I don't believe I need a son to complete my family: Kajol
By Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, Aug 10 (IANS) Actress Kajol, who is expecting her second child, is not praying for a son. She says she is equally enthused by the idea of having another girl child in her family.
The actress has a daughter with actor husband Ajay Devgn.
"I'm just hoping for a healthy happy baby and a healthy happy momma to look after the baby. I've a wonderful daughter. How can I say no to another girl just like her? I don't believe I need a son to complete my family. My sister Tanissha and I made quite a complete family," said Kajol.
The 35-year-old, who made her debut with "Bekhudi" in 1992, gave hits like "Gupt" (1996) and "Dushman" (1998). She teamed up with her husband in box office successes like "Ishq" and "Pyaar To Hona Hi Thaa". But her maximum hits were with Shah Rukh Khan that includes blockbusters like "Baazigar"(1993), "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" (1995), "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai" (1998) and "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham" (2001).
For those who are hoping to see more of Kajol on screen after she becomes a mother a second time, there's disappointment in store. Kajol doesn't intend to increase her volume of work after motherhood.
"I've worked a lot. I enjoy doing just one-two films a year. I don't think I want to do more than that. I'm happy with my pace of work. If I do too many films people would get bored of me."
This year she was seen in "My Name Is Khan" and her next "We Are Family" is scheduled for a September release and she will also be seen with her husband in "Toonpoor Ka Super Hero".
Any plan of a comeback after motherhood?
"It all depends on how I feel after I have my baby. I refuse to take a decision here and now. It's my prerogative to do what I like. I firmly believe women should have babies when they can take care of them. As simple as that.
"I want my baby to arrive and I want to watch him or her grow. I took time to have a second baby because I wanted to have the time to give myself fully to motherhood. I refuse to miss out on the joy of watching my child grow for anything in the world," said the actress.
