Mumbai: One would have expected Karisma Kapoor to make her comeback with established stars. But the case is different with `Dangerous Ishq`. She says it`s because the movie required actors with no image.
"These young actors have been cast in `Dangerous Ishq` because we required actors with no image. That`s why they have been cast... and they have been very appropriately cast in the film," said Karisma.
`Dangerous Ishq` features model-actor Rajniesh Duggal opposite Karisma. It also features model-actor Ruslaan Mumtaz, who made his debut with the film "Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar", and Arya Babbar.
Karisma, 37, who is appearing on the big screen after a gap of five years, says the audience, her family and friends led to her returning to films.
"I have a life beyond movies and I have done the film because the audience, media, family and friends, everyone told me to do a film. I am just excited, more than anything, that the audience will get to see me again on the big screen," said Karisma, who took a sabbatical from work post-marriage to Delhi-based businessman Sanjay Kapur in 2003.
Directed by Vikram Bhatt, `Dangerous Ishq` has been shot in 3D and hits theatres Friday. In the movie, Karisma plays a supermodel, who undergoes past-life regression.
