After making her acting debut with Bekhudi, Kajol starred in the superhit 1993 thriller Baazigar, opposite Shah Rukh Khan. Her pairing with SRK became legendary and they went on to act in several more films together, including Karan Arjun, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, My Name Is Khan and most recently Dilwale. Kajol earned critical acclaim for playing the antagonist in the 1997 thriller Gupt for which she won a Filmfare Award for Best Villain.
