Kajol says – “My mother has passed down too many things to me. The most important thing that she passed down to me was, ‘You have to make your children think for themselves.’ I think that was the biggest learning that I took back and that led to everything.”
She further adds – “They have to learn how to think for themselves, make their own decisions and find out whether they can live with their consequences or not. That is the only way they will learn whether this decision is the correct thing for them.” Earlier this month, Kajol made her digital debut with Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy, which marked Renuka Shahane’s maiden directorial venture.
While Kajol’s character has a dysfunctional relationship with her mother and a lot of pent-up anger towards her in Tribhanga, the actor’s equation with her mother Tanuja is anything but strained. In an interview recently, Kajol says – “I never had a rebellion as such with my mother. I had the most amazing relationship with her because she is amazing. Everything that she did in my life, every decision that she made. She explained it to me in the way I could understand it. Whether it was my parents breaking up, whether it was going to work or being a working woman.”
