Birthday Special: How Ajay Devgn met Kajol and got married
Ajay Devgn, who is known as one of the most talented actors of Bollywood, turns 45 today. As the star celebrates his birthday, here is an untold story about him that is quite interesting. The story is that before Ajay Devgn fell in love with Kajol, Ajay and Karisma Kapoor were in an alleged relationship.
In early ’90s, Ajay and Karisma were considered one of the hottest pairs in the tinsel town. They appeared in five movies. Media reports said Karisma and Ajay were madly in love with each other.
And according to reports, Bollywood was aware about their affair and there was a rumour that did the rounds at that time which goes: Karisma had called Ajay one day while he was on an outdoor shoot when she heard a female voice in his room. She left in a huff following a tiff.
Kajol came into his life, leaving behind her long-time boyfriend Kartik.
Ajay and Kajol got into a relationship in 1995, after Ajay parted ways with Karisma.
Now Kajol and Ajay are considered one the most adorable couples in B-town. The pair, with their superb onscreen chemistry in ‘Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha’ won many hearts. Probably nobody could imagine then that their onscreen love would one day turn into real love and the two would surprise everybody and get married!
Ajay started dating Kajol in 1994, while shooting for ‘Hulchul’. And on February 24, 1999, they were married in a traditional Maharashtrian ceremony at the Devgn house.
Ajay began his Bollywood career with the movie ‘Phool Aur Kaante’ in 1991 and won a Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut for his role. He was then seen in such successful films as ‘Jigar’ in 1992, ‘Dilwale’ and ‘Suhaag’ in 1994, ‘Naajayaz’ in 1995, ‘Diljale’ in 1996 and ‘Ishq’ in 1997. Earlier in his career he was known as an action star. He soon broke the stereotype by picking up roles that gave him the chance to experiment with his acting prowess.
In 1998, his performance in Mahesh Bhatt’s drama ‘Zakhm’ won him his first National Film Award for Best Actor.
The star has appeared in many films following this and won numerous awards in his career.
In 2000, Ajay set up a production company known as Ajay Devgn Films Productions whose first film was ‘Raju Chacha’. And in 2008, he debuted as a film director with ‘U Me Aur Hum’.
