Karisma Kapur may seem content doing television, but the actress is not ruling out movies just yet. “Now, after David Dhawan and I have bonded as judges, there’s been a lot of talk of us doing a movie together. It’s nice to know that you are still wanted. I might do a movie with David but, so far I can’t say for sure if I’ll make a comeback or just stay away,” she says.
For now though, she is returning to TV as one of the judges of the stand-up comedy show, Hans Baliye. “I’ve worked with this team on Nach Baliye 4. The comfort level is high,” she smiles. Tell her that Nach Baliye 4 couldn’t match the
ratings of its predecessors and she retorts, “I don’t know much about TV ratings but I do know that the show did well.”
Her daughter, Samaira, she adds, watched the entire series and loved it. And what about husband, Sunjay Kapur? Can we hope to see her back on Nach Baliye as a participant with her baliye? “He’s not a movie or TV buff. For him, it’s only polo and business. He would never agree to doing a Nach Baliye,” she replies.
Talk about a comeback to movies and Kapur says that won’t happen till she lands the perfect script.
The discussion moves to kid sister Kareena who she thinks is a far better actress. “I love Bebo’s choices of movies. I was a more studied actress, she takes decisions on the spur of the moment. We are poles apart as actresses, so we’ve never faced comparisons of any sort. She is a fab dancer and carries off in every kind of role. She makes me proud,” she beams.
And what does she think about Kareena’s choice of a partner, Saif Ali Khan. She says that her sister deserves to be happy after all that happened in the last year-and-a-half. “I’ve known Saif (Ali Khan) as a co-star for years. Whenever we get time off, we laugh about the days we worked together. He’s part of the family now. He keeps Bebo grounded and happy. He’s mature and handles everything well... he loves her to bits. They are the most beautiful couple I know,” she gushes.
And finally, after over seven years of being married, has the itch set in? She laughs, “No way! After so many ups and downs, we have learnt to swim through the tough times with a smile.”
