Kajol Devgan, who has signed up a film with the Ship of Th­e­seus di­rec­tor Anand Gandhi, says she doesn’t dif­fer­en­ti­ate be­tween films as main­stream cin­ema or art cin­ema. The ac­tress, who was last seen in Ro­hit Shetty di­rec­to­rial Dilwale op­po­site Shah Rukh Khan, said, “I don’t agree with this think­ing com­pletely. There is noth­ing which can be called as main­stream or art film. There are only good films and bad films.” “We make films so that au­di­ence can en­joy it, leave their trou­bles be­hind, and lose them­selves into that story and those char­ac­ters. And I be­lieve I am go­ing to make good films,” she said. Gandhi has writ­ten and di­rected crit­i­cally ac­claimed plays like Su­gandhi, Pratyan­cha, Kshan­ot­sav,

Na and Janashtaru’ and a Gu­jarati play Chal Re­verse Ma Jaiye. The movie will be an adap­ta­tion of one of his plays and Kajol’s hus­band and ac­tor Ajay Devgn will pro­duce it.

Kajol, 41, also spoke about the con­cept of beauty.

“I feel that in to­day’s age, peo­ple have much more knowl­edge than what we had. They know about sun- block, I didn’t. They know about sk­in­care regime, der­ma­tol­o­gists and I think it is a ne­ces­sity to­day.”

We make films so that au­di­ence can en­joy it, leave their trou­bles be­hind, and lose them­selves into that story and those char­ac­ters. And I be­lieve I am go­ing to make good films. Kajol Devgan Bol­ly­wood ac­tress
