Kajol silent on SOS row, says has cordial relations with YRF
Bollywood actor Kajol, caught in the middle of a spat between her husband Ajay Devgn and Yash Raj Films, today said she did not know what to say about the issue
Ajay had moved the Competition Commission of India last year, claiming that Yash Raj Films was using its dominant position to ask exhibitors to dedicate more screens for Yash Chopra's last directorial venture 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan', at the cost of Devgn's 'Son of Sardaar'. Both released on the same day around Diwali. There were reports that Kajol, who has been a part of some hugely successful YRF films in her career, was not invited to the premiere of 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' following this.
"I share a cordial... normal relation with them (YRF). Whenever we meet we have normal relation," Kajol said at a 'FICCI Frames' event here, where she was interviewed by filmmaker Karan Johar, her friend. Kajol has delivered the blockbuster 'Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge' and 'Fanaa' under the YRF banner. When asked how she deals with this spat between her husband and YRF, Kajol said, "It is something that happens in life - one deals with it.
I don't know what to say about this. I think people can play it, but nicely and quietly." The 38-year-old actress said she was happy to see the industry going through a positive change. "In the past we have seen actresses like Sharmila Tagore, Saira Banu and others working after marriage. So there is no big deal about it.
But yes there is a boundary as one can't do certain things after marriage," said Kajol, who married Ajay at the peak of her career. "Today time has changed in the industry. It's a good time for actresses to be here because people are willing to experiment... people are willing to take risk."
