Bollywood superstar Kajol, who has been one of the favourite actresses of Yash Raj Films with films like ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’ and ‘Fanaa’, says the tussle between her husband Ajay Devgn’s production house and YRF affected her relationship with the latter.
“Yes, it affected my relationship. But that was a situation which had come out of ordinary. It was not a normal situation… It doesn’t occur normally. It doesn’t happen everyday… Hopefully, it will not happen in future again,” said Kajol on the sidelines of Agenda Aaj Tak’s session ‘Supertar-Supermom-to Superstar’.
The controversy began when ADF filed a complaint in the Competition Commission Of India (CCI) alleging that YRF used its dominant position in the market to get maximum screens for ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, which resulted in Devgn’s ‘Son of Sardaar’ not finding enough screens.
The 38-year-old actress married Devgn at the peak of her career and currently raises two children with him but that has not affected her demand in Bollywood.
Kajol, who starred in hits like ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’ post her marriage, said she is happy to see the industry going through a positive change.
“Time has changed in the industry. It’s a good time for women because people are willing to experiment now. Even our audience are bound to think and want something different. It’s a fantastic time for women in the industry as directors are taking a risk with them,” she said.
But she still feels that industry is being dominated by male actors. “I agree that it’s a perfect time for an actress to be in the industry but I still feel it’s male dominated. You can’t take away the male domination on the basis of female-oriented films doing good business in the box-office,” she added.
When politician Lalu Prasad Yadav asked her about the vulgar content in today’s films, Kajol said, “I agree with you. Being a mother, I also face difficulty to watch some films with my kids. But I feel that cinema reflect our society and its changes.”
