Kajol, the queen or rather lioness (Her zodiac sign is Leo) of her time reigned for over a decade before settling down with long time beau Ajay Devgan.

She might have passed on the baton of success to the likes of Rani, Katrina and Kareena, but she continues to command respect in showbiz. Last seen in U Me Aur Hum, Kajol would next appear with her favourite jodidaar SRK in Karan Johar's My Name is Khan.

Talking about Kajol without discussing her chemistry with Shah Rukh Khan seems incomplete. Ever wondered what made this couple's chemistry rocking? The answer lies in their eyes. Both of them have intense eyes that do all the talking when they share the screen space together. Both of them have this distinct magnetic appeal.

Those intense eyes looked promising from her very first film (Bekhudi), but it was only after Baazigar became a blockbuster that she became irresistible.

Be it Priya Chopra of Baazigar or Sonia of Karan Arjun, Kajol never looked amateurish even at the beginning of her career.

Kajol gained superstar status with the mega success of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge, once again with Shah Rukh Khan.

The actress was path-breaking with her negative role in Gupt which won her not only accolodes from viewers and critics but also the Filmfare trophy of Best actress in negative role.

Whatever she touched turned to gold after that. She continued to taste success with Ishq, Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya, Dushman, Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha and Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

Just when she was declared the undisputed queen of Bollywood, and the actress was at the peak of her career, she took a major decision of her life. She got married to Ajay Devgan. Though she continued to do films post marriage, but responsibilities of family left her with little time to focus on career.

Her second innings though gave some major blockbusters to the box-office like Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Fanaa.

As Kajol turns 34 today, we wish the actress continues to deliver.
