A celebrity’s life may seem like a dream come true, but actor Kajol says that it has its drawbacks. The actor says that the world celebrates stars’ victories with them but is also ruthless when they fail. “The most challenging and the saddest thing about being a celebrity is living in the public glare.If you are not successful, it happens on a global scale. If you fall, you fall down and fail in front of the entire world. Everyone will make fun of you. To handle that and still get up, and find meaning in their life after that... That’s the toughest part of being successful,” she says.

Talking about success, Kajol, who has been part of Bollywood for more than two decades now, says, “Success is subjective. I believe I am a good and responsible human being today. I am a good mother and I have a lot of roles to play in life. That’s all that I can hope for. I am not perfect, but I feel I am successful because I feel fulfilled with all that I have done. I don’t believe that success is linked to just being good at what you do. There are people who are great at what they do, but are unhappy doing it. So they may be considered successful from that point of view, but I am sure, personally, they don’t think of themselves as successful,” adds Kajol.
