Birthday Special: Karisma Kapoor’s top roles proving she’s Heroine No 1 of 90s


New Delhi, June 25: Bollywood Actress Karisma Kapoor is celebrating her 43rd birthday today, is a true definition of a timeless beauty.

Karisma Kapoor had a tough beginning in the industry. Even though she stepped into movies with a powerful surname and veterans like Raj Kapoor, Prithviraj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor giving her backing, she wasn’t taken seriously even after doing half a dozen films, until she struck gold with Anari.

From Raja Babu to Fiza, Karisma nailed every performance and became the sure shot hit formula for filmmakers over time. And needless to say, her on-screen pairing with Govinda is to be remembered for decades. As Karisma turns 43 today, here’s a look at some of her remarkable performances and how she became more than just a name for her fans.

Anari: ‘Phoolon sa chehra tera’, we are sure you remember this song shot on Karisma and South actor Venkatesh. This was one formative film in the career of Karisma, which eventually drew attention towards this bubbly girl who had the intensity to carry complexities of a woman’s love and the strength of her mind.


Raja Babu: It is from this film that the filmmakers got a hit jodi in Govinda-Karisma. If Kajol and Shah Rukh Khan became our favourite in the 2000s, it was this duo – Karisma and Govinda which ruled the box office before late 90s kicked in. This was completely a Govinda film which owes its box office success to his comic timing and effervescent acting skills that made this film iconic but as a co-actor, Karisma was equally strong and supportive.

Andaz Apna Apna: A complete innocent character of Karisma had instantly made a connect with people’s hearts. How she expresses love, that blinking of eyes to emote fondness and of course the song – “Yeh Raat Aur Yeh Doori”, everything about her character in this film was as iconic as this cult film.  Apart from Karisma, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan’s camaraderie was another take away from this film.


Raja Hindustani: A love story which was beyond class and society, Karisma as a sacrificing and passionate lover, an obedient daughter and a wife, became an instant favourite of all. Her song ‘Pucho zara pucho’ is still fresh in our memories.

Dil Toh Pagal Hai: .Dil Toh Pagal Hai was one of the film’s which made Karisma stand out despite the film being a multi-starrer. Her love for Shah Rukh’s character was quite relatable for all those who were caught in one-sided love with their best friends and expected only a little reciprocation from them. Her character of Nisha could not have been done better by anyone else. And her epic dance moves in all the songs still rulling on our hearts.

Fiza: This was the first time when she was not a lover or a wife but a doting sibling who is constantly searching for her brother Hrithik Roshan. It is just amazing how the actor had held the entire act together even though Hrithik was just rising as the new face, still trying to gain popularity among his fans. Karisma was truly the anchor of this film.


Well, we cannot thank the actor enough for making film lovers so content and happy with her performances. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that she lived up to the expectation of an actor coming from the Kapoor khaandaan and paved an easy way for her sister Kareena.

Currently, the actress is holidaying in Europe with her rumoured boyfriend Sandeep Toshniwal. She is enjoying her time in the French Riviera, driving, sailing and shopping. Karisma and Sandeep have been in a relationship for quite sometimenow and the rumour mills are abuzz that the actress may walk the aisle soon with her steady partner.

Well, Karisma has been away from silver screen for a long time. Now, her fans are eagerly waiting for her strong comeback.
