Bollywood couple Kajol and Ajay Devgn, who on Saturday reached Lonavala to support Kajol's mother and actress Tanuja's campaign "Save Environment", cherished their childhood memories associated with the place.

Tanuja, who also owns a house in Lonavala, has been trying to raise awareness among the local people to save the environment. Besides, she is member of the Lonavala-Khandala Citizens Forum (LKCF).

Recalling the cherishing time spent at Lonavala, Kajol said: "I have so many memories of this place when it was all barren. I mean there were no bungalow. In our area, besides ours, there was only one bungalow and nothing was there."

"And I learnt how to cycle in Lonavala itself. My dad taught me cycling in front of our bungalow but now a park has been built there, a row of houses has come there. But before that, it was just a free road."

"I still remember mom used to say to us to come home by 1 p.m but we used to go around and sit for four-five hours, just walk around the whole Lonavala, climbed the bushes and all," added Kajol, who has been actively supporting various social and environmental issues with her husband.

Ajay, who too visited Lonavala in his childhood days, shared his memories associated with the place.

"I used to come here a lot in my childhood, especially during rains. At that time, I used to either take leave from the school or bunk off to come here. That time it used to be all open and a small beautiful hill station," Ajay said.

"Now it has become a full fledged city. There is no less difference between Lonavala and Mumbai now," added the the 44-year-old.
