Rumour has it that superstar Kajol Devgan is charging a jaw-dropping 2.5 crores for her role in My Name Is Khan opposite Shah Rukh Khan. This puts her in the same class as Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif. “Even though Kajol and Karan Johar, the director, are friends, they have a very professional approach towards work,” says a source, “Karan was willing to pay Kajol her full market price.”
It’s also being said that Kajol will do a cameo role in Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots. The two worked together on Fana’a. Kajol also has two other productions lined up – the first being a live action animation with husband Ajay Devgan called Toonpur Ka Superhero. The second is the intriguing Koochie Koochie Hota Hai – an animated version of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. It will also have the voice of Shah Rukh Khan.
Kajol and SRK will be filming in Mumbai from March to May for My Name is Khan and then they return to LA in June for the final slice of filming. The film is scheduled for release later in the year and may well be in competition with Aamir’s 3 Idiots.
