Cinephiles were relieved to learn that Kajol would return with a Bollywood outing after two years when news of her next venture hit headlines in November. The Pradeep Sarkar-directed outing will see her as a single mother. Now, sources have revealed further details about her character -- the actor will play an aspiring singer in the Ajay Devgn production.
Talking about the venture, tentatively titled Ela, the source says, "Kajol plays the role of a young woman, who loves to sing. She aspires to become famous, but is forced to get married instead. A turmoil in the relationship forces her to leave her husband and raise her son as a single parent. Later, she enhances her singing skills and eventually gets appreciated for her craft."
Work on the venture, an adaptation of Anand Gandhi's Gujarati play, Beta, Kaagdo (Son, Crow), will kick-off next month. Devgn and co-producer Abhinav Shukla have purchased the rights for a cinematic adaptation. "The team is currently looking for a suitable cast for the role of the son."
