The very versatile & spontaneous actress Kajol is all set to receive an award for her commendable work in the field of social service.

Kajol will be felicitated the coveted 'Karmaveer Puraskar' award on the 26th of November in New Delhi.

The 'Karmaveer Puraskar' is a national award for Social Justice & Citizen Action being commissioned to recognize individuals who have been pivotal for leading change beyond their business as usual by being committed on individual levels to work on social issues. The awards are given to individuals from various sectors for their contribution to promote social justice and action.

The award is instituted by iCONGO – A confederation of NGOs and the Khemka Foundation with partners like TISS, BCCI, NASSCOM FOUNDATION, Outlook, Business World, etc.

Apart from being an acclaimed actress, Kajol has always been known for her social work. Kajol is also the appointed goodwill ambassador and patron of the UK based Loomba Trust which is a charity devoted to educating widow's children, particularly in India. Cherie Blair, wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair is President of the Loomba Trust. Kajol also works with an NGO in education called 'Shiksha.'

"I believe that Social commitment is as important as our professional and personal commitment. It is indeed an honour to have been selected for this award. I will keep doing my bit & giving back to society the best in my capacity", affirms Kajol.

We congratulate Kajol for possessing the conviction and compassion to stand up, speak out and lead the change with her positive attitude!

SadSad that everyone is commenting in the same fashion - oh wow..she''s my favorite actress! I love watching Kajol on screen! yadda yadda...has anyone even thought for a second how does that qualify her for such an award???
This award was probably meant for someone more deserving who has spent his/her whole life for a social cause than an actress who is the brand ambassador for an overseas organization. It''s truly sad and more so are the reactions of people..
