When a little Kareena would hide and watch her sister Karisma cry
Any star kid’s debut in Bollywood is automatically burdened with a lot of expectations. He or she is expected to leave a lasting impression, just like their parents did during their stint in the industry. But, certainly the star kids have their own share of struggles. In fact, the struggle they have to go through is somewhere a little bit more than it is for the outsiders because of the constant comparison to their parents. One such example among these star kids is that of actress Karisma Kapoor. Much before Karisma’s potential as a serious and intense performer was recognised, the actress had to struggle a lot in her career. Recently, we stumbled upon an old interview of Karisma’s sister and actress Kareena Kapoor Khan where she opened up on how as a child she used to watch her sister Karisma cry in the nights, during latter’s struggling days. Well, given that she belonged to the first family of Bollywood, the Kapoors, who could have imagined Karisma going through so much before achieving her much deserved stardom.
It was on Simi Garewal’s show ‘Rendezvous with Simi Garewal’, when during their conversation the host asked Kareena that why has Lolo (Karisma) always maintained that she has struggled a lot, despite having the tag of RK (Raj Kapoor’s family) behind her. To which, Kareena replied saying, “I think because there was never really anyone who supported her in this decision. My grandfather passed away. There was no one who really supported her and thought she would be able to make it. No one thought that a light-eyed Kapoor girl coming from such a family would ever be an actress. I think the only one who supported her and who inspired her to do it was my mother (Babita Kapoor). I have literally seen the two of them struggle from pillar to post.” (Also Read:When Karisma rejected ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’, but destiny had other plans)
On hearing the word ‘struggle’ from Kareena once again, Simi interrupted, for she could not understand the struggle that Bebo was talking about, given the influence of her family. Simi could not fathom the reason behind the struggle. To which, Kareena replied by saying, “I have seen my sister sit up for nights together with my mother and cry saying that the people are putting her down and she would never make it. And I would hide behind and watch because they would never want me to see the pain that they were going through. I’ve seen too much. As a child I’ve seen a lot with my mother, with my sister, I have lived their lives with them you know, I have gone through their traumas to date. I think I’ve seen my sister cry for nights together to go to sleep and she was struggling and that hurts me. Anything that hurts my loved ones hurts me.”
Further, she even went on to share that it was her mother and sister’s struggle that made her so strong, making her feel that she can take up anything and can take on anyone in the world.
