Mumbai: Kajol issued a clarification after receiving backlash on her recent remarks on political leaders during an interview. In an interview during the promotion of his upcoming courtroom drama ‘The Trial’, he said that there are political leaders who do not have any educational background. Kajol took to her Twitter handle to clarify her intentions.
She tweeted, “I was only talking about education and its importance. My intention was not to demean any political leader, we have some great leaders who are taking the country on the right path.”
Earlier in an interview he had said, “Change, especially in a country like India, is slow. It’s too slow. Because we are steeped in our traditions and steeped in our thought processes and of course, it has to do with education.”
He further said, “You have political leaders who do not have a background in the educational system. I’m sorry, but I’m going to go out and say it. I am being ruled by politicians, many of them who do not have a background in the educational system.” That approach, I think education at least gives you a chance to see a different perspective.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kajol was last seen in Netflix’s ‘Lust Stories 2’. She will be seen playing the lead role in the new web series titled ‘The Trial – Pyaar, Kanoon, Dhoka’.
It is a gritty courtroom drama that uncovers the moral dilemmas that propel Noyonika to take responsibility for her family and her freedom. Driven to prove herself in the competitive world of law and navigate her way through complicated relationships while seeking justice for her husband, Nayonika navigates the difficult challenges thrown by her destiny.
Talking about the show, Kajol said, “Complexities are what defines a character for me and the layers around Nayonika are what spoke to me when I first got the role. Noyonika felt personal, I immediately felt protective of her and it reaffirmed my belief that choosing The Trial – Love, Law, Cheating on Disney+Hotstar is my first step into the longer format. Suparn Verma has created a world where the vulnerability of the characters meets the brutal situations life throws at them. The audience will feel and feel it with Nayonika as she makes tough choices because I did.”
Suparn S Verma has directed the show, which is set to release on July 14 on Disney+Hotstar.
