She has asked her fans and followers to salute women and heroines for what all they go through to just look good on screen.

Taking to Instagram, Kajol shared a video clip from Fanaa with the song Mere Haath Mein playing in the background. She wrote, “One of my oh so many “comebacks” but Zooni will always remain special to me simply because I just had to be me without my glasses. #Nerds rock! And since you guys loved my memories let me give you some more.”
A difficult song shoot that was scrapped
Sharing about a song shoot in snow, she added, “Poland was -27 degrees centigrade on the first day of shoot and I was wearing a thin chiffon salwar kameez on a frozen lake with the wind chill factor aside… #AamirKhan on the other hand had bought himself a nice thick jacket from the local market just for the shoot (face with rolling eyes emojis). So his face did not have the natural pain that was there on my frozen face!! And the cherry on top of the whole scenario was that the whole song was scrapped and RESHOT when we got back to Mumbai!! Can we all just salute women and heroines all over the world who do these things and much worse just to look good! #17YearsOfFanaa.”
