Kajol's happy life nowadays


Kajol DevganKitchen:
Did you know that actor Ajay Devgan is a better cook than his wife Kajol?
The actress may have been one of the best in the business before career took a...
...backseat to marriage and daughter Nysa, but she is certainly not the best in the kitchen!
Though she recently inaugurated a store called Kitchen Concepts in Mumbai, Kajol claims that she has never learnt cooking till date. "My mother [actress Tanuja] never pushed me into the kitchen when I was younger," she said. "So all I learnt was to boil water and make salads. Even then, I used to burn the salads.

"If I needed tea before marriage in the middle of the night, I would tell Tanisha, my younger sister to make it. I am bad with fire because I usually burn everything.

Ajay spends more time in the kitchen than I do, and is a good cook," Kajol admitted. "He experiments a lot. He makes amazing mutton and kheema.
"I only make salads for him, which usually get burnt. My father [Shomu Mukherjee] is a Bengali and my mother, a Maharashtrian. So I have tasted food from both these regions before marriage.
"Now, I am married to a Punjabi so I get to taste food that is pan-Indian. I keep trying all kinds of food because of this pan-Indian family connection!" Kajol said.

Future:
Kajol's year-old daughter Nysa has desi tastes, Mama Devgan said. "She loves roti, chicken and rice. I don't know what tastes she will develop later.
"I enjoy motherhood. It is the best thing that has happened to me. It has taken me [to a level] where I have always wanted to be in life. I clean nappies! I cannot tell you how interesting life has become!"
If you leave aside a five-second appearance in good friend Karan Johar's production Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kajol's last film was Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, for which she won numerous awards.
"After I quit acting, I have a lot of time to read," she said. "I read all kinds of futuristic fantasy fiction. I find them very interesting. If people ask me which is my best novel, I'll say it's yet to be published! Recently, I have read all the Harry Potter books and I loved them all.
Kajol admitted that she has been looking at film scripts. "But I have not said yes to any," she said. "I am not sure whether I will do a film in future. But one thing is certain. If I do, it will be completely on my terms.
"People ask me whether Tanisha and I will ever come together in a film. I don't know what the future holds for us. I can only say that right now, I have no plans to do any film."
