Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kajol has started shooting for husband Ajay Devgn’s home production ‘Eela’.
Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, Eela is an adaptation of Anand Gandhi’s Gujarati play ‘Beta Kaagdo’. Kajol, who was last seen in ‘VIP 2’ opposite Dhanush, will play the role of a single mother in the flick.
Earlier, in an interview with a leading website, Pradeep said, “I was offered the script around four months ago. It took me a while to understand the Gujarati tone but eventually I fell in love with this extremely emotional story which boasts of some really strong characters and there’s a chance of people getting really close to them.”
“I am getting involved in the dialogue and character-building as there are a few insights that I want to incorporate to make the film more endearing. This is not like Parineeta, where everything was detailed, this is more freeflowing, a character and music driven film,” he added.
Pradeep also praised Kajol and said, “She’s an awesome actress who picks up a role and owns it. She has her own style, charm and a particular way of talking that enhances the character.”
