Kajol Devgn, wife of two-time national award-winning Bollywood actor-producer Ajay Devgn, has accused director Soundarya and national award-winning actor Dhanush of ‘having cheated’ her by assuring that she would only have few dialogues in Velaiilla Pattathari 2. “The reality, as it turned out, was entirely different,” Kajll laughs.
Known as an intense, power-packed actress, Kajol is making her comeback to Kollwood 20 years after she charmed Tamil audiences in Rajiv Menon’s Minsaara Kanavu in 1997. To her credit, Kajol has retained a perfect figure despite being the mother of a teenage girl. She plays the antagonist in Velaiilla Pattathari 2, sequel to the super-hit 2015 film Velailla Pattathari, which is set to release on 28th July.
“Before I took up the film, Dhanush and Soundarya told me that I’d only have very few dialogues in the film but it was only later that I realized that I had been ‘cheated’ by the duo,” Kajal laughs. “I struggled with my Tamil dialogues but was appropriately helped by the duo which spent long hours with me in ensuring that I got my dialogues right during the shoot,” she adds.
“Dhanush is an excellent actor and as he has also penned the film’s story, screenplay and dialogues, he was mightily involved in the film. I didn’t want the prequel but was narrated the story by Dhanush,” Kajol said and added as an after-thought that she would continue to star in Tamil films provided she was offered challenging characters in films with good scripts.
