|I’ve made changes, won’t call them compromises,” Kajol Devgan
Q. What is your style of mom - friend, disciplinary or in the middle?
I am a little bit of everything, depending on the age of the child, the situation and the need. My daughter is 15 years old and my son is seven years old, so I was a dictator who set boundaries, his best bud, and sometimes just a mom. But above all, I am their personal secretary who does odd jobs and organizes things.
Q. Whew! It looks like a lot of roles. Do you want to call yourself a supermom?
I do not know this nickname, but I think that mothering is a learned skill - most learn on the job and I am also one of them. The hardest part is getting the right formula and not making too many mistakes.
Even if you falter, realize where you went wrong and correct it. I hope I did it well and my kids love me.

Kajol was born in Mumbai from the family of Mukherjee-Samarth films of Bengali-Marathi origin. Her mother, Tanuja, is an actress, while her father Shomu Mukherjee was a director and producer. Shomu died in 2008 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Her youngest sister, Tanishaa is also an actress. Her maternal aunt was actress Nutan, and her maternal grandmother, Shobhna Samarth, and her great-grandmother, Rattan Bai, were both involved in Hindi cinema.
His paternal uncles, Joy Mukherjee and Deb Mukherjee, are film producers, while his paternal and maternal grandfathers, Sashadhar Mukherjee and Kumarsen Samarth, have been filmmakers. Kajol's cousins Rani Mukerji, Sharbani Mukherjee and Mohnish Behl are also Bollywood actors; while another of his cousins, Ayan Mukerji, is director.
Kajol describes himself as "extremely playful" as a child. She added that she was very stubborn and impulsive from an early age.
Her parents separated when she was young; but according to Tanuja, Kajol was not affected by the split like "we never discussed before".
In the absence of her mother, Kajol was cared for by her maternal grandmother, who "never let me think that my mother had gone to work".
According to Kajol, his mother instilled a sense of independence at a very young age. Growing up between two distinct cultures, she inherited her "Maharashtrian pragmatism" from her mother and her "Bengali temperament" from her father.
