It’s been a couple of years since actress Kajol was seen on the big screen. Her last outing at the box-office was with husband, actor Ajay Devgn in Toonpur Ka Superrhero in 2010.
However, as the face of several brands, the yum mum is quite a popular name on the small screen. Known to be extremely choosy when it comes to her film roles, Kajol admits that she’s just as choosy when it comes to endorsing products too. But ask her about her return to the small screen and she saysit’s no different for the TV shows either.
“I had really enjoyed doing TV and I am still open to it, but nothing exciting has been offered to me yet,” reveals the actor who had earlier dabbled on the small screen with Zee TV’s reality show, Rock-N-Roll Family along with mum, actor Tanuja and Ajay. “I have always maintained that my priority are my kids, so if I do get an offer where I can juggle my time with them comfortably, I’d love to consider TV again. But yes, I am going to be super-choosy for sure,” she adds.
“The one reason I don’t mind doing commercials is the flexi-timings, the shootings provide,” explains Kajol. “So right now that will be a huge factor if I do decide to do TV again,” she insists.
As for the format of the show, Kajol says that it could be anything but a soap. “Let’s see, I really haven’t thought about that. As long as the show interests me, I think I will consider it. Till then I am happy being a viewer,” she More >

Bollywood may be big, but Tellywood’s small screen is proving to be a bigger lure for our B-town actors and actresses. After a string of Bollymen — right from Amitabh Bachchan to Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan — gave in to the temptation and showed their dum on television, it’s now the turn of the actresses to hog the telly-limelights. Years back, Karisma Kapur, Madhuri Dixit, Raveena Tandon and Manisha Koirala set the trend because they were not exactly hot property at the BO. Now the new brigade is jumping on the TV bandwagon also because of the draw of the mass reach and the moolah. So, while Rani Mukerji is judging a reality dance show Dance Premiere League, Amrita Rao is a celebrity panelist on a reality matchmaking show The Perfect Bride. Not too long ago, Kajol alongwith mum Tanuja and hubby Ajay Devgn had turned judge for a family show Rock N Roll Family, as had Sonali Bendre for Indian Idol, while Soha Ali Khan is hosting a game show Khelo, Jeeto, Jeeyo. Urmila Matondkar, too, had created quite a stir with Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Waar Parivaar, while Shilpa Shetty wowed viewers with Bigg Boss.
