Kajol.. my all time favorite, she's really unique

Kajol did not create impact on international arena. But, Aishwarya did.

it's because ash has been world miss in 1994 so is pretty normal. me i prefer kajol. but i also like ash very much

aishu da best

I just love kajol..more talented.

Aishwarya. Kajol does movies with SRK and sticks mostly to the same camp. Aishwarya's career has been much much more diverse.

@munna

wat the **** r u talking about....kajol has done much more versatile movies than ash has ever done...fact ash sucks as an actress...but I wont deny she is very beautiful.

In the international front...ash is know 4 her BEAUTY..n not her acting!. Where as Kajol is known for both beauty but more so her talent.

KAJOL = #1.... she is da combination of sandra bullock n meryl streep of BOLLYWOOD...

south africa loves KAJOL

Kajol fully concentrate on her acting. Ash concentrate on her looks only. Kajol acts naturally. Ash did not know how to act. There was,is and will be no best actress after Kajol for me.

Without any confusions or doubtful "KAJOL" is the phenomenal actress she refer like minakumari,nutan,nargis & Madhubala. And most importance is all the director want to cast her till date because she is just fabulous.
