"As the years go by, you get more comfortable and get
used to the way the other person works; otherwise the process
remains the same. It just becomes more of a team."
Now once again they are set to create celluloid magic with
the live action animation movie "Toonpur Ka Superhero"
slated to hit the screens Dec 24. Directed by Kireet Khurana,
the film has been produced by Krishika Lulla and Kumar Mangat
The film shows Ajay and Kajol playing humans who enter the
world of cartoons. This is Kajol's first animation film and
she asserts it was not a cakewalk.
"It was very tough working on the film. We even had to
re-shoot a few scenes. Dubbing and shooting was equally frustrating.
You had to keep so many things in mind like timing and everything,"
"There were a few action sequences too where I had to
do action in front of a green space, so I was smiling, scowling,
laughing - all in the wrong places! However, our action director
Jack Gill was very good and very patient with us," she
The actress dismissed rumours that the film was releasing after
"It's releasing when we thought it would. Animation takes
time. We shot in three-four months but then a lot more has to
be done on each character. Karan Johar's animation film is still
being made, 'Avatar' took five years to make. Simply because
you don't want to mess it up. There is so much on stake,"
In the film Ajay is the superhero, but Kajol's favourite is
Superman. "My superhero is the Superman. I loved him; I
read all his comics," she announced.
Finally, after two releases this year, the actress is planning
to take time off.
"I'm not working on any film right now. No plans as of
now. It's very difficult handling two kids. I don't get time
and I want to give all my time to them for some time now,"
The couple have two children - seven-year-old daughter Nysa
born in 2003 and Yug, who was born this year.
