Kajal said that people want to start their career in Hindi 'because it is a more nationwide recognised language'. Calling herself a Bombay girl, 'born and raised', she added that she started her career in the Telugu film industry. Kajal also said that she has done a few Hindi films but for her 'the feeling of home is Hyderabad and Chennai and that will never go'.
Speaking with News18, Kajal said, “South is definitely very accepting but I guess there is no discount or there is no shortcut to hard work. And there is no easy way to success. There are a lot of people who want to start their career in Hindi because it is a more nationwide recognised language. Having said that, yes the south is a very friendly industry, it’s very accepting, there are fabulous technicians in the south, wonderful directors and phenomenal content that is generated over all four languages- Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada."
She added, “And of course, Hindi has been our mother tongue. We have grown up watching Hindi movies. It has been accepting and has been very kind to me as well. But I prefer the eco-system, the ethics, the values, the discipline of the South industry which I feel is lacking in Hindi cinema."
Fans will see Kajal in the Tamil action film Indian 2 alongside Kamal Haasan and Priya Bhavani Shankar. The film will also feature Siddharth, Gulshan Grover, and Rakul Preet Singh. She also has three other Tamil films-- Karungaapiyam, Ghosty, and Uma in the pipeline.
She will also be seen in the upcoming yet-untitled Telugu film, which is currently dubbed NBK 108. The film stars Nandamuri Balakrishna and is directed by Anil Ravipudi. In the film, Kajal has been paired opposite Balakrishna while Sreeleela will be seen as his daughter.
