KAZOL GETS READY FOR ANOTHER INNINGS

Actress Kajol says though family responsibilities and her husband actor Ajay Devgn's film production company has been keeping her busy, she is waiting for a right script to act in a movie again. "It has to be a good script with a tight screenplay. The production house needs to be good too. It is as important as your role in the film," Kajol told PTI here today. Daughter of actress Tanuja and film director Shomu Mukherjee, Kajol made her acting debut with Bekhudi in 1992 while she was in school. The 38-year-old actress is known for her memorable performances in films like 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge', 'Gupt', 'Dushman', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', 'Fanaa', 'My Name Is Khan', among others. After getting married to actor Ajay Devgn, she took a sabbatical from full-time acting in 2001 and returned to films with the 2006 romantic thriller 'Fanaa'. After that she appeared in films in cameo appearances. She was last seen in a prominent role in Karan Johar's home production 'We Are Family' (2010). When she is not doing movies, Kajol said her two children-daughter Nysa and son Yug-- and husband's production house keep her busy. "Looking after babies is a full-time job. But spending time with my kids gives me a great amount of personal satisfaction and I am enjoying each and every moment of this amazing experience that god has gifted me with," Kajol said. "We also have a production house-- Ajay Devgn Films. I am not involved in it 24x7. But yes, I like overseeing everything," she said. Her pairing with superstar Shah Rukh Khan had been a highlight of her career, as they delivered a number of romantic hits like 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge', 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai', 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham', among others. "I think it is got to do with the movies we have made together. They have all done well. There is a cinematic history that has contributed to the overall persona of us as a pair. We share a good comfort level and are also good friends," she said.

WORLD's FIRST UNDERWORLD TENNIS COURT IN DUBAI

Dubai, which boasts of the world's highest tennis court, may also become home to the first underwater tennis centre where spectators can watch games from below or above the sea life through a massive glass dome. Krzysztof Kotala, a Polish architect who owns a studio in Warsaw, is currently seeking investment from local players to make the ambitious project a reality. Interestingly, the proposed location for the project (arguably one of the world's lowest tennis courts) is just next door to the highest tennis court atop the Burj al Arab skyscraper in Dubai. "There is not an investor but I would like to get interest (from them) as I think it is a good idea," Kotala, 30, was quoted as saying by a local magazine. When asked why he chose Dubai for his project, Kotala said the Gulf city had a rich tradition of tennis. "This will be something original. This should be somewhere where there is the tradition of tennis. Dubai is perfect for this idea," he said. The in…
