Today is the day to say janamdin mubarak(Happy Birthday) to Karisma Kapoor. She was born on this day in 1974 in the city of dreams — Bombay, as it was back then. Of course, she’s come a long way since then.
When she entered the Hindi movie industry in 1991 with Prem Qaidi, the actress herself greatly exceeded the popularity of the movie. Although 1992 through 1996 brought with them a series of movies, none of them stand out today. That is, of course, until Raja Hindustani came about in 1996. As the female lead opposite Aamir Khan, Lolo won her first Filmfare Award for this role. The next year brought with it the success of Dil to Pagal Hai and another Filmfare Award, this time for supporting actress. Lastly, Fiza brought with it the Filmfare Award again in 2000. The next year, she received the favor of most critics for her portrayal of a second wife in the film Zubeidaa. One of her movies, Mere Jeevan Saathi, released only last year because it was delayed.
Although Karisma likes to keep her personal life under wraps, we know that she has been linked with Ajay Devgan and Abhishek Bachchan. In fact, the latter was actually engaged to Lolo, but they split up. She went on to marry industrialist Sanjay Kapur, and Abhi (in case you live under a rock or something) recently married former Miss World Aishwarya Rai. Progressing with that, surely Karisma thinks of 2005 as one of the best years, for that was when she gave birth to her beautiful daughter Samaira.
Anyway, Lolo, you’ve come a long way in the industry and in your personal life. We know that there have been troubles, but what’s life without them? So take this birthday as an opportunity to sit back, relax, and prepare — because we know we haven’t heard the last from you yet!
