Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karisma Kapoor together make one of the most famous and revered sister duos of Bollywood. While you last saw Karisma on the big screen in 2012 film, Dangerous Ishhq, Kareena's latest film in her filmography is Veere Di Wedding (2018). And Bebo (as Kareena is affectionately called by her family, friends and fans), is back with her radio show called Ishq 104.8 FM's What Women Want.

Kareena Kapoor Khan's latest guest on her show is her very own sister, Karisma Kapoor. In the promo videos which have surfaced online, Karisma spoke candidly and in fact, praised her sister, Kareena and called Bebo a role model for her. Karisma shared with Kareena, "Today, you are my role model. We are in the same profession, and the kind of strength we offer to each other is amazing. Apart from you, our mom has been an inspiration who single-handedly raised us so well."
The most interesting and funniest part of the chat was when Karisma revealed that she is often trolled on social media for something which her sister does. On being asked about what she is trolled for, Karisma said, "Honestly, about you! So it is really funny. Aap apni behen ko kaho itna pout na kiya kare.“ Adding further about what other things she is trolled for, the Raja Hindustani actress replied, "It's a mixed bag and it's really funny. Then maybe like, if I've not posted a picture in a long time with you or the family, there's so many of your fans, who are like "Please ma'am, can you put a picture?' So I think it's a wonderful relationship also."
Karisma also commented on the recipe for staying relevant. She shared, "There is no recipe... It's all about moving with the times. I have spent 27 years in the industry. The formula for me is to keep up with the times and attempting different things which further helps to stay relevant."
We all know that Karisma hasn't been doing movies for a long time. When Bebo asked her about the same, Lolo retorted, "I don't get this comeback term as it isn't used or said in other industry when women have rejoined their workplace. We have added pressure because we are from the entertainment industry. But, I am glad that game is changing and people have become so open-minded."

This episode of What Women Want would be aired today, on January 16, 2019. Karisma has always spoken reverently of Kareena. In an earlier interview with the PTI, Karisma had said, "She is my sister and we are very close. I think she is more of a friend to me than just a family member. We share a great bond and she is a blessing in my life."
Karisma and Kareena have both been leading actress of Bollywood. Sharing how rare it is for two sisters to have a successful career in the same industry, Karisma had said, "I think there has never been precedence where two sisters in Bollywood have been successful working simultaneously as heroines in same decade or same generation. I think we have been lucky and fortunate to have had great careers."
Kareena got married to Saif Ali Khan in the year 2012. Since then, she has been very choosy with her films. Is Karisma worried that her sister is doing lesser number of films post-marriage? Lolo replied, "She is married and wants to pick and choose the work she is doing. It is completely her choice. She has been that kind of person. I think, right from her first film, she has done whatever she has wanted to do in her life, and I think that is the kind of person she is and we respect that."
Talking to a media portal about her own sabbatical, Karisma had once shared that even today her fans love her so much. She was quoted as saying, "In a way, I strike a balance with masses and classes. I also have that connection with the audience and I am thankful to my fans that they want to see me. Commercials don’t consume a lot of time. I just did a book last year. I did a radio show. So, I like doing different things and that keeps me busy and active apart from parenting."
