Who is Kajal Aggarwal?

The short answer: Ajay’s new glam-bomb gal!

Ajay Devgn is a happily married man, but he seems to have found a new Kajal (for the uninitiated, Ajay calls his beloved wife ‘Kajal’ and not Kajol). Before you let your horses run wild, let us assure you that the marriage vows hold firm, this one is only for a movie: the July release, Singham. Kajal is Bollywood’s latest import from the South, in B-town after doing films in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada. It was her performance in the Telugu super-hit Magadheera that made everyone sit up and take notice. Apparently superstar Ajay and director Rohit Shetty were divided between Kangna Ranaut and Kajal for the heroine’s role in their latest. While the hunk wanted his Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai co-star, Shetty was dead sure about casting Kajal. He says, “Kajal is very popular down South. We are confident about her pulling off the role successfully.” But, just FYI, this is not Kajal’s first attempt at Hindi films. Her debut in Bollywood was as Aishwarya Rai’s friend in Kyun…Ho Gaya Na!, and we all know what happened to that film and the romance that blossomed between the top stars at the time. But our audiences have a short-lived memory span, so Kajal has nothing to worry about!
