Kajol reveals her only condition to romance a younger hero on screen – ‘He should be more manly, not boyish’, says the actress
A younger actor romancing an older actress isn’t a new phenomenon in Bollywood. Kareena Kapoor Khan has acted with two — Imran Khan (Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu and Gori Tere Pyaar Mein) and Arjun Kapoor (Ki & Ka). Aishwarya Rai Bachchan romanced Ranbir Kapoor in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Though Kajol acted with Dhanush in VIP 2, they were not paired opposite each other.
We asked Kajol if she would be game to work with a younger hero. She laughs, “It would depend on the script. If the script demands it, I would not be averse to it. I’m completely okay with it. Films today have different subjects and directors are dealing with them with a different sensibility and maturity, which is great.”
Although she refused to pick a a actor she wants to act with, she has one big condition. “Whoever from the younger generation is cast opposite me, should be more manly and less boyish. I won’t be naming anyone at all,” she signs off.
After Hrs picks
He admittedly hates his boyish avatar and likes to be more scruffy and hence, looks broody and intense. He had a little scene with Tabu in Haider and that was fantastic. Kajol and he would be like fire and ice!
He has no inhibitions and age is actually just a number for him. He’s done it before and he can do it again. He’s brainy and brawny. What more do you need?
There’s nothing this man can’t do. He shapes himself the way his character needs to be portrayed. A self-confessed method actor, it won’t take him more than a day to adapt to Kajol’s requirements. And like Ranbir-Ash,
Kajol and Ranveer could be yet another dream jodi!
