Southern Star, smiling sensation Kajal had the rare distinction of being the only female guest of honour at the inaugural ceremony of the 43rd International Film Festival (IFFI) in Goa. Kajal who is thoroughly excited says, sharing the stage with “ministers, foreign delegates and officials, for such a big event,” she gushes, was indeed something to write home about. She had attended film festivals in the past as an avid viewer, but “I’m not a festival buff,”.Kajal was completely unaware of the controversy generated by the organisers with organisers giving Tollywood achievements a complete miss in its ‘100yrs tribute’. She said she was only for few minutes and left after ‘Life of Pi’ ended. Speaking about her films she expressed her joy at ‘Tupaki’ success saying “A commercial success always gives a high, since it’s as though all our efforts have been vindicated,”..
Coming to Tollywood and her romance with top stars Jr NTR and Ram Charan Tej for the second time around in films such as Badshah and Nayak, Kajal says “I didn’t find any difficulty matching strides with them in ‘Brindavanam and Magadheera’ respectively,”. Kajal says she is now able to anticipate their reactions and expressions better than before. “Both of them are great professionals and talented too, and I wouldn’t mind working with them again and again,” she adds with a smile.Kajal dwelt on her Bollywood debut and her co star Akshay Kumar and says “My professional life is rocking,” she says fervently, “Touch wood. But on the personal front, I am unable to fulfil my long-cherished dream…” she pauses as we urge her on to spill the beans, “to own a swanky car, either an Aston Martin or a Ferrari. And I will fulfil it very soon. I love speed, driving fast cars.”
