A Beloved Daughter

On April 20, 2003, Kajol gave birth to their daughter, Nysa. She was the apple of her mother's eye, and Kajol had long prayed for her arrival. Following her daughter's birth, Kajol took a five-year break from her acting career to focus on motherhood.

A Resurgence in Film

Kajol made her debut in the film "Bekhudi" and quickly rose to prominence, becoming a national favorite. However, her true success came after starring alongside Shah Rukh Khan in the film "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge." The two became a sensational duo and went on to appear in eleven films together, often being hailed as one of the most beautiful pairs in Indian cinema.

A Versatile Actress

Kajol is the only Indian actress to have received an award for the Best Negative Role in Rajiv Rai's film "Gupt: The Hidden Truth." She also showcased her versatility by portraying a blind girl named Zooni in the film "Fanaa," opposite Aamir Khan, in 2006. This film marked her triumphant return to the industry after her five-year hiatus.

A Philanthropic Spirit
