Kajol participated in the very first season of the MTV show Forbidden Angels and won the title. The show is about highlighting girls from small towns and supporting their dreams to make it big in the industry. She auditioned online and won the title among 2000 girls. Actress and Bigg Boss 11 runner-up, Hina Khan hosted the show. In an interview with Opening Doorz, she spoke about the driving force that made her win. “When the show host Hina Khan announced my name I was tremendously happy but I also had tears in my eyes. These were tears of happiness I felt at that moment. I never lost my courage because the dreams to achieve something were not mine alone, they were also my sister’s and mother’s dreams”. She plans on still going for auditions and sending her profile to production houses. Kajol has also done a few modeling assignments since her win.
When asked about her experience, she said, “Forbidden Angels was a show in which only the participant’s talents were judged. The production house and this show only looked at my talent and I am grateful to them for that. I hope more shows like these come up and more artists who perhaps might not have as many followers get to put their talent on screen and get recognition”. She also believes that people with dusky skin face a lot of challenges in the industry. She hopes to break the stigma and eradicate such prejudices.
