Polish actress Erika Kaar who is acting opposite Ajay Devgn in Shivaay making her Bollywood was more star-struck by his wife, Kajol as she has a huge fan following in Poland.
Erika says “I was a lot more intimidated by Kajol than Ajay. With Ajay I was like ‘Hello man!’ With Kajol it was like’Hello ma’am.’ I was trying to be very respectful. I did not talk much with her,” Erika said in an interview. “We know Kajol because she is huge worldwide. In Poland, when you hear Kajol, people start screaming. They are such huge fans. We also knew Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. It is huge there.”
Kaar was featured in the 2014 BBC television series The Passing Bells, as the love interest of one of the two leads. She has appeared in Poland in the television series Blondynka (2014), and is in the main cast of the television series Az po suffit! (2015–present).
According to Erika, her friends even have night outs where they dance to the popular track “Bole Chudiyan” from the Karan Johar film. “When we have ladies nights, they watch ‘Bole Chudiyan’ and dance. They don’t know the lyrics, nothing, but they love it. So when they learnt that the person I’ll be working with is Kajol’s husband, they forced me to show him the video of how they are dancing. They love her.”
Shivaay is an upcoming action thriller, produced and directed by Devgan.
Erika says she met Kajol while shooting for the film but they did not interact much. “We met in Bulgaria and then in Mussoorie. But since I knew Ajay was working so hard on the project, once his family came, we all tried to give them their quality time.”
The film is Devgn’s second directorial venture after the 2008 romantic-drama U Me Aur Hum, – CINEWS
