Time and again, Karisma Kapoor has shared how awed is she, of sister, Kareena Kapoor Khan. Speaking about the same, she had stated in an interview with PTI, “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.”
In a 2018 interview with Filmfare, Karisma Kapoor had shared some unknown facts about her sister, Kareena Kapoor Khan. She had shared, “Apart from being a carefree person, I would say that she is a very emotional person. It is because of family, upbringing -- my dad, my mom. The Kapoors and the Shivdasanis, we have been extremely close and family is most important. We say careers, friends, work everything is important, but family is THE most important. That’s how we have that bond of sisters and we are a very strong women-centric home. I am fortunate to have that bond (with Kareena).”
Kareena Kapoor Khan, in a 2016 interview with HT shared that inspite of being much younger to Lolo (Karisma’s nickname), she had often bullied her! The Takht actress was heard as saying, “She’s my older sister, but I think I kind of bully her sometimes. I fire her, and I also give her advice. But eventually, she’s the person I have grown up aspiring to be. Even the way she conducted herself back in the ’90s — she was a very private actor — was inspiring.” She had further added, “Her [Karisma’s] simplicity is her beauty and charm. That’s why, all her life, everyone around her has bullied her. But everyone who is a part of my life knows that if Lolo has said something, then it’s like gospel truth for me. And what I admire the most is the dignity with which she has conducted her life, her career, and single-handedly brought up her children, despite a lot of media stress, in terms of her marriage.” (Also Read: Janhvi Kapoor Reveals One Thing She Fights About With Khushi Kapoor, Every Sister Can Relate With It)
