Bollywood actress Kajol celebrates her 43rd birthday on August 5 and the timeless beauty also completes 25 glorious years in cinema this year. Talented actress Kajol made the 90s a golden era for movie lovers.
She started her career in Bollywood with Bekhudi, which released in 1992. But she was highly appreciated for her next big venture Baazigar, which hit the screens in 1993. Since then, she has been seen in different types of characters with SRK which established her as a powerful actress in Bollywood. Here are some movies of this pair which made the audience fall in love with them over and over again.
This was the first time when Shah Rukh and Kajol shared screen space. If Shah Rukh as a murderer made a strong impact in the industry, Kajol as a sister taking revenge for the murder of her own sister (Shilpa Shetty) appeared just about right to the audience.
While the film is an iconic one to watch even now, it was a musical hit as well. From “Yeh Kaali Kaali Aankhein” to “Baazigar oh Baazigar”, every song was a chart buster.
Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
This movie was a turning point in Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s lives, and instantly made them favourites among the audience. DDLJ portrayed Kajol as Simran, a character who represented the set of girls who were born and brought up in an orthodox family. It was a time when settling down in overseas was a matter of pride but also gave a sense of tension and separation. So, when Kajol and her family’s background was introduced, it instantly connected with people in India who missed their relatives in other countries.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
After making us believe in eternal love stories, SRK and Kajol, with this Karan Johar film, presented the kind of love people had started to believe in – the love that’s found within friendship.
When Shah Rukh says “love is friendship,” Kajol as Anjali proved that people can find their life partners in their best friends.
Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
After being a complete tom-boy in her last film, Anjali came back as a girl from Chandni Chowk, who wasn’t afraid of what will happen next, lived life to the fullest and loved her family. Even though she was all of this, her values were something that made her a favourite among the audience. We really cannot imagine someone else playing Kajol’s character in this film.
My Name Is Khan
Kajol in this film showcased a woman’s power, and how her love knows no religion or race. While the society was making fun of a man suffering from autism, Kajol’s character understood the humanity and love he carried within himself. She taught us that there’s always something to cherish in moments which are ordinary.
