Kajol and Ajay’s love story is quite unique. When Kajol had decided to marry Ajay, people were taken aback. Not just because they were completely opposite to each other, but for the fact that Kajol was one of the top-notched actresses of the 90s and he was a less-successful actor. People had called them an ‘unlikely pair’ and had even stated that their marriage would not last long. But Ajay and Kajol had proved everyone wrong. Even after 22 years of marital bliss, Ajay and Kajol still manage to create the magic from their days of Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha.
On February 22, 2021, Ajay Devgn and Kajol completed 22 years of marital bliss and shared adorable wishes for each other. Kajol took to her IG handle and shared a throwback picture with Ajay from one of their movies and wrote, ""And you sir, you’re very attractive. Therefore, I will stare at you!” - Anonymous & Me #22years #stillgoing #grateful #laughingalways." On the other hand, Ajay took to his IG handle and shared a picture of a bottle of wine with a sketch of them and “Battled in 1999, only edition” printed on the label.
Kajol and Ajay Devgn had begun dating each other while shooting for the film, Gundaraj in 1994. The beautiful couple had gotten married to each other on February 24, 1999, in a true Maharashtrian style. Kajol had narrated the whole story of her first meeting with Ajay Devgn in an interview with Humans Of Bombay and had said, "We met 25 years ago, on the sets of Hulchul–I was ready for the shot & asked, ‘Where’s my hero?’ Someone pointed him out–he was broodily sitting in a corner. So 10 minutes before I met him, I bitched about him! We began talking on set & became friends."

Kajol had further revealed how she was dating someone at that time and had even bitched about him to Ajay. She had said, "I was dating someone at the time & so was he–I’ve even complained about my then boyfriend to him! Soon, we both broke up with our significant others. Neither of us proposed–it was understood that we were to be together. It went from hand-holding to a lot more before we knew it! We used to go for dinners & so many drives–he lived in Juhu & I, in South Bombay, so half our relationship was in the car! My friends warned me about him–he had quite a reputation. But he was different with me–that’s all I knew."
Kajol is known for her effortless acting and is applauded for her versatility. She had tied the knot with Ajay when she was at the peak of her professional life. In an interview with IANS, when the beautiful actress was asked why she had decided to settle down at the time when her career was flourishing, she had stated, “It was the right thing for me to do at that point of time. I had been already working for around eight and a half to nine years. So, I was ready to kind of calm down on my work front and kind of take it easier.” She had further added that she was doing four to five films a year and didn’t want to do it for the rest of her life. That was the moment when she had decided that she would get married and do one film a year and would be happier like that.
