Since then, the iconic pair had done a lot of superhit films together, one of which being, Dil Kya Kare. It was the first film Ajay and Kajol had done together after their marriage. Dil Kya Kare was produced by Ajay Devgn’s parents Veeru Devgan and Veena Devgn. Interestingly, Ajay's real-wife wife, Kajol had played the role of other woman in his life, while actress, Mahima Chaudhary had portrayed the role of his wife in the film!
Kajol took to her Twitter handle and shared a poster of the film, Dil Kya Kare, which was her first film with husband, Ajay Devgn post their marriage. Sharing a poster of the film, Kajol recalled her Kashmir trip and wrote, "The first and only time I ever went to Kashmir. What a beautiful beautiful place. Perfect for a love story don't you think? #21yearsofDilKyaKare." Check out her tweet below:
Kajol had narrated the whole story of her first meeting with Ajay Devgn in an interview with Human 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."

She had then further recalled how it was already four years of their courtship when they had decided to get married. In her words, "We’d been dating for 4 years, when we decided to get married. His parents were on board, but my dad didn’t talk to me for 4 days. He wanted me to focus on my career, but I was firm & he eventually came around. Again, there was no proposal–we just knew we wanted to spend our lives together."
Kajol had also revealed that they had given the wrong address of the venue to the media and had said, "We got married at home & gave the media the wrong venue–we wanted it to be our day. We had a Punjabi ceremony & a Marathi one! I remember, during the pheras Ajay was desperately trying to get the pandit to hurry up & even tried to bribe him!" She had recalled how Ajay had fallen sick on their honeymoon and they had to rush back. She had said, "I wanted a long honeymoon–so we travelled to Sydney, Hawaii, Los Angeles… But 5 weeks into it, he fell sick & said, ‘Baby, book me on the next flight home!’ We were supposed to do Egypt, but we cut it short."
