Ajay Devgn and Kajol started dating each other when they co-starred in Gundaraj (1995). After being dubbed as ‘an unlikely couple’ by the media, the two got married in 1999.

Recalling their wedding, Ajay says, “It was a simple Hindu ceremony and we got married within half an hour on my home’s  terrace. It was not a big show at all.”

He continues, “Since Kajol loves to travel, we went on a world tour for our honeymoon. Although we had taken off two months for our holiday, we returned home in a month’s time. We had managed to travel to many different countries by then.”

Explaining why they  cut their trip short, Ajay says, “Two months felt too long for a holiday! We started missing home and got bored. So we decided to pack our bags and come back to India.”

When asked if elder daughter Nysa is keen about acting, Ajay replies, “Right now, I do not see anything of that sort in Nysa. But whatever profession she chooses, we will surely support her. Yug watches movies. He especially loves to watch all my movies again and again.”

So who among the parents disciplines the kids? “Kajol is a strict mother. I am a strict father sometimes, but I also pamper my children a lot,” reveals Ajay, who credits his success to his father, stuntman Veeru Devgn.

“Yes! I am here only because of my dad. That action sequence in my debut film Phool Aur Kante (1991), where I balance myself on two cars running parallel to one another, was choreographed by him, like so many other action scenes. People whistled and hooted and the film became a hit at the box-office. There has been no looking back for me since,” recalls the actor fondly.
