The talented actress makes an unusual comeback to the silver screen with Helicopter Eela. Kajol posted the poster stating, “Holding on to my baby be like and the hashtag motherly love.


Kajol’s look is finally revealed as she gives a smile while making her onscreen son Riddhi (a puppet) taking charge of his life. 

Last week Ajay Devgn (who is also one of the producers of the film) dropped the first poster featuring Riddhi Sen

The film is produced by Ajay Devgn, Dhaval Jayantilal Gada and Aksshay Jayantilal Gada.

In the film, Kajol will be seen playing the role of a single mother and an aspiring singer. Helicopter Eela is an adaptation of Anand Gandhi’s Gujarati play, Beta Kaagdo.

Talking about her role in the film, Kajol said in a statement, “As a mother, I felt a real connection with Eela’s character. She loves her son unconditionally and has built her life around him. But as he grows up, she finds herself becoming more and more dispensable. She has also put her life and dreams on hold, like so many mother’s do. This is a life situation that so many women face once their kids grow up. And, one that I will inevitably face is, what do I do now? How do I hold on to my baby? In a way, Helicopter Eela is a coming of age film, more for Eela rather than it is for her son!” (Quote Source: NDTV)

Kajol has been very selective about her projects from the last couple of years.

Before Helicopter Eela, her last Bollywood film was 2015’s Dilwale opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

In between she made just one film – VIP 2 (Tamil), co-starring Dhanush.
