Kajal Aggarwal (born 19 June 1985) is an Indian film actress and model. She has established a career in the Telugu, Tamil, and Hindi films and has been nominated for four Filmfare Awards South.[4][5][6]

Aggarwal made her acting debut with the 2004 Hindi film Kyun! Ho Gaya Na... and had her first Telugu film release in 2007, Lakshmi Kalyanam. In the same year, she starred in the box office hit Chandamama, which earned her recognition. The 2009 historical fiction Telugu film Magadheera marked a turning point in her career, earning her critical acclaim.

In 2020, a wax figure of Aggarwal was put on display at Madame Tussauds Singapore, making it the first of an actress from South Indian cinema.[11][12]

Early life[edit | edit source]

Aggarwal was born and brought up in a Punjabi family settled in Bombay (present-day Mumbai).[13] Her father Vinay Aggarwal, is an entrepreneur in the textile business and her mother Suman Aggarwal is a confectioner,[2] and also Kajal's business manager. Kajal has a younger sister Nisha Aggarwal, an actress in Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam cinema,[14] who is now married to Karan Valecha (Managing director Golds gyms, Asia).

She studied at St. Anne's High School, fort and completed her pre-university education at Jai Hind College.[15] She pursued her graduation in mass media, with specialization in marketing and advertising, from Kishinchand Chellaram College.[15][16] Having harboured MBA dreams all through her growing years, she intends to achieve a post-graduation degree soon.[17]

Career[edit | edit source]

Film debut and struggles (2004–08)[edit | edit source]

Aggarwal made her acting debut in the 2004 Bollywood film Kyun...! Ho Gaya Na, in which she had a minor supporting role.[18][19] She appeared in veteran Tamil director Bharathiraja's Bommalattam, alongside Arjun Sarja. The film was delayed and released in late 2008.

Aggarwal made her debut in the Telugu film industry and played her first leading role in 2007 in Teja's Lakshmi Kalyanam, alongside Kalyan Ram; it did not fare well at the box office. Later that year, she appeared in the Krishna Vamsi-directed Chandamama, which opened to positive reviews and became her first major successful film.[20] In 2008, she had her first Tamil film release, Perarasu's action entertainer Pazhani, co-starring Bharath. She had two more Tamil releases that year with Venkat Prabhu's comedy-thriller Saroja, in which she did a guest appearance, and Bharathiraja's investigative thriller Bommalattam. Although the former went on to become a commercial as well as a critical success,[21] both films failed to boost her career as her roles were too insignificant.[22] Her Telugu releases Pourudu and Aatadista opposite Sumanth and Nitin, respectively, did not receive positive reviews, but both were successful at the box office.

Public recognition and critical acclaim (2009–11)[edit | edit source]

Aggarwal had four releases in 2009. She first starred opposite Vinay Rai in the Tamil film Modhi Vilayadu, which garnered mixed reviews and was a financial failure. She then appeared in the high budget Telugu historical drama Magadheera, alongside Ram Charan Teja, which saw her playing double roles for the first time. The film, directed by S. S. Rajamouli, received overwhelming critical acclaim, while Aggarwal, in particular, was praised for her portrayal of a princess. Aggarwal was nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Actress in Telugu and nominated for the award for Best Telugu Actress in the South Scope Awards for her performance.[23][24] It was highly successful commercially and broke several records,[25] emerging as the highest-grossing Telugu film of all time.[26][27][28] Magadheera's success turned Aggarwal into one of the most sought-after actresses in Telugu cinema.[29] It was released again in Tamil as Maaveeran in 2011, and was also successful at the box office.[30] Her subsequent releases Ganesh Just Ganesh, opposite Ram and Arya 2 opposite Allu Arjun received mixed reviews from critics, while her performance garnered positive feedback.[31][32]

Aggarwal at IIJW, 2011

Aggarwal's first 2010 release was A. Karunakaran's romantic comedy Darling, which featured her alongside Prabhas and received a favorable response, becoming a commercial success at the box office,[33] with Kajal receiving her second Filmfare nomination for Best Actress. Later that year, Aggarwal appeared in the Tamil thriller film Naan Mahaan Alla, opposite Karthi, which was based on a real-life incident and opened to positive reviews.[34] It was a box office success. The chemistry between Karthi and Aggarwal was widely praised.[35] It was later dubbed in Telugu as Naa Peru Siva in Andhra Pradesh and was a success.[36] Aggarwal's final release in 2010 was another romantic comedy Brindavanam opposite Jr. NTR and Samantha, which received critical acclaim and went on to become a commercial success,[37] while fetching Aggarwal the CineMAA Award for Best Actress.

In 2011, Aggarwal was paired with Prabhas for the second time in the romantic comedy Mr. Perfect, directed by Dasaradh. The film became a critical and commercial success. Aggarwal's performance as a conservative doctor and her chemistry with Prabhas was praised by critics.[38][39] Aggarwal received her third Filmfare nomination for Best Actress in Telugu for her performance.[40] In May, she appeared in Veera, replacing Anushka Shetty[41] and starring opposite Ravi Teja for the first time.[42] The film received moderate reviews.[43]

In July that year, Aggarwal made her Bollywood comeback after seven years with a leading role in the police story Singham, a remake of the same-titled 2010 Tamil film, opposite Ajay Devgn.[44][45] It received mixed reviews from critics,[46] as did her portrayal of a Goan girl Kavya Bhosle, with critics stating that Aggarwal had not much to offer in the hero-centric film. Komal Nahta noted that "Kaajal Aggarwal acts with effortless ease. Her performance is good",[47] while Filmfare wrote that "Kajal who looks pretty and has done what she has been told to, but probably deserved a meatier debut".[48] Nevertheless, the film was a hit at the box office.[9] She was nominated for two awards for her performance: the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut and the Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut. Aggarwal finished 2011 with the Telugu film Dhada, opposite Naga Chaitanya, which failed at the box office.[49]

Commercial success (2012–14)[edit | edit source]

In early 2012, Aggarwal appeared in the Telugu gangster film Businessman, alongside Mahesh Babu, directed by Puri Jagannadh. A Sankranthi release, it opened to positive reviews and was a commercial success.[50][51] Aggarwal's performance, though limited, was praised by critics.[52]

Aggarwal made a comeback to Tamil cinema later that year with two high-profile action flicks. The first was Maattrraan, directed by K. V. Anand and starring Suriya. The film received mixed to positive reviews from critics. Her performance was well received; a review carried by The Indian Express summarised: "Kajal does with utmost sincerity as the foreign language translator Anjali. It's this trait and her graceful demeanour which makes Kajal a pleasant watch".[53]

I prefer Telugu film industry as women are respected more than they are in the Tamil film industry. In Tamil cinema, they care only about their hero. Of course, I don't give a shit and go and sit in my van

 — Aggarwal about the difference she felt between Telugu and Tamil industry.[54]

The second was A. R. Murugadoss's Thuppakki, starring Vijay, in which she played a boxer. It received mostly positive reviews from the critics and was a major commercial success, becoming the second Tamil film ever to collect over 100 crore (US$14 million).[55] Her final release in 2012 was the Telugu romance film Sarocharu, opposite Ravi Teja for the second time.[56] Although her performance was praised by critics, the film received poor reviews and did below-average business at the box office.[57]
