Bollywood actress Kajol regrets not taking her studies seriously and says she realised its importance late in life. She took a back seat from studies after making her acting debut when she waws still in school.
While speaking during Coca-Cola NDTV’s Support My School campaign Kajol said, “I never studied whole heartedly. And after completing my school education, when I started working, I realised the importance of education. I realised what I should have done. According to me, it was my mistake.”
The 38-year-old actress who is married to actor Ajay Devgan urged the students to take their education seriously and said, “I would like to tell my kids and other children to not repeat the mistake which I made in my childhood. So go ahead and study as much as you can. Knowledge is the only thing that nobody can take away from you.”
The second edition of Support My School telethon was organised Sunday by Coca-Cola India & South West Asia president and CEO Atul Singh, NDTV India CEO Vikram Chandra, campaign ambassador cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the Yash Raj Studios in Mumbai.
Kajol was born in Mumbai to producer Shomu Mukherjee and actress Tanuja. Often paired on-screen with actor Shah Rukh Khan. In fact, each of her five movies with him (Baazigar, Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, and Kabhi Khushie Kabhi Gham) have all gone on to become super-hits and blockbusters.
In 2001, she retired temporarily from Bollywood to spend more time with her family.
After a long sabbatical, Kajol made a comeback with Fanaa in 2006 and even won her fourth Filmfare Best Actress Award for her performance.
In 2010 Kajol was seen in Karan Johar’s films My Name Is Khan and We Are Family winning her her fifth Filmfare Best Actress Award for the former film.
