In four years, she has waltzed through 18 Telugu and three Tamil movies. But southern star Kajal Aggarwal is now gearing up for her Bollywood debut.
Singam — a Rohit Shetty film co-starring Ajay Devgn, 42,— is the Hindi remake of a Tamil blockbuster starring Suriya and Anushka Shetty. Kajal is prepared for the inevitable comparisons. “You learn to take them in your stride,” she says. “The film is a safe Bollywood launch pad for me,” adds Kajal.
Wouldn’t her role be limited in the male-dominated action thriller? “The role is limited but as Ajay’s love interest, I’ll bring pleasant moments to the film,” says the 25-year-old.
Known to be quite a prankster, Ajay did not spare Kajal on the sets.
“I was the unit’s favourite bakra,” she says, recalling how once Ajay got her to thrash the goons for a scene. “He told me I was a new-age girl and handed me his belt to use on the bad guys. ‘Maro, maro,’ he prodded. With an apology to the actors, I got into the act with a vengeance, only to be told later that the camera hadn’t been rolling,” she says.
Despite the pranks
Ajay remains her favourite co-star. Kajal is also an ardent admirer of his wife, Kajol: “It’s a happy coincidence that we share the same name. I hope to meet her soon,” she says.
