Kajal Aggarwal


A South Beauty

She is an Indian actress and model that has appeared in more than 50 plus films in more than three languages. She is one of the most sought after actresses in India and had her breakthrough success in Magadheera. Kajal Aggarwal is known for her gracious and charming personality, due to which she garnered a loyal fan following.

Young Kajal Was Different

Many might not know this, but Kajal Aggrawal used to be highly introverted and geeky in School. She used to dream of being an Astronaut or a Hair Stylist instead of acting. Kajal was a late bloomer, and even now, many of her school friends are shocked that she is now in the limelight. Even though Kajal is highly successful, she still has ambitions to get further educated, and it's one of her life goals.

A Fan Paid 60 Lakhs to Meet Her

Yes, that's right, one of the die-hard fans of Kajal paid out this staggering amount of money just for a meet. However, unfortunately for him, the people he contacted through a website were fraudsters and duping other fans. He became extremely stressed out when they stopped talking to him, and the fan ran away. He was on the move until cops caught him in Kolkata and interrogated him. He has now filled in the complaint, and the matter is currently being investigated.

Her Support of #Metoo

The Me too movement was a landmark movement that changed the entertainment industry all over the world. The Indian film industry, while being filled with glamour and success, also has a dark underbelly to it. Stories about producers and directors forcing actresses for sexual favours are constantly circulated, rarely ever spoken about. Kajal Aggarwal was one of the few mainstream actresses that openly talked about it and sympathized with the victims. She asked everyone not to trivialize this issue and sling mud at each other.

That Time She Rescued A Young Girl From Abuse

Kajal is a woman of a sensitive heart and takes a stand whenever she sees any wrongdoings. During her college days, she saw a father badly beating his child on the streets. Kajal immediately shouted at him for this heinous act and called the police. They came in and rescued the girl from the abusive father's clutches, and she was placed in an orphanage. Very few would ever go out of their way to do something like this, but that's what makes her special.

Her Topless Photoshoot Controversy

In 2011, a photoshoot of Kajal Aggarwal went viral where it looked like she was posing nude for FHM Magazine. It created a lot of shockwaves through the industry, and she had to come out and explain the situation to the press.

Kajal made this statement.

"It is a distorted picture. Yes, I shot for the magazine, but not in this way. I used a black tube while shooting and never shot topless. They have photoshopped and changed it. The magazine has released a distorted version, which is wrong and unethical. I'm not the kind of person who would ever do a topless shoot."

The magazine at the time came out with their side of the story and made this statement-

FHM has never in the past or will in the future morph pictures of any celebrities. We shot with Kajal Aggarwal on August 18 in Mumbai and have a full team composed of assistants, stylists, makeup artists, photographers and others to back it up. We'd be happy to release the full untouched raw pictures on the internet soon to back it up too,"

There has been no update on this controversy since then, and it's yet to be clear what exactly happened.

How She Spent Her Time During Lockdown

Kajal spent a lot of time catching up on the books while being in Lockdown. She shared many of these books on her Instagram highlights, and some of them are-

  • The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupé
  • The Journey Home: Autobiography of an American Swami by Radhanath Swami
  • The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

You can find these books in your local bookstore and find exciting facets of life.

Kajal Aggarwal is an all-around achiever in her life, and her ability to balance her personal, professional life is truly outstanding. She fills in every box of the perfect girl one can only dream of getting.
