Karishma Kapoor
Born to one of the most illustrious family of Bollywood one thought Karishma Kapoor, daughter of Babita and Randhir Kapoor, had a silver spoon to her privilege and all doors would open to her automatically.

Only Karishma and her fans know what it took for her to reach where she is today. Hardwork, patience, pitfalls, perseverance, she has seen and gone through them all.

Karishma's career started with prancing along seashores and trees to mundane numbers opposite a small-time hero. Under the guidance of mother Babita, an actress of consequence herself, Karishma improved on her acting, dialogue delivery and dance skills, catapulting herself into a league where she could work in better films.

Exploitative that the film industry is, Lolo, as she is fondly addressed, wasn't spared from taking the brunt. There were vulgar dance numbers, revealing clothes and the rest of the publicity gimmicks that Karishma did which probably otherwise she would not have looked at. She was ambitious and wanted to prove to the world of her capabilities, so she waited with patience.


Her perseverance paid off. Today Karishma is an actress of reckoning and a star in her own right. Every bit of this achievement goes to her hard work and determination. On the event of her younger sister's entry into films, 25-year-old Karishma already relaxes and basks in the glory of her achievements.

A multifaceted actress, the pair of Karishma-Govinda gave several hits. But it was in 'Raja Hindustani’ that one saw a shift in Karishma's performance. So power-packed was she in the film that it immediately fetched her the Filmfare's Best Actress award for 1996, apart from being the biggest hit of that year.
