There’s certain insensitivity in India: Kajol

Jaipur, Jan 23 (IANS) Actress Kajol on Saturday said there was “insensitivity” in the country and that people were turning oversensitive on certain issues.

Speaking at the ongoing Jaipur Literature Festival, the “Dilwale” star said: “I do believe that there is certain insensitivity in the country. We are turning oversensitive on certain issues”.


She said the words were being measured and “We need to watch what we say in what context”.

“As public personalities, our duty is to speak well and intelligently,” added the mother of two.

This came after filmmaker Karan Johar on Friday joined the bandwagon of celebrities slamming the intolerance in the country. He said that India is a “tough country” to express one’s views with a legal sword always hanging over the neck.


  1. “As public personalities, our duty is to speak well and intelligently” – report quoting some unknown.

    Who is this lady considering herself to be a public personality? Also, I didn’t see anything intelligent in her comments.

    • Also, I didn’t see anything intelligent in her comments. – Some Rampa

      Well, it could very well be that BOTH of you’ll are not “intelligent”.

  2. Dear readers,

    Travails of being a Muslim in India ; Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and cricketer Mohmmed Sami and the Intolerance debate.

    Is this is a part of PM Modi’s ‘Good governance’ campaign? Will Ajay Devgan will face axe from BJP’s guest political rally for Kajol statements or will be defend Modi like Anupam Kher?

    Jai Hind

    • Now the BJP is starting the same old first attempt when they came into power, Hindi communication in the Government level in a simple form, then make that in made in India pattern (The Economic Times). If anybody question that, they will be classified as ” language murderers” of India. 99% of the BJP MPs and Cabinet members are Hindi language masters, so they want to impose Hindi upon India again like the ” Holy Cow”.
