Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor feels that things have changed in Bollywood and now married actresses too have a place in showbiz.
Married actresses like Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit are all set to make a comeback on big screen, while some other actresses like Sonali Bendre and Ranveena Tandon have busied themselves with television shows, fashion shows and endorsement deals.
“It does not matter today, whether you are 19, 29 or 39 in Bollywood. If someone like Sridevi can make a comeback with an interesting film and that too in the lead role, then it goes on to prove that good scripts are coming in the way of older actresses like it happens in the west. Besides, I also feel that a talented actress will always get good work regardless of her age. So age is just a number now in B-Town. And fashion shows or endorsements are also exciting for us,” said Karisma Kapoor to a daily.
Karisma Kapoor made a comeback on big screen after her marriage with horror movie ‘Dangerous Ishq’ this year. But unfortunately the movie failed to create an impact at the box-office.
“There are hits and misses and as an actress we are mentally ready for all that. I did the film because I wanted my children to come on the sets and see my work place. I had always done the song-dance routine so there was no point in doing a similar film for what was supposed to be my comeback vehicle. Besides hits and flops, nervous Fridays don't exist for me anymore. I am so happy that I am no longer in the rat race. Everyone needs to know that I have a life beyond movies now,” said Karisma.
The actress said that her kids were her priority at the moment and she wasn’t even sure that she will sign another movie any time soon.
“I didn't even know that I would be doing films again and would make a comeback. There are no plans that always work in life. For me the secret to happiness is being positive and looking at the brighter side of my life. Right now my utmost priority is my children,” she concluded.
