Kajol says she had a miscarriage when K3G released: ‘The film had done so well, but it wasn’t a happy time’
Actor Kajol Devgn has given an interview to popular Instagram page, Humans on Bombay. In it, she has talked about meeting husband Ajay Devgn for the first time, how they fell for each other, got married and started a family. She also talked about the painful memories of her two miscarriages.
“Over time, we began planning to have kids. I was pregnant during Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham in 2001, but had a miscarriage. Kajol was in the hospital that day-the film had done so well, but it wasn’t a happy time. It had another miscarriage after that-it was tough,” she said in the interview. “But eventually it worked out-we had Nysa and Yug and our family’s complete,” she said.
Kajol Devgn and Ajay Devgn will be seen together on the big screen again in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, which releases on Friday. They have previously worked in films such as Ishq, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha and You, Me Aur Hum.
Talking about meeting him for the first time, she 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.”
“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,” she added. Check out the full post:

“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. 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. 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. 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! 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.
Over time, we began planning to have kids. I was pregnant during K3G, but had a miscarriage. I was in the hospital that day–the film had done so well, but it wasn’t a happy time. I had another miscarriage after that–it was tough. But eventually it worked out–we had Nysa & Yug & our family’s complete. We’ve been through so much–we’ve formed our own company, Ajay’s on his 100th film & every day we’re building something new. Life with him is content–we’re not too romantic or anything–we care for each other. If I’m thinking idiotic things, it’ll come out of my mouth without a filter & vice versa. Like right now I’m thinking that he owes me a trip to Egypt!”
Ajay is essaying the role of the warrior Taanaji Malusare, while Kajol is playing his wife, Savitribai Malusare. The movie will also feature Saif Ali Khan as the antagonist Uday Bhan, a Rajput official who works for Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb.
The 3D movie is set to release on January 10, 2020.
