Happy Birthday Kajol: 10 Blockbuster films that proves why we totally Love Kajol




New Delhi, Aug 5: Tanuja’s talented daughter and actress Kajol turns 43 years old. The feisty actress has always worked on her own terms, never tried being a size zero or a fashionable diva, the actress even sported an unibrow on the big screen for the longest time.

25 years into acting and still Kajol continues to be known as the talented actress fans can’t get enough of. She debuted in 1992 film Bekhudi opposite Kamal Sadanah, but her most popular pairing has been with Shah Rukh Khan.

During the 90s, she was the reigning queen of the film industry thanks to her superb performances in movies like Gupt, Dushman, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge to name a few, before tying the knot with Ajay Devgn in 1999. Most of her hits are with Bollywood’s King of Romance, Shah Rukh Khan. Together they have created magic on screen with their palpable chemistry. As the actress turns a year older today (August 5), we bring to you a list of five of her best movies, that prove why she is considered one of the most versatile actresses of her generation.

Holding a record of the maximum number of wins in the Filmfare Best Actress category, five to be precise, Kajol has won 6 Filmfare awards in her career so far and has also been awarded the title of Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour of the country.

Happy being Mrs Ajay Devgn and mother of Nysa and Yug, the actress is rarely seen on the big screen. After pairing opposite SRK in Rohit Shetty’s 2015 film the actress will be seen in Dhanush’s Tamil film VIP 2 this year.

While her fans are eagerly waiting for her next film, where she plays another author backed role, here’s looking at 10 of Kajol’s most memorable movies that have all made her the star that she is:



This was the first time when Shah Rukh and Kajol shared the 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. And who can forget her dancing to Baazigar O Baazigar in her pink, satin outfit?


dushmanCertainly one of her best performances, Dushman had Kajol in a double role, playing twin sisters. When one of the sisters is brutally raped and murdered, the other decides to take revenge from the rapist. To say that Kajol was excellent in both the roles would be an understatement. She perfectly depicted, first the contrast between the two sisters, and then the vulnerability and angst of the second sister.

Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

This was a turning point in Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s life which instantly made them favourites among the audiences. DDLJ portrayed Kajol as Simran, a character who represented the set of girls who were born and brought up in an orthodox family. If not for Raj & Simran, we probably wouldn’t even know what it’s like to fall in love. DDLJ is also the film that won Kajol her first Filmfare Best Actress Award.

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai

One of the biggest films of Kajol’s career, Karan Johar’s directorial debut had her paired yet again with SRK. When Shah Rukh says ‘Pyaar dosti hai’, while it seemed a bit unbelievable, Kajol as Anjali proved that it’s true. One can find their life partners in their best friends.

Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha

A remake of French Kiss, this film brought out Kajol’s excellent comic timing, as she scored yet another superhit to her credit. The film had her joining hands with a stranger, who’s unknown to her is trying to steal a piece of jewellery using her bag, to make her boyfriend jealous. She shared a wonderful chemistry with Ajay Devgn in the movie.

Kabhie Khushi Kabhie Gham

This fim saw the Karan Johar-SRK-Kajol trio back with a bang as the film was an instant blockbuster. The family drama had Kajol playing an irreverent girl from humble beginnings falling in love with a millionaire’s son, that divides an entire family. She won her third Filmfare Best Actress award for this one.



Making her comeback after 5 years, Kajol played a blind girl in Fanaa who falls in love with a tourist guide who’s actually an undercover terrorist. The film also saw her romantically paired opposite Aamir Khan for the first time. The film was a major success and fetched Kajol another Best Actress award.

My Name is Khan


Yet another extremely brave movie, ‘My Name is Khan’ touched upon the discrimination faced by US-based Muslims post the ‘9/11’ terror attacks. Reuniting the much loved Shah Rukh-Kajol pair, it managed to floor critics and audiences alike, helping the actress take home the coveted ‘Black Lady’ (Filmfare Award) yet again.

Gupt: The Hidden Truth


This film is certainly one of the better whodunits to have come out of Bollywood. And Kajol’s shocking revelation as the killer was what totally owned the movie. Such was her impact as the negative lead that everyone came out of the film shell-shocked. Needless to say, she even won the Filmfare Award for Best Performance in a Negative Role.



