There is this hovering ‘Eela’ element in every Indian mom: Kajol

Acclaimed Bollywood star Kajol, known for her candid nature, confided that it was her mother (veteran actress Tanuja) who gave her the mantra: “If one has a 'working birthday', it augurs a good omen and a busy year ahead.”

The charismatic actress also fondly recalled that she was even slapped for misdeeds, “but behind all that, there was the genuine motherly care and concern.” Little wonder then, at the trailer launch of her latest movie 'Helicopter Eela', a ravishing, rejuvenated Kajol was clad in a classy yellow ethnic costume, as she celebrated her birthday on stage.

The emotionally engaging movie '...Eela', which highlights reinventing parenting, also tackles a dramatic emotional clash between a single-mother and gen-now rebel college-going son (Riddhi Sen), is directed by National Award-winning Pradeep-Da Sarkar. It is co-produced by Kajol's actor-hubby Ajay Devgan.

Incidentally, a 'helicopter parent' in slang, symbolises a monitoring or hyper-caring parent who keeps hovering over a young son or daughter,  just like a 'copter'. The  modest actress Kajol who plays  a 'dual-role', also showers due credit on her designer-stylist Radhika Mehra  for “transforming  me from a screen-mother who  waltzes into a 18 year flash-back-past where she plays a young pop-singer and then again as a glam-mature-looking  mom-cum-college student who resumes her academics from where she dropped-out.”

Meanwhile, producer Ajay Devgn  insists that in “our highly-relatable movie, neither the mother nor the son have negative shades. Despite the friction, there is unspoken mutual bonding.”

The outspoken Kajol has the last word as she emphasises, “There is an 'Eela' element in every Indian mom.”
