It’s the reel deal for Karisma

July 27, 2009

I remember Karisma Kapoor, wide -eyed and beautiful in the wedding scene from “Raja Hindustani” many years ago.

And then I remember her from a picture taken at her own wedding, looking equally elegant and glowing.

There should be a difference between the two occasions right? Well, it turns out there isn’t much of a difference, as Kapoor’s sister Kareena revealed on Monday.

“I remembered Karisma telling me on her wedding, as she was getting ready, that she felt like she was getting ready for a shot. She said she had taken ‘pheras’ with so many heroes that she didn’t feel like this was any different,” Kareena told reporters.

I thought that was amazing. Imagine going through a reel wedding/death/break-up so many times that the real thing seems fake?
