When Karisma Kapoor, 17, Was Asked About Women in the Kapoor Family Who Didn’t Work in Films | Bollywood

Karisma Kapoor was the first woman of the famous Kapoor family to work in films. While male relatives have married their co-actors like Randhir Kapoor, actor Babita and Rishi Kapoor, actor Neetu Singh, none of the girls in the family have made it to the big screen. Karisma had spoken about it during an interview before the release of her first film.

Karisma, 17, said: “Well I think it will be a choice. My whole family is full of actors and actresses. My father and his brother married heroines. So if they could marry heroines, why couldn’t they work. It’s the same thing.”

When told that stepdaughters also quit the profession after marriage, Karisma told Lehren TV in the interview: “I don’t know why everyone is in this delusion. In fact, my dad is cheering me on now. He always says to me: ‘don’t give up on the name Kapoor’. “

Karisma also revealed that her grandfather Raj Kapoor always knew she was going to be an actor. She said: “He always used to say, ‘Lolo baby, I know you will become (actor). But I just want to tell you one thing, if you become an actress you will be the best, otherwise don’t. “

Karisma made his Bollywood debut with Prem Qaidi in 1991, but the actor first faced the camera while filming Nishchay, released a year later. She gave her first shot with none other than Salman Khan and Reema Lagoo.

Asked about the first day of her first shoot, she said: “I’ve waited so long to face the camera. It was very nice. There was Salman Khan and Reema Lagoo and we did a little scene. The director is so nice, so nice, he’s excellent. Everyone made me feel very comfortable. It was my first time facing the camera. I had never screened anyone before.