Her first major hit with then-boyfriend, now-husband Ajay Devgn, this multi-starrer had Kajol as the film’s emotional core. From slapstick comedy in the first half to melodramatic in the second, the film changes gears swiftly and Kajol aces both these turns like how!

WeForNews Wishes Bollywood’s favourite Simran and the heartbeat of a million fans a very Happy Birthday!

Marital status doesn’t affect box office figures, says Rani Mukerji




Mumbai, March 24: Actress Rani Mukerji is overwhelmed with the response she has got for her comeback film “Hichki” and says that the kind of love audiences have showered on the movie proves that good cinema and performance is the only thing that matters and not marital status or parenthood.

Hichki Movie Review

“Hichki” marks Rani’s comeback to acting after a gap of four years. The film raked in Rs 3.30 crore on day one, a statement said.


Ecstatic over the response, Rani said: “All my life, I have tried to entertain, tried to spread love and happiness to my fans and audiences through my films. Their happiness made me happy, motivated me. Yesterday, I felt the same emotions that I had faced when my first film released.

“I was nervous. I was jittery. My first love is acting. Nothing gives me as much joy than being on the set of my film. I chose marriage when I wanted to.”

The actress, who has a daughter Adira, 2, says she chose motherhood and “I chose to prioritise these for four years before I again chose to return to my passion wanting to feel the rush of challenging myself with a truly remarkable role.”

On the first day of the film’s release, Rani felt like it was a “do or die test”.

“I did draw courage from the success stories of the outstanding artists who decided to settle down and then returned with great comebacks but deep down I was nervous that if I fail, I would be forever succumbing to the archaic stereotypes to the same hichkis that have been prevalent for so many years” she said.

“With the incredible love that audiences have showered on ‘Hichki’ and on me, they have proven that for them good cinema and good performance is the only thing that matters – not marital status, not parenthood,” added an emotional Rani.

The actress, 40, says that the audiences have celebrated working mothers and that she will be forever thankful to them.

In “Hichki”, Rani plays the character of Naina Mathur who suffers from Tourette syndrome that forces an individual to make involuntary repetitive movements or sounds.

The Siddharth P. Malhotra directorial focuses on turning disadvantages into opportunities and staring down at challenges that life throws at one and ultimately winning over them.

“This box office validation gives me incredible confidence to continue my journey as a working mother who can aim to balance her professional and personal life to a T,” Rani concluded.

Happy B’day Emraan Hashmi: 5 Films which proves he’s more than Bollywood’s serial kisser




New Delhi, March 24: It’s Emraan Hashmi’s birthday today. He is right now considered as one of the popular actors of Bollywood.

He was crowned as the ‘serial kisser’ in his initial years in Bollywood, especially after a slew of films such as ‘Murder’, ‘Zeher’, ‘Aashiq Banaya Aapne’ and ‘Gangster’.

Besides, carrying a serial kisser image, the actor also surprised everyone with his performances in the films like Gangster, Awarapan, Shanghai, Azhar, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Hamari Adhuri Kahani and so on.

He started his acting career with 2003 film Footpath but rose to fame with Murder. He has done a different kind of roles. From playing a playboy in Murder to portraying an ardent lover in Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Emraan never shied away from experimenting.

The nephew of Mahesh Bhatt, and cousin to Alia Bhatt, Hashmi is married to Praveen Shahani and has a son named Ayaan, who was born in 2010.

The actor has gone through a tragedy of life for his son Ayan. Reportedly, Emraan’s son Ayan had suffered from Cancer. Well, after finding that an 8-year-old son is having a deadly disease, Emraan and his wife Parveen fought hard to take him out of danger.



Finally, they beat cancer at a very first stage. We must say that Emraan Hashmi has experienced the worst nightmare of his life.

He is the man who, to a large extent, broke the conventional boundaries of what could be shown on screen with his steamy kisses and bedroom scenes. He is,however, first and foremost, a brilliant actor whose versatility is in the ability to adapt to the change his characters undergo within the film, and convey the depth of the plot, and romance the leading ladies in an erotic manner.

As the Versatile actor has turned 39 today, here’s his 5 best roles which proved the actor was a performer and not just a kisser!

