Told Ajay Devgn that I'll marry him only if he provides me a library at home: Kajol
Kajol also urged publishers and authors to translate their work in regional languages.
Jaipur: The first session at the front lawns of Diggi Palace on the third day of the Jaipur Literature Festival had Bollywood star Kajol in conversation with author Ashwin Sanghi and Sudha Sadanand. Kajol announced Sanghi's new book 'The Sialkot Saga' at the festival.
A frequent reader Kajol was asked who did she get her love of books from? "My mother (actress Tanuja) is a voracious reader. I have never seen her without a book. She even reads while eating."
Kajol revealed that she has three rooms in her house that have been turned into libraries. "When my husband asked me to marry him, I told him that I'll marry him only if he provides me a library like the one in 'Beauty And The Beast'. He agreed and that was my honeymoon gift."
Calling Sanghvi's writing style as easy and relatable, Kajol admitted that many of the famous authors have complex writing thereby making their books extremely boring.
Kajol also urged publishers and authors to translate their work in regional languages. "There are so many readers out there who want to read good stories but don't have enough books to read. We should have more works translated."
