Kajol revealed that she was once opposed to marriage, but that changed when she met Ajay Devgn. She admitted that his relatability drew her in and that she liked the sense of security he provided.
During a conversation with Twinkle Khanna for Tweak India, Kajol said, “I was the kind of person before I got married that I would never have gotten married. I always felt that I would be one of those people who somebody would have to hold a shotgun to my head to make me get married. ‘Get married otherwise, I will blow your head off’ that kind of thing. I was one of those.”
“But eventually when I met Ajay, I think that he just gave me such a sense of stability. He is such a grounded person. He is like a wall, a rock, so I think that’s something that I really believe. I knew for a fact that he would not leave me and I would not want to leave him either. So I think I found the right person pretty early,” she added.
On the set of Hulchul (1995), Ajay and Kajol met for the first time, but it was not love at first sight for them. In actuality, she thought him distant, whereas his initial impression of her was “loud” and “arrogant.”
They did, however, eventually fall in love. They married on February 24, 1999, after dating for four years. They have two children: Nysa, a daughter, and Yug, a son.
