Karisma Kapoor is all set to make her digital debut in Ekta Kapoor’s Mentalhood, a comedy about the madness of motherhood.
She will be paired opposite Dino Morea, her co-star from Baaz : A Bird In Danger in 2003.
It was the same year when Karisma had tried to consolidate her career by playing the lead in the television series Karishma: The Miracles Of Destiny, a huge disaster.
Nine years later, after marriage and two children, Karisma made a comeback to big screen acting in Vikram Bhatt’s reincarnation saga Dangerous Ishq. The project, styled around Karisma’s personality, featured her in four roles. It was a flop as well.
Now, seven years later, she makes a return to acting on the OTT platform.
“Her children are grown up," a family friend tells Subhash K Jha. "She has lost a lot of weight and makes sure she gets clicked at parties and airports. She has been trying to stay in the limelight through her association with her sister Kareena and brother-in-law Saif Ali Khan. But Lolo (as Karisma is fondly known) is getting restless. She wants to come back to acting."
Subhash K Jha has written about movies and movie stars for more than 40 years. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
