After dubbing for the Hindi version of Disney.Pixar’s “Incredibles 2”, actress Kajol says she is willing to explore the world of the West and work in a Hollywood film.

“I would love to do a Hollywood film. There is no particular genre in mind, and it depends whether the script appeals to me or not,” Kajol told IANS in a recorded response.

“I would ask the same questions that I would ask for a Hindi film before picking the project,” added the mother of two.

Kajol has lent her voice to the character of Helen Parr, Elastigirl. The sequel picks up right after the 2004 original, with Craig T. Nelson returning as the voice of Bob Parr, Holly Hunter as Elastigirl and Samuel L. Jackson as Frozone. Brad Bird, who voices fashion designer Edna Mode, is back to direct the project.

The sequel again deals with the Parr family attempting balance having a normal life with their superhero powers. The film is slated to release in India on June 22 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Kajol says her children were thrilled about her dubbing assignment.

“They were the most excited one especially when I told them that we will be the first ones to watch the film. It was like a big thing,” she said.

Kajol and Ajay Devgn, who got married in 1999, are parents to two children — daughter Nysa and son Yug. She is known for projects like “Karan Arjun”, “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge”, “Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya”, “Ishq”, “Dushman”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…”.

Be it “Avengers: Infinity War” or “Spider-Man” series, “Iron Man” or “Wonder Woman” — superhero movies are performing well at the Indian box office.

“The popularity of superheroes has increased over time owing to the fact that it is digital age. There is so much flow of information. Everybody has access to the entire international fraternity which they didn’t have earlier.

“I Believe in Good Films And Scripts, Not In Women-Oriented Films”: Kajol

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)
