Trust actress Karisma Kapoor to move in with the times, and she lived up to our expectations as she graced sister Kareena Kapoor Khan‘s radio show to sit down for a tete-a-tete and speak about staying relevant, how she manages to be radiant, her role model and the pressure of making a comeback in the industry. As the glamorous sisters sat down for a chat, Karisma unapologetically revealed who her role model was.
“Today, you are my role model. We are in the same profession, and the kind of strength we offer to each other is amazing. Apart from you, our mom has been an inspiration who single-handedly raised us so well,” said the evergreen star.
Six years apart, the daughters of veteran actors Randhir Kapoor and Babita looked all radiant on the show and Karisma credited it to the genes.
The actress, who is a mother of two, was asked about the recipe of staying relevant, to which Karisma said, “There is no recipe… It’s all about moving with the times. I have spent 27 years in the industry. The formula for me is to keep up with the times and attempting different things which further helps to stay relevant. And, I guess it’s the inner positivity which reflects on my face.”
After shelling big hits like ‘Raja Hindustani’, ‘Raja Babu’, ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, ‘Biwi No. 1’, ‘Zubeidaa’ and ‘Fiza’ Karisma went missing from the big screen for a while and now feels it’s unfair that actresses face a “comeback pressure,” especially after motherhood. “I don’t get this comeback term as it isn’t used or said in other industry when women have rejoined their workplace. We have an added pressure because we are from the entertainment industry. But, I am glad that game is changing and people have become so open-minded.”
The episode featuring Karisma will reportedly be aired on the radio this Wednesday.
