Happy birthday Kajol…
The 90’s era is unthinkable without Kajol’s presence. She was the queen of the 90’s. Who would have brought hits like Ishq, DDLJ, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Gupt, Baazigar, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha except Kajol? In her career, the flexible actress has won many accolades. Though I say she should have won each time she was nominated for an award but that is just my undying love for her. Celebrating her 42nd birthday with her, let’s reenter to her awards winning performances throughout the years.
A number of best performances by Kajol, excluding Dilwale, Ishq, Gupt and much more.
- Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001)
Kajol’s comic timing is flawless. Kajol’s shockingly funny dialogues in this movie such as “Kya musibat maine pala, ek taraf Rukshar aur ek taraf Khala” “Mujhe na tyre puncture karne me bada maza ata hai” and of course “Aa gayi kamini bachcha chodhne”. Only Kajol could have dragged off this role that not only claimed a weird comic timing but depth in emotions as well. Such dialogues are feed up on Dubsmash also and people keep doing Dubbing on her popular dialogues.
- Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1996)
The role that recognized Kajol. Kajol featured opposite Shah Rukh Khan in the iconic romantic film that is still running in a theater in Mumbai. This is the mystery of this beautiful film. The actress’ portrayal of a simple girl next door, could ring bells in any heart. I’ve heard it is imaginary of many men to extend their hand to a girl like Kajol running behind a train and help her board it, like in the film. Kajol’s graceful acting makes this role her most iconic one.
- Dushman (1998)
In this mind-twisting film written by Mahesh Bhatt, inspired by Eye for an Eye, Kajol plays a woman hell set to kill her twin sister’s murderer. Ashutosh Rana plays the villain in this scary epic. The fight between Kajol and Ashutosh keeps you at the edge of your seat. And the acting of Kajol gets claps and it will also bring you to tears.
- My Name Is Khan (2010)
In this 9/11 outcome story, Kajol plays a mother, whose son dies in a discrimination attack. She blames her autistic husband, played by Shah Rukh Khan, for the suffering, as only after marrying him she became and her son took the last name, Khan. We dare you to stop your eyes from scratching up when Kajol breaks down in a scene after her son’s death.
- Fanaa (2007)
Kajol plays a blind woman who falls in love with a terrorist, played by Aamir Khan. So you know the depth that this character must have demanded. The actress gives this film het best. In the end. Spoiler Alert when she kills Aamir, oh boy you should see her act! It’s like she was born for this role.
- Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1999)
The tomboy girl in college and the best friend of Rahul, who secretly loves Rahul so much and afraid of telling him. Her looks in a start of a tomboy girl during college and later to perfect women wins millions of hearts.
