After almost 2 decades of marriage, Kajol finally opened up about why she decided to marry Ajay Devgn at the peak of her career in Bollywood. She was a star back in 90’s and he was a less-successful actor. Her decision to marry Ajay Devgn in 1999 came as a surprise to her fans and friends. After so many years of being happily married, with two kids- daughter Nysa and son Yug, Kajol spilt the beans on why she tied the knot when she was the most successful actress in Bollywood.(Recommended Read: The Love Story Of Kajol And Ajay Devgn Proves That When Opposites Attract This Happens)
In an interview earlier, she was asked why she chose to tie the knot with a less popular actor. She gave a very sorted answer. Here is what she said, “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.”
The most-loved actress of Bollywood, queen of hearts further added, "I was doing four to five films a year. I didn't want to do only that and to only live like that. That wasn't what I had set out for. So I assumed that I would get married and do one film a year. I'll be happier and be more settled."

Well, post-marriage, her work took a back seat. She took a sabbatical after the birth of her daughter and returned to the silver screen with Fanaa and won many hearts. She has done a few selected movies after that. Any specific reason for being so selective about the movies? The diva was always clear that she will do only one film a year. She still sticks to that! Your dazzling smile on silver-screen is like sunshine, we absolutely adore you Kajol.
For the ones who don’t know, Kajol and Ajay had their own share of ups and downs. There was a time sometime back when one of the popular magazines had published Ajay's alleged affair with a much younger actress. To this she stubbornly reacted and said, “I don't believe in those rumours because I know the way this industry functions. You cannot continue a marriage without the basic trust. Frankly, I don't care for such talk.” (Also Read: Bollywood And TV Celeb Couples Who Chose To Tie The Nuptial Knot In A Temple)
