Ac­tor Ka­jal Ag­gar­wal (left) is in a happy space. Af­ter mak­ing her Bol­ly­wood de­but with Kyun! Ho Gaya Na... (2004) she went on to star in Tel­ugu and Tamil films op­po­site ac­tors such as Allu Ar­jun and Prab­has. Her lat­est film is a Tel­ugu po­lit­i­cal-thriller, Nene Raju Nene Mantri with ac­tor Rana Dag­gu­bati, who has gained global star­dom for his role as Bhal­laladeva in the Baahubali fran­chise. While ru­mours are do­ing rounds that the two are see­ing each other, Ka­jal clar­i­fies, “We have been friends for a long time and are ex­tremely com­fort­able with each other. Also, he’s a hard­work­ing pro­fes­sional.”

Asked if the suc­cess of Baahubali has changed Rana, and she says, “No, Rana has al­ways been a good ac­tor. Baahubali just got him the recog­ni­tion that he de­serves.”

Ka­jal, who is seen less in Bol­ly­wood and more in the South, says she is wait­ing for the per­fect role. “If I get a Hindi script that I like, I’ll do it. When I’m of­fered roles across in­dus­tries, I choose the best among them.

I be­lieve in qual­ity-driven roles, which gives me cre­ative sat­is­fac­tion,” says Ka­jal, who was last seen in Sing­ham (2011) with ac­tor Ajay Devgn.
