My kids shouldn’t be under pressure by the media, public: Kajol

Vastavam web: At a time when every move of star kids is being documented and written about, Kajol’s children are away from the whole frenzy, something which the actress says is a conscious decision of her and husband Ajay Devgn. The couple shares two kids daughter Nysa and son Yug together, and the actress says keeping them away from the spotlight at large is an attempt to give the children their space where they are not bogged down by any kind of pressure.”They shouldn’t be under pressure by the media, public or even unknowingly by me, to become something. It should be their choice what they want to become, I will give them the platform to have that choice, but the choice has to be theirs with a free and clear mind.”
“Yug knows his father is an action star and he has done so many films. But at the end of the day, we have to explain to them that this is work, this is an outer personality which people look at us from the outside. We are your parents first and after that everything else.” Kajol, 42, tied the knot in 1999 when she was at the peak of her career and had her first child in 2003. She had her second child seven years later.”It is no sacrifice. I had children because I wanted to take their responsibility. It is really not a sacrifice, they are my top priority. Work is a part of my life and if God willing, it will forever be but my family, kids, they are life itself,” she says.The actress is currently gearing up for the release of her next, “VIP 2”, directed by Soundarya Rajinikanth.
