Kajol: I don’t see an ageist issue in Bollywood, it is all in your head.

Ageism is a conversation that has been going on around film industries across countries. For Kajol, who has been a part of the Hindi film industry for 29 years, says while part of it is true, there are also instances which prove that female actors are not discriminated against.

“The reality is that we had Sharmila Tagore, Sadhna, Nargis Dutt, who were working way after the time they were married and were like in their 40s. Yes, I agree today the time is such that everybody has a binocular view on it. Today we are suddenly looking at things which we never noticed before. But this was all happening earlier as well. Even my mother (Tanuja) never stopped working,” she points out.
