Shahrukh Khan and Kajol are certainly one of the most loved jodis of all times, no one can take that away from them. They’ve given us memorable films like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaenge, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and many more. On one hand, while Khan is still romancing women on screen, Kajol chooses to do lesser films and not all involve romance.
Kajol talks about Shahrukh Khan and romance
Asked if she holds grudges against Khan for romancing other women, she said, “I don’t grudge Shah Rukh as the king of romance. It takes someone as special as him to be able to sell that. For me, to be able to work it out film-wise will be difficult. I am not as technical an actor as him. I have always preferred being cozy in my space.”
Does she feel that the meaning of love has changed? “The way people look at romance and what they believe of romance has changed drastically. I don’t think people believe in the idea of ‘forever’ anymore. People have forevers with multiple people these days. The idea of knowing that there’s only one special person for you is a risky one.”
She added, “People now have enough choices to have a swayamvar if they want. Of course, I am an old-school romantic. Romcoms work well because stories don’t have their fairytale edge. Who is dreamy anymore? Women used to believe that Prince Charming would come riding on his horse. Girls these days expect that the horse will break down and he will land up on a turtle.”
