Kajol might not be doing a lot of films these days, but she is still riding high on cloud eleven. Aparna Sen approached Kajol to cast her in a film, which is inspired by Sen's own life. The film is titled Iti Mrinalini.
According to an industry insider, Aparna Sen managed to reach Kajol after chasing her for months. But, Kajol apparently showed no interest in the script.
A source informs, "After chasing the young actress for some months to hear a narration, she got a date from her but fifteen minutes into the narration, Kajol excused herself and walked out. After waiting for half-an-hour, Aparna realised that she was not coming back and left the Devgan residence, smarting with humiliation. Now she has cast her daughter Konkona in the role. A few years ago, Aparna was to direct Kajol's husband Ajay Devgan in PNC's Gulel but that project fell through even though Ajay had liked the script".
Aparna Sen, though, denies the rumour, "Absolute rubbish! I never even thought of Kajol for Iti Mrinalini which is a small budget Bengali film where Konkona and I were always supposed to be playing the younger and older age of the same person. Kajol was never even considered! I have never met her."
