And while her professional journey has been nothing less than a big blockbuster film, her personal life had weathered the storm. She didn't have the bed of roses when it came to her married life, and after 13 years of a troubled marriage, she had finally got the divorce in the year 2016. But the pain in her personal life never showed on her face, in fact, she became an inspiration for many single mothers, who chose happiness.

Karisma comes from a powerful family of the Kapoors, and her career in the '90s gained her a huge fan following. In an interview, she had talked about her Bollywood journey, and had stated, "I believe that my family has been the most formidable film dynasty that the Indian cinema has seen. My journey of carving a niche for myself in this industry hasn’t been the easiest. While the long-standing legacy of my family did inspire me to be a part of this industry, I’ve had to work very hard for that recognition. With generations behind you, it does take a whole lot of skill and talent to be the best version of yourself. I feel fortunate enough to be part of some of the best films."

She had further added, "It was such an honour to work so closely with the finest talent in our country. I have never really used any strategy; I have always relied on my own instinct. All of the opportunities that came my way, of working with such wonderful filmmakers, were rather organic. I fell in love with their stories and I am so glad that I got to be a part of them."
Karisma, who is a beautiful mother of two kids, had also talked about age in Bollywood, and had shared, "I don’t regard age as a parameter for one’s success. There has been a shift in the mindset of the audiences as well. Age to me has and always will be a non-issue. Today, there are some great roles out there for everybody and gone are the days when an actor’s success was equated to how old he or she was."
For those who don't know, Karisma is all set to return to the acting field with a web series, Mentalhood which is a story about a mother of three kids. In an interview with the IANS, she had talked about her comeback, and had said, "Out of choice I wanted to be with my family and children. After a while when I heard this script it was so interesting, the script was about today’s mother and it was so strong. Women of all ages and all those who are mothers will identify with my characters. It is also something which I am going through right now. Young parents and older parents will identify with Mentalhood. My character is today’s mom and as a human, she will do the right thing and is real. I am thoroughly enjoying shooting with all my lovely co-actors."
In the same interview, she had talked about her kids, who are equally excited to see their mom back in action. Karisma had added, "They are excited that I am working again. I started working at a very young age. Everyone in my family has been an actor and contributed to this industry. I have grown up with a really strong work ethic, and I think that’s hopefully gone down to my children as well."
