intention of making a mark as an actress was clear, when, despite a
strong opposition from the paternal side of her family, she debuted
in a Hindi films as the female lead at the tender age of sixteen. The
family in question was Indian film industry's legendary Kapoor
family, and the lady to break a long-held family tradition was the
blue-eyed, fair-skinned Karisma (then Karishma) Kapoor. Born to Raj
Kapoor's elder son, actor Randhir Kapoor and yesteryears' gorgeous
leading lady, Babita, Karisma is the fourth generation of the revered
and established filmy clan. What's worth admiring is that Karisma,
despite such a huge filmy background, chose to start off modestly
with a modest-budget, no-frills Prem
journey thereon has been an eclectic one for Karisma. It's undeniable
that she did manage to bring in a freshness to the then-stagnating
Hindi actresses' slot. Yet, given her raw appeal and 'different'
(albeit pretty) look and acting, she did have her fair share of
critics. Once she paired up with Govinda and David Dhawan to make
hits like Raja
Babu, Coolie No. 1 and
the likes, she didn't look back. However, blame
it on the films she chose to be in or the general trend of the film
industry that Lolo, as Karisma is fondly called, did get typecast as
a glamour doll. And then, in 1996, she did Raja
opposite Aamir Khan. The movie took the box-office by storm. With it,
she proved that acting indeed ran in her blood! The film also won her
her first Filmfare award for the Best Actress. This success streak
continued for her with films like Dil
Toh Pagal Hai,
which won her the National Award for Best Supporting Actress, Biwi
No. 1, Haseena
Maan Jayegi, and
Hum Saath Saath
portrayal of a distressed sister in Fiza,
and of a a
glamorous girl who falls for a crown prince that changes the course
of life forever, won her a pat on the back from everyone!
to largely remain tight-lipped about her personal life, even after a
very public engagement and consequent break-up with the Bachchan
scion Abhishek Bachchan, Karisma got married to Delhi-based
businessman and her childhood friend Sanjay Kapur in the year 2003.
The grand wedding made national headlines, and the couple now has two
cherubic children, girl Samaira and baby boy Kiaan. However,
their marital life has often been in the news for all the wrong
reasons, and they have been said to heading divorce/ separation.
and stylish, Karisma turns 38 on 25th
June. She has been contemplating a comeback for quite a while now,
and also recently appeared in the movie Dangerous
Ganesha, with the help of Vedic astrology, reads her Surya Kundali
and makes some interesting observations about her life and future.
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Kapoor's Surya Kundali
Ganesha observes that
Karisma is born with Venus Ketu conjunction in Taurus. Venus in
Taurus makes her a very good actress. It has also bestowed her with
a resplendent beauty.
Mars in Cancer indicates
that she may not be able to take very bold decisions in her life,
unless circumstances are very forceful and lead her to a juncture
wherein she has no other option but to take a bold step.
Saturn, Sun and retrograde
Mercury in Gemini make her conscious of her public image, owing to
which she may remain very careful, while giving an interview or
while issuing a public statement.
During the year ahead, she
will be under the influence of Rahu Ketu half return. Ketu's transit
over Venus will play an important role in her life, and may even
bring a marked turning point.
Transiting Saturn's Square
with Natal Mars will also remain very vital for her.
Jupiter's transit through
Taurus, and later through Gemini will bring some positive changes
Ganesha foresees Karisma
starting something new, which may be creative, but not necessarily
related to the film industry during the year ahead. She may get into
something related to women like a jewellery line or fashion
designing or the likes. This will happen while, Jupiter transits
over her Natal Venus.
At the same time, she may
have to struggle at her film career that she has been trying to
revive. Ganesha does foresee luck favouring her post December 2012
though. However till then, Ganesha doesn't expect a major hit or
blockbuster from her.
Her personal life may
remain under dark clouds for most part of the year, and the time
till December 2012 is very important for her personal life. The
couple may also finally decide to part their ways. There may be
legal issues too, feels Ganesha.
Karisma may be doing away
with some of her Karmic bonds, and shall also be developing new
relations during the year ahead.
Emotional disturbances and
stress may impact her health adversely. She needs to take a good
care of herself.
conclusion, it can be surmised that the year ahead is good only post
December 2012 for Karisma's film career, while turbulence may be
expected at personal front.
Ganesha bless Karisma Kapoor with a happy and successful life and
