out of daily days, people will hopefully take the step seriously,” added the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai actress.

Asked if the government’s Swachch Bharat initiative is bringing any visible change in the surroundings, Ajay said: “We have a large population and it takes time to change people’s habits. There are people who throw garbage everywhere and with constant talks, people will become aware of how such things are harming the planet.”

As parents, Ajay and Kajol both believe that bringing little changes can create a big difference in children’s lives and that is how they can bring about a change in the future generation.

Any special things they teach their two children?

Ajay said: “Small things like not wasting water, switching off the light and all electric gadgets when it’s not used. At times kids just waste tissue papers just for fun, and I keep saying not to do that. From their childhood, if we can inculcate these habits in them, it will become a part of their lifestyle.

“Like my son carries a steal tiffin box instead of plastic. We use steel bottles and straw instead of plastic… I know these are very small thing, but as Ajay says these things slowly but surely change the big picture. These things will make them much responsible citizens of the world,” said Kajol.

The event saw a a beach cleaning session by Ajay and Kajol along with popular radio jockey Malishka Mendonsa.

On the initiative, HUL Chairman Sanjiv Mehta told IANS: “While the invention of plastic is great, the problem started with its waste, used material. Since we all are using plastic and it is an integral part of our life, as people, we have to use it responsibly.
