For every girl, no matter how close she is to her father, her mother remains an integral part of her life. Her first best friend and confidant, every girl shares a warm bond with their mothers. Kajol and her sister, Tanisha share such an unbreakable bond with their mother, Tanuja. For Kajol, her mother is a school of inspiration, who has guided her through all walks of life. Be it her personal life or professional decisions, Tanuja ji has always guided her. And due to the lockdown, Kajol is not being able to meet her.
On April 24, 2020, Kajol took to her Instagram handle and shared a lovely picture with her mother, Tanuja. In the picture, both the mother-daughter due were seen flashing their best smile. Along with the picture, Kajol wrote that it is been 45 days that she hasn’t met her mother due to the lockdown and how she misses meeting her. Her note can be read as “Flashback Friday ...... miss my mom. It's all our 45 day quarantine anniversary.”
On the occasion of Daughter’s Day (September 22, 2019), Kajol had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a collage of sweet photos with her mother, Tanuja, and had written, “Positions reversed! Two daughters and two moms!" And to wish her daughter, Nysa Devgan on the occasion, she had shared an adorable picture with her. In the picture, Nysa could be seen sitting on Kajol's laps and the doting mommy had captioned the post as “You will always fit in my arms."

In an interview with India Today, Kajol had opened up about her equation with her mother, Tanuja while growing up. She had revealed, “I was petrified of her. I wouldn't put one toe out of line if I knew she didn't approve of it. My mother was one of the most forward-thinking people. I had the most amazing upbringing because of it. Topics like compassion, anger, forgiveness and death were discussed. Most things were not hidden. We were always told to take the most tolerant route and that revenge doesn't get you anything.”
Kajol’s mother Tanuja had undergone a surgery for diverticulitis in June 2019. Kajol had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a black and white picture with her ailing mother. In the picture, Kajol could be seen smiling with her head on her mother’s shoulders. Thanking the well-wishers for praying for her mother's speedy recovery, Kajol had captioned her note as “This is just a great big THANK YOU to everyone who has called and prayed and thought of us. This smile that you see is of sheer gratitude.”
In a throwback interview with the UNI, when Kajol was asked if her mother is similar to the character she portrays in the movie, Helicopter Eela, she had replied, “My mother is the complete opposite of Eela. The kind of upbringing she gave me is something I will treasure. I think I am lucky to be born to her. I could not have chosen a better mother. Because she was extremely brave bringing me up.” (Also Read: Abhay Deol Finds Love Again In A Celebrity Manager After Breakup with Preeti Desai, Details Inside)
