‘Raja Hindustani’ has scope to be taken forward: Karisma Kapoor

Added by harini on Aug 29, 2012

Bollywood has currently started a new trend of making sequels to the hit movies from the 90’s. The sequels of the movies ‘Thanedar’, ‘Aashiqui’ and ‘Ghayal’ are currently underway.

Actress Karisma Kapoor, who used to rule Bollywood in 90’s, thinks that her movie ‘Raja Hindustani’ that also starred Aamir Khan has scope to be taken forward.

“Sometimes I always think with ‘Raja Hindustani’, you would want to know what happened between Raja and Aarti because it culminated at the marriage point. So it would be interesting and that (movie) has a story line to go forward,” she said in an interview to IANS.

In the 1996 movie Karisma Kapoor played a rich but simple girl Aarti, who falls for a taxi driver named Raja (played by Aamir Khan).

The movie went on to become a blockbuster hit and both Aamir and Karisma had won the Filmfare best actor and best actress award for the movie.

Currently Bollywood has opened up to making women-centric movies and Karisma Kapoor said that it’s an added pressure to carry such roles.

“We as actors should look at it like that (added responsibility). We should do a film because the role might inspire the audience and what basically matters is your audience should love you and love your film,” the 38 year old actress concluded.

The actress, who married Delhi businessman Sanjay Kapur in 2003 and is a mother of two daughters Samaira, born in 2005, and two-year-old son Kiaan, made a comeback on big screen this year with Vikram Bhatt’s 3D movie ‘Dangerous Ishq’.

But the movie failed miserably at the box-office and tanked without a trace.
