Kajol is one of the finest actresses in Bollywood who has given many hit films for over two decades now. The Bong beauty has won 6 Filmfare Awards out of 11 nominations till now and is one of the talents who has never lost her charm.
Although the actress made her Bollywood debut with Bekhudi in 1992, the movie bombed. However, Kajol's acting was really appreciated and she bagged her breakthrough hit, Baazigar in 1993. After that there was no turning back for the actress. She has worked with many banners, but her collaboration and hit movies with Yash Raj banner and on-screen partner, Shahrukh Khan are memorable.
Some of the hit films of Kajol includes Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Gupt, Yeh Dillagi, Pyaar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, Ishq to name a few.
However, it is sad to see that the talented Bollywood actress has rejected some of the biggest hits in her career. Kajol in her career has turned down some films which became blockbuster hits. Although the actress has been one of the finest we had in the industry, we so wish she had worked in these hit films instead of rejecting them.
For example, Kajol has rejected Manisha Koirala's role in Khamoshi: The Musical which shot the actress to fame. She even turned down legendary roles like Zaara in Veer Zaara which later went to Preity Zinta.
