Kajol made her acting debut with the unsuccessful romantic drama Bekhudi (1992), while still in school. She quit her studies to pursue acting and had her first commercial successes with the thriller Baazigar.
Kajol further added that she doesn’t like to watch movies as much as she enjoys reading.
Kajol said, “I don’t watch movies. I really don’t. I’m not a movie person! But my guilty pleasure is my books actually. I read a lot of books. I love vampires, werewolves, everything with fangs and abnormalities on them.”
She also added, “I’m a big believer in reading. I believe that children should read. I believe that regardless of gender, they should read because I believe in armchair traveling, I believe that it expands the mind. I believe that it makes you a better person, much more well informed.”
“I think reading is a habit that everybody should cultivate.”
