The Kapoor clan has forever been in the limelight for generations. Karisma Kapoor, who has contributed some stellar performances with her films, recently opened up about the hurdles she had to face, despite coming from an illustrious family.
Karisma always looked up to her grandfather and the biggest showman of Indian cinema Raj Kapoor. Lolo told the Digital catalog, Humans of Bombay, “Growing up, I used to visit my granddad on set—& his talent would leave me mesmerised. Once I was there when he was directing ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’. I loved the sets, camera & lights! I knew I wanted to become an actor & contribute to the family legacy. When I told my granddad, he said, ‘It’s glamourous but it’s not a bed of roses—you will have to work very hard.’ That stayed with me. I wanted to act but my inner voice made me doubt myself (sic).”
