Happy Birthday to Bollywood’s Simran!
Gorgeous and talented actress Kajol has turned 43 today. Entire Bollywood industry is pouring birthday wishes on her and we too would love to wish her a very Happy and blasting birthday. We cannot deny that she was the Queen of 90’s. It’s entirely impossible to imagine 90’s era without her. Isn’t it? Well, thanks to Kajol for giving evergreen films to Bollywood. Her magical chemistry with King of the Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan is another milestone she has achieved in her career.
As Kajol turns 43, we look back at the actor’s on-screen characters that made 90s beautiful, realistic and made us believe in love, friendship and other relationships of life.
1. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995): After more than 20 years, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge still continues to dominate the list of Bollywood’s romantic film of all time. From beautiful locations of Switzerland to the rural glimpses of India, the sweet love story of Raj and Simran travelled through ups and downs and finally met a happily-ever-after ending. Well, we still love it.
2. Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998): Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was the directorial debut of Karan Johar who is counted in the best movie even today. The triangular love story revolved around college friends Rahul, Anjali and Tina.
Kajol as Anjali essayed the role of a happy-go-lucky girl who falls for her best friend but hides her feelings when she comes to know that he already loves Tina. Years later, they are reconciled by deceased Tina’s daughter. Salman Khan’s cameo role in the movie was an add-on for the audiences.
3. Baazigar (1993): Known to be one of the SRK’s best film, Baazigar saw him in a grey-shaded character on a mission to avenge his parents’ death from a rich businessman who ends up trapping his two daughters played by Kajol and Shilpa Shetty. It was for the first time that the iconic reel pair SRK and Kajol shared screen space together in a film which later on went to become commercially successful on the box office. It also marked Shilpa’s debut in Bollywood.
4. Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya (1998): The romantic comedy saw Kajol as an orphaned Muskaan who is brought up by her elder brother Arbaaz Khan and uncle Dharmendra. The song Oh Oh Jane Jaana from the movie went on to become one of Salman Khan’s top songs. Salman and Kajol enacted the roles of an on-screen couple, who struggled to convince the girl’s family for the alliance and thus, gave relationship goals to love birds all across the country.
5. Fanaa (2006): Yash Raj Films’ Fanaa was all about a soothing poetic feel. Kajol played the role of Kashmiri blind girl Zooni Ali who loses her love in a terror bombing but their destiny brought them together again.
Although the film won a lot of critical acclaim, it was banned in Gujarat due to Aamir Khan’s comments against the state’s government. Fanaa was also Kajol’s first film after her maternity break.
6. Ishq (1997): A comedy riot, Kajol starred in the movie alongside her now husband, Ajay Devgn. They had earlier worked together in movies like Hulchul and Gundaraaj. Ishq also starred the bubbly Juhi Chawla and Aamir in lead roles. Anu Malik’s musical compositions in the film were a total hit at the box office. Ishq was touted as one of the most expensive films of its time. The comedy drama was later remade in Kannada.
7. My Name Is Khan (2010): The reunion of Kajol’s with the King of Romance SRK was much-awaited in the industry. My Name Is Khan broke all the box office records and became top grossing movies of Bollywood when it released. Kajol starred in the film as San Francisco-based hair dresser Mandira who falls in love with a man who suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome. It was reported that Kareena Kapoor was also vying for the same role but Karan seemed to have preferred his favourite lady for his film.
