Karisma Kapur has also worked in a number of movies post marriage
Karisma Kapur believes that her
sister Kareena's first hit film post marriage is a sign that
Bollywood is now open to casting married actresses and mothers
in lead roles.
The 38-year-old actress, who raises two kids Samaira and
Kiaan, has also worked in a number of movies post marriage.
"I absolutely think things are changing. We sisters
shouldn't take all the credit though as all married actresses
and mothers out there are making their own space.
"We are becoming like the West, which is really good.
Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet are all moms
working, endorsing and raising a family. I think it is a great
time for married actresses and mothers in the industry,"
Karisma told PTI.
The Raja Hindustani star has taken up few Bollywood
projects in the recent past. Her latest movie Dangerous
Ishhq came after a gap of six years.
Karisma says she can easily do three movies a year but is
in no rush after having a fruitful career of two decades in
"Honestly, I could sign three films and be on the sets
all the time but that's not my idea of working today. I have
had a great career and I am thankful that my fans enjoyed
watching me in a movie and want me to do another one," she
Karisma, who was in the Capital to unveil the new TV show
Suraj-The Rising Star, an animation serial on Colors, says
she is reading a few scripts and is expected to be back on
sets sometime next year.
The program is the Indian version of Japanese show Star
Of Giants and is in collaboration with Japanese production
"Animated shows and movies are rare in India. I hope
people make some more of them so we can take our kids to the
theatre. We see educational programs but do not watch
motivational and inspirational programs."
Besides being busy with endorsements and films, Karisma
says her kids keep her on her toes.
"They keep me busy all the time which I think is really
good and I love being a mom, that is the most important thing
to me in this whole world. Giving my children the right values
and bringing them up correctly is very important to me."
