Kajol and Ajay Devgn, two diametrically opposite individuals, have charmed us as a couple for over two decades. The two are now parents to Nysa and Yug, one a teenager and the other, is almost one. But not many know that Kajol suffered two miscarriages before them.
The actress shared that the first one happened during the release of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, a 2001 blockbuster. She revealed that the film had done so well but it wasn't a happy time for her.
Speaking to Humans of Bombay, a popular Instagram page, Kajol said, "I was pregnant during K3G, but had a miscarriage. I was in the hospital that day-the film had done so well, but it wasn't a happy time. I had another miscarriage after that-it was tough. But eventually it worked out-we had Nysa & Yug & our family's complete."
She added, "We've been through so much-we've formed our own company, Ajay's on his 100th film & every day we're building something new. Life with him is content-we're not too romantic or anything-we care for each other. If I'm thinking idiotic things, it'll come out of my mouth without a filter & vice versa."

“We met 25 years ago, on the sets of Hulchul–I was ready for the shot & asked, ‘Where’s my hero?’ Someone pointed him out–he was broodily sitting in a corner. So 10 minutes before I met him, I bitched about him! We began talking on set & became friends. I was dating someone at the time & so was he–I’ve even complained about my then boyfriend to him! Soon, we both broke up with our significant others. Neither of us proposed–it was understood that we were to be together. It went from hand-holding to a lot more before we knew it! We used to go for dinners & so many drives–he lived in Juhu & I, in South Bombay, so half our relationship was in the car! My friends warned me about him–he had quite a reputation. But he was different with me–that’s all I knew. We’d been dating for 4 years, when we decided to get married. His parents were on board, but my dad didn’t talk to me for 4 days. He wanted me to focus on my career, but I was firm & he eventually came around. Again, there was no proposal–we just knew we wanted to spend our lives together. We got married at home & gave the media the wrong venue–we wanted it to be our day. We had a Punjabi ceremony & a Marathi one! I remember, during the pheras Ajay was desperately trying to get the pandit to hurry up & even tried to bribe him! I wanted a long honeymoon–so we travelled to Sydney, Hawaii, Los Angeles… But 5 weeks into it, he fell sick & said, ‘Baby, book me on the next flight home!’ We were supposed to do Egypt, but we cut it short. Over time, we began planning to have kids. I was pregnant during K3G, but had a miscarriage. I was in the hospital that day–the film had done so well, but it wasn’t a happy time. I had another miscarriage after that–it was tough. But eventually it worked out–we had Nysa & Yug & our family’s complete. We’ve been through so much–we’ve formed our own company, Ajay’s on his 100th film & every day we’re building something new. Life with him is content–we’re not too romantic or anything–we care for each other. If I’m thinking idiotic things, it’ll come out of my mouth without a filter & vice versa. Like right now I’m thinking that he owes me a trip to Egypt!”
