Karisma Kapoor on her Comeback: 'My Kids are Excited that I Am Working Again'
Karisma Kapoor, who has not been seen on screen in a full-fledged role for the past seven years, will make a comeback finally
Karisma Kapoor’s comeback has been the subject of discussion for a long time and now it has finally materialised. The actress says that her children are really excited that she has joined back work."They are excited that I am working again. I started working at a very young age. Everyone in my family has been an actor and contributed to this industry. I have grown up with a really strong work ethic, and I think that's hopefully gone down to my children as well," said the actress in an interview to IANS. It's been over seven years since Karisma Kapoor acted in a full-fledged feature film. She has made her appearance in several ad films and in a guest appearance in Shah Rukh Khan's last film, Zero.
As reported earlier, Karisma will be next seen in ALTBalaji's Mentalhood. "It (acting) is ingrained in you. It is something that never goes away. I was waiting for something really interesting. It was out of my choice that I didn't do any film because my kids were very young. It was out of choice that I wanted to be at home with my family and children," she said. On why she picked ALTBalaji's "Mentalhood", she shared: "The entire show is based on motherhood, the ups and downs, high and lows and all the various emotions of being a mom."
Karisma plays the character of Meira Sharma -- a small town mother trying to navigate through this jungle of 'Mumbai momzilaas'. "She is a mom, who has a blog where she shares her emotions. Even though she is old fashioned, she is today's woman," she said. This is her first project on a digital platform. "I have been lucky enough to have such a wonderful career and I have done a variety of roles. This is something different for me...a different platform. I have been a radio jockey also. I like trying out different things," she said.
Karisma had tried her hand at different mediums before. Years ago, she had made her TV debut in an epic show on the now-defunct Sahara TV. However, the show didn’t do too well. Even her comeback film called Dangerous Ishq directed by Vikram Bhatt flopped at the box office.
