Mumbai: Real life mother - daughter duo on reel is a rare norm in Bollywood, and when it involves two top notch stalwarts of the industry like Tanuja and Kajol it becomes even more interesting. Buzz has it that for the first time Kajol and her mother Tanuja are going to act together. According to the reports Tanuja is all set to play Kajol`s reel life mom in the film ‘Toonpur Ka Superhero’ directed by Kireet Khurana.
It is believed that Tanuja has a small role in the film but a significant one. The director managed to rope in literally the complete family with Ajay Devgn playing male lead.
Talking about the casting coup, director Kireet said, “It`s just the way we had planned and visualised it at the script level. After Ajay`s instantaneous `yes` after reading the script, we wanted Kajol to act alongside him. I was told that Kajol is discerning about choosing the scripts which was perfectly understandable for an actor of her caliber.”
Finally when Kajol agreed to do the film, the makers decided to complete the `family` in reel life as well and approached Tanuja for a cameo role. The director said he wanted to mirror the respective real life of Ajay-Kajol and Tanuja in the film.
About the camaraderie between the mother and daughter on sets, director Kireet added, “Tanuja and Kajol share a great mom-daughter rapport. I remember they would always be chatty on the sets and happy to be together like long-lost friends."
