									I think there’s work for everyone, even for
Mothers: Karishma Kapoor
Karishma Kapoor, the first Kapoor girl to step into glamour world is back on silver screen with the
3D film Dangerous Ishq almost after a decade. At 37, she is one of the hottest moms in B-Town. She
still looks stunning and is in magnificent shape. She has maintained a youthful charm and the glow
on her face makes her look decades younger than her age. She revealed the secret behind her
perfect body, “I had put on 25 kilos during my pregnancy, sach bahut moti hoo gayi thi mai. (laughs)I
run after my children and that is responsible for my body shape.”

“Every women gains an inadequate amount of weight during pregnancy. So you should eat healthy
and don’t deprive yourself. If you enjoy your pregnancy then losing the weight will be equally easy.
Pregnancy is an amazing experience.”

She finds herself extremely comfy wearing the hat of a mother, twofold over. Her first daughter
Samaira is now six and Kiaan(her baby boy) is growing fast and she confessed it’s easier to be a
mother the second time around. “Frankly speaking, I was very fearful when I was pregnant for the
first time. I am restricted and very picky about things which made me worry even more. But it was
much easier when I was pregnant with Kiaan. Being a mother is one of the most rewarding jobs on
earth and also one of the most challenging. Motherhood is a process, it’s a learning experience and
you learn every day because you want to be a good and caring mother. I memorize during Samaira’s
time I would frequently be sleep-deprived. I get up in the night to check if my she was all right, but
during Kiaan’s time I was like it's ok and I was much more hassle-free. Since you have been there and
done that you feel it is easy, really. I believe nothing can prepare you fully for motherhood. I took
advice from my mom and even read books on motherhood, but when you hold your baby in your
arms it’s a totally different sensation. Nothing can prepare a woman for motherhood.”

She recently announced her tie-up with online baby products, “I want to share this with every young
mother. I really believe in this product has a vision of giving babies the right start in life,” said
Karishma on the website.

These days Bollywood is waking up to the presence of mommies with former times silver-screen
sexy babes like Sridevi , Madhuri Dixit-Nene, and Karisma making a comeback. “Bollywood is aping
the Hollywood. Now it doesn’t matter you are mother or not. We all actors at the end of the day. I
think there’s work for everyone, even for Mothers, as long as you work hard and if you are a good
artist. Look at Hollywood actors like Kate Winslet and Julia Roberts, they are working mothers.
Angelina Jolie is a mother of 5 kids and still very much in demand. Now Bollywood is opening, we
should welcome this change. It’s really good mothers are getting good offers and characters to show
their talent.”

Lolo is all set to make comeback with ‘Dangerous Ishq’ and remake of 'Satte Pe Satta' is also in her
kitty. Sanjay Dutt will be playing the role of Amitabh Bachchan. Vidya Balan, Aishwarya Rai
Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit were approached for the role essayed by Hema in the yesteryear hit, finally
Karishma grabbed the opportunity to step in Hema Malini's shoes.

Talking about the character in 'Dangerous Ishq', excited actress said, “I am extremely happy to be
part of such wonderful project. My character is a step above what I had previously done as an actor.
It’s a 3-D film; it’s like ‘sone pe suhaaga’. I cannot reveal much about the details about my character,
what I can say is that it has different shades. I you have to wait and watch (smiles). I had an amazing
experience shooting the film. I will soon start shooting for another film which is remake of ‘Satte Pe
