All for her daughter’s freedom of choice, the actor goes on to talk about the principles she’s lived by in her three-decade-long journey in the film industry. While validation is integral to many actors, Kajol is quite insouciant about it: “I never worried about being a part of a group or following the trend or being at the number one spot in the rat race.
