As somebody who rose to stardom at a young age, Kajal Aggarwal is quite confident about what she wants in life.
Says Kajal, “I have always wanted to be a good performer than being a mere actor. When I do so, I give my 100 per cent. It’s been nine years since my first film released. But even today when I sign a film, I have the same enthusiasm and energy in me. I am ambitious,” she smiles.
Kajal is quite choosy when it comes to her films. “I go by the script mostly and my instinct. Any role that I am doing has to be well defined. I don’t want to simply run around trees and vanish. Initially, I feared being typecast but it took me a while to get over it,” she explains.
Kajal, who is juggling between multiple projects simultaneously, says, “It’s quite fortunate that I have been a part of many hit films in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. I have Brahmotsavam, Sardar Gabbar Singh and a film opposite Vikram.
So that says it all. There’s no time to think much, complain or introspect.”
She adds, “I always keep challenging myself and I like to push my boundaries. I have learnt to be more patient and I have become more self-critical.”
Not many know that she owns a jewellery brand, Marsala. “My sister and I started the brand together. She designs jewellery and I help her out with the rest. I am looking forward to expand its presence down South. I’ve a start-up social commerce venture too,” she says adding that later in life she would want to be a successful entrepreneur.
“I am not really someone who would plan, but I’d like to see myself as a successful entrepreneur some day. Now, I find it a bit tough to manage my personal and professional life... I only want to act now. Success and fame are short-lived. Anyone can achieve success with one film, but sustaining throughout is a big deal.”...
