For almost seven years now, Karisma Kapoor has been staying away from the screen. Therefore, we have been certainly deprived of her excellent performances. On several occasions, Karisma Kapoor has said that she may not choose a role in movies anytime soon as she wishes to stay at home with her kids. However, she will be back onscreen now through another platform.
Over the years, Karishma has been doing advertisement and fashion events. Sometime, she has made special appearance in movies like Zero also.
On asking whether she is nervous in order to work in front of camera after so long. In reply, Karishma has said “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.”
Regarding excitement of her children about the digital debut, Karishma has said “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”
Reason behind choosing ‘Mentalhood’, Karishma has said “The entire show is based on motherhood, the ups and downs, high and lows and all the various emotions of being a mom.”
About her character in Mentalhood, Karishma has said that she will be seen as Meira Sharma who has been a mother from small town. However, she has to deal with the ‘Mumbai momzilaas’ now.
Explaining her character further, she has shared “Out of choice I wanted to be with my family and children. After a while when I heard this script it was so interesting, the script was about today’s mother and it was so strong. Women of all ages and all those who are mothers will identify with my characters. It is also something which I am going through right now. Young parents and older parents will identify with Mentalhood. My character is today’s mom and as a human, she will do the right thing and is real. I am thoroughly enjoying shooting with all my lovely co-actors”
Karishma Kohli will be helming the project which will showcase journey of different kinds of mothers.
