Bollywood power couple Ajay Devgn and Kajol are celebrating their 22nd wedding anniversary on Wednesday. The couple got married on February 24, 1999. To make the day special, actress Singham shared a photo of a custom wine bottle. It bears the words “Bottled in 1999. Only Edition”.
Kajol and Ajay met on the sets of the film Hulchul in 1995. The two were not friends then. In fact, Kajol found Ajay weird. On the Karan talk show Johar Koffee With Karan, the Tribhanga actress said her first comment on Ajay, “Who is this guy? What kind of personality does he have? He sits in one corner and smokes like a chimney and even without talking to anyone. ”But, eventually, Kajol’s attitude towards Ajay changed, and the two became close friends. Kajol even received advice from Ajay about her love life.
Two years later, on the sets of their film Gundaraj, the couple began dating. After four years of courtship, the couple decided to tie the knot, and with actress Singham shy to the media, he chose to hold a close-knit wedding reception on the stage of his house. He was even misleading people about his place of marriage. They took the wedding vows in the traditional Maharshtrian style, away from the media attention.
Kajol believes that Ajay has been made more relaxed. Through one of her interviews with PTI, she said, “I have been more relaxed… it has brought a lot of stability to my life… we are different people but we believe in the same things . ”She said,“ Someone has to be loved but you have to be respected too. I have great respect for him and that is one of the reasons why our relationship has lasted so far. ”

On the mystery of her successful marriage, Kajol said, “You have to work on all relationships including marriage every day. You can’t work or do things at times just like a birthday or Diwali, etcetera. You need to invest time and work. ”
The couple, who were last seen together in Om Raut’s historical drama, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, are the parents of Yug’s son and daughter Nysa.
