Kajol Mukherjee Biography

Born to star actress Tanuja and Shomu Mukherjee, acting was in Kajols blood line as her great grandmother Ratanbai, her grandmother Shobhana Samarth her mother Tanuja and aunty Nutan were all well known renowned actresses of their time. She schooled in Panchgani's St. Joseph's Convent. She admits that she was an average student whose scoring subject happened to be English literature. Eventually, she got herself enrolled in Sophia College but later gave upon studies to join the movies at the sweet age of 16. There are people who depend on beauty. But Kajol knows she's not one of them. She doesn't care if her look is unperfected. Not that she makes an effort to be unglamorous but she just- doesn't consider a perfect hair-do and the oh-so-sophisticated attire to be beautiful. Swathed in simple, young clothes, bereft of any obvious make-up, she's so totally unconventional. This being central to her identity, it's no surprise that she defines herself in her own terms and becomes something that's never been seen before. There's never any danger that Kajol would be a carbon copy of anybody. She was only nine-films-old, and her best actress trophy for DDLJ had affirmed the all-round opinion that she is one hell of the feisty actress. Read Full Bio >>
