Kajol and Ajay Devgn married in 1999 after a four-year relationship. The couple have two children together: Nysa Devgan and Yug Devgan.
The love story of actors Kajol and Ajay Devgn is nothing less than a fairy tale. The two were labeled an “unlikely” couple due to their contrasting personalities. While Kajol was known for her bubbly and talkative nature, Ajay was an introverted person. On Kajol’s 48th birthday, let’s shed some light on their love story.

They met on the sets of their 1995 film Hulchul. Kajol picked up the project after Divya Bharti, the film’s lead actor, died. The two dated each other for almost 4 years later, but hid their relationship from the public. The couple tied the knot at their home in Mumbai on February 24, 1999. Later, after their marriage, they left for a two-month honeymoon to Europe.
Speaking to Neha Dhupia on an episode of No Filter Neha in 2018, Kajol opened up about how no one thought their marriage was a good idea and how she convinced her father for her marriage. Kajol said: “No one wanted us to get married except his family and my family. My family was also dubious. My father (the late filmmaker Shomu Mukherjee) didn’t speak to me for a week when I told him I wanted to get married. He was like this from: ‘Why do you want to get married, you are still so young and your career is going so well’, and I thought: ‘But I want to get married!’ Ajay and I were very different people, so a lot of people had concerns about how we would be as a couple, and even then we weren’t very social, not many people had met us together or knew how we were together.”
On April 20, 2003, the two welcomed their daughter Nysa Devgan. Seven years later, on September 13, 2010, their son Yug Devgan was born.
Last year, in January, Kajol made her OTT debut with Renuka Shahane’s film Tribhanga, which appeared on Netflix. She will soon make her web series debut with a Disney+ Hotstar show. She will also be seen in Salaam Venky. The film to be directed by Revathi was announced in October last year. Vishal Jethwa and Aahana Kumra will also star in the lead roles. Actor Aamir Khan will have a cameo in the film.
