Ajay Devgan-Kajol (married 1999)
This one is a marriage of opposites. Ajay is the strong silent type, while Kajol is vivacious and effervescent.
What works is Ajay's calming effect on the perennially full-of-beans Kajol. That's what sparked off the two stars when they starred together in Hulchul around five years before their marriage.
Kajol was at the peak of her career and had just had a spate of hits -- Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain -- when she decided to hit the brakes and get married to Ajay Devgan. She demanded, and got, a successful marriage alongside a successful career.
Kajol has made her choices obvious. For the sake of her marriage and her daughter Nysa, Kajol does only select movies (Fanaa released four years after her last film), or works alongside her husband. She and Ajay have now come to represent the quintessential couple in sundry television commercials.
