I took a break on my own for my children: Karisma Kapoor

After seven long years, Karisma Kapoor is back to working ways and this time in the digital platform where the actress will be seen in ALT Balaji’s Motherhood.

The actress has been doing ads and events while making special appearances for friendship in movies like ‘Zero’.

Talking about getting back to work, the actress told: “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.”

Her children — Samaira and Kiaan — are also excited about her getting back to work.

“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,” said the actress.

But she didn’t jump at any offer that came her way. On why she picked ALTBalaji’s “Mentalhood”, she shared: “The entire show is based on motherhood, the ups and downs, highs and lows and all the various emotions of being a mom.”

Karisma plays the character of Meira Sharma — a small town mother trying to navigate through this jungle of ‘Mumbai momzilaas’.

“She is a mom, who has a blog where she shares her emotions. Even though she is old fashioned, she is today’s woman.”

“I have been lucky enough to have such a wonderful career and I have done a variety of roles. This is something different for me…a different platform. I have been a radio jockey also. I like trying out different things,” She signs off.
