“I never wanted to be an actor actually. I didn’t think of it was worth the money that was being paid out. I didn’t think it was worth the effort and I definitely thought my mother worked too hard for whatever she was doing and however we were at that point of time,” Kajol said.
The actress added that she told her mother Tanuja — a veteran actress — that she wanted a “paycheck at the end of the month”.
Kajol says she found Bollywood a very erratic industry and acting an erratic profession.

“As an entertainer, I would love to reach out and entertain as many people as possible. I choose films where the entire family can go and watch them together in a theatre.

“It’s a film that will touch the hearts of audiences and also entertain them to the fullest. I can’t wait for people to watch Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ because it is a story that everyone will connect to,” he added.
He says “Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan” is a film that had to be made because of the impact that it can have on society.
“It is an important film that had to be made and when I heard the narration, I was bowled over immediately with the impact it had on me. It’s funny, quirky, important from a social messaging point of view and it keeps one invested and engaged completely. It’s not everyday that you find a film like ï¿½Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan’ and I’m proud to be a part of this project,” he said. (Bollywood Country)
