Karisma Kapoor believes that her sister Kareena’s first hit film post marriage is a sign that Bollywood is now open to casting married leading ladies and mothers in films.
The 38-year-old actor, who raises two kids Samaira and Kiaan, has also worked in a number of movies and TV ads post marriage.
“I absolutely think things are changing. We sisters shouldn’t take all the credit since all married lady actors and mothers out there are making there own space. We are becoming like the West, which is really good. Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet are all moms working, endorsing (brands) and raising a family. I think it is a great time for married heroines and mothers in the industry,” Karisma said.
The Raja Hindustani star has taken up few Bollywood projects after she got married and had children. Her latest movie Dangerous Ishhq came after a gap of six years. Karisma says she can easily do three movies a year but is in no rush after having a fruitful career of two decades in Bollywood.
“Honestly, I could sign three films and be on the sets all the time but that’s not my idea of working today. I have had a great career and I am thankful that my fans enjoyed watching me in a movie and want me to do another one,” she said.
Karisma says she is reading a few scripts and is expected to be back on sets sometime next year.
