At 41, award-winning actor Kajol still stands strong and bold in the film industry. But the Padma Shri awardee, who has a film career spanning over two decades, believes that showbiz is “simply just another business” and is a man’s world.
Wage inequality recently became a hot topic in Hollywood and Bollywood. Asked about gender inequality in the film industry, Kajol said, “It is male dominated. There is no getting away from that fact. Whether it is Hollywood or Bollywood, that will be there because currently our world is like that.
“Hollywood or Bollywood, it is simply another business where it is male dominated. But again it has to be monetarily feasible and economically viable. That’s something that has everything to do with the pay scale as far as this particular business is concerned.”
But neither age nor her marital status has ever come in the way of her career.
Married to actor-producer Ajay Devgn, the mother of two, was last seen on the big screen in the 2015 film Dilwale. And no, she isn’t taking a break from movies as of now. She will soon start shooting for a film under their home banner production. “I can’t talk about it right now. It is still in the scripting stage. I hope it goes on floors in the next three months or so. The director is yet to be finalised,” said the Gupt star.
