Bollywood actors Kajol and Ajay Devgn got married on this date (February 24) 22 years ago and have been throwing major goals for all these years. Last seen together in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, the duo went from being costars to friends then from lovers to spouses, but without their chemistry ever taking a dip.
Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s love story is one that went beyond the script. When they first met on the sets of their film, Hulchul (1995), their first impressions of each other were not the most favorable. However, they eventually struck a friendship, which blossomed into love. They tied the knot on February 24, 1999.
As they celebrate 22 years of being married, here is some interesting trivia about their relationship. While Ajay initially found Kajol to be too loud, she thought he was stuck-up, as he kept to himself and did not talk to anyone. However, when they were giving their first shot together, she felt something.
During an appearance on Look Who’s Talking With Niranjan in 2014, Kajol had said, “We were doing a shot together, and the shot was that I was supposed to slap him and he was supposed to very dramatically hold my hand so that I could not. I remember that moment and I remember thinking to myself, ‘Oh my God.’ It was one of those flashes that suddenly came to me: ‘This man is going to play a very crucial role in my life, I just know it.’’
Ajay and Kajol did not get into a relationship for the next two years, as they were seeing other people at the time. In fact, she would even discuss boyfriend problems with him. Ajay and Kajol were keen to avoid the prying eyes of the media and lied to them about their wedding venue. They secretly got married on the terrace of his house. They have two children – daughter Nysa and son Yug.