1. Gangster

The under-cover policeman: Hashmi first played this role in ‘Gangster’, but goes on to play this type of character in ‘Jannat 2’ as well. Both roles are vastly different from each other.

From a lounge singer to an undercover cop, Hashmi makes a sly switch from smitten to self-seeking in the deftly executed Gangster.And his performance was worthy of an applause.

2. Awarapan

This one remains as one of the most favorite movies of Hashmi ‘the performer’. Directed by Mohit Suri, Awarapan in 2007 broke the kissing jinx for Hashmi and put him in the business as one angry young fella willing to take a chance with life.

If you really haven’t watched this comforting piece of cinema, go watch it for its amazing music, dialogues and the beautiful background score.

3. Jannat

In the classic tale of greed and destruction, Hashmi plays a match fixer engaging in all kinds of frauds to make fast cash. How it eventually ruins his personal life is what the drama with a breezy soundtrack is all about.

Despite the predictability of it all, Hashmi’s roguish grin and flaky manners make it work.

4. Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai

Making a mark in front of an actor like Ajay Devgn is not an easy task, but Emraan played the role of Shoeb brilliantly. The actor was amazing in this film, but as it was a massy film, his acting talent was ignored.

5. Hamari Adhuri Kahani

This is the best of Emraan Hashmi till date. A matured role performed wonderfully by the actor. Believe us, if not awards, the actor at least deserved Best Actor awards nomination.

The way he had handled his character, we are sure every woman would have fallen for him. But, ‘HAK’ was a flop at the box office, and once again Emraan didn’t get his due appreciation as an actor.

Here’s wishing the loverboy Emraan Hashmi a very Happy Birthday!!

Important for celebrities to speak up, bring change: Deepika Padukone



Deepika Padukone
Actress Deepika Padukone at the launch of a survey conducted by The Live Love Laugh (TLLLFoundation) Foundation in New Delhi, on March 23, 2018.

New Delhi, March 24: As multiple Bollywood films are celebrating how weaknesses can be turned into strengths, leading actress Deepika Padukone says it is important for celebrities to use their place of influence and power to bring about change in society.

“I think it is extremely important for those who are in positions of influence or power to bring about social change. It is extremely important for them to speak up about whatever issue it might be,” Deepika told news agency IANS in interview.

Of late, film actors and filmmakers are attempting storylines which have a strong underlying message that can bring change in society. The latest example is Rani Mukerji’s “Hichki”, which talks about how a woman with Tourette Syndrome, a neuropsychiatric disorder, makes it her strength and becomes a teacher.

Deepika, one of Bollywood’s top-earning actresses, believes people can see if you do not have genuine connect or if it is not authentic.

“For many years, people always said, ‘You know you are successful, you should do work in social sectors as well or associate with an NGO’. There were so many options (for me), but I didn’t feel like I was being honest to them.

“It didn’t come naturally to me until I came across mental health, also because of my personal experience,” said the actress, who had earlier opened up about her battle with depression.

She feels speaking up for a cause has to be an “organic” process.

“I don’t think there is any fixed time as to when one should do it. I think you should do it when you feel it is right.”

Deepika was here along with her mother and younger sister to launch a report on Public Perception Towards Mental Health in India by her foundation The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF), which aims to reduce the stigma around mental health.

The report’s findings indicate that a majority of people feel that mental illness is still considered a severe disorder like schizophrenia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

But are celebrities not more prone to depression and stress, especially when they are constantly under the scanner, more so with the emergence of social media?

“No. I think I have understood the correlation between consumption of social media and when it helps. I always believed that whatever you consume, you consume in moderation.

“If you consume too much, it could have various sorts of impact, not just on your mental health but physical health too. I know people who are up at social media in the wee hours and probably letting it eat up their sleep time.

“As long as anything that you consume, whether it is social media or otherwise, is done in moderation, and you are aware about your social health, I think you are on the right path,” said the 32-year-old.

At the end of the day, the only thing that matters to her is “peace of mind”.

Deepika said she wants to see India as the happiest nation in the world.

“My vision for the Foundation is that we become the happiest country in the world. I see Bhutan having their happiness minister, and even some of the Scandinavian countries have the highest rate of mental happiness and I want India to be there, sooner or later,” she signed off.
