I can now work at my own pace: Karisma Kapoor
New Delhi: Actress Karisma Kapoor seems content with her life and says she is enjoying this phase of her life -- professionally at least. Away from the rat race, she is happy that she can pick and choose her projects when she wants.
"I think it is a great situation to be in. I am away from the rat race, from major pressures. I can work at my own pace and do what I like doing. So it`s a great thing to be," Karisma told IANS.
The 38-year-old started her Bollywood career in 1991 with ‘Prem Qaidi’ and went on to do successful movies like ‘Anari’, ‘Raja Babu’, ‘Raja Hindustani’ and ‘Dil To Pagal Hai’.
Karisma took a break when she married industrialist Sanjay Kapur in 2003 and is mother to two kids -- daughter Samaira, 7, and Kiaan, 2. She recently made a comeback with Vikram Bhatt`s suspense thriller movie ‘Dangerous Ishhq’ earlier this year.
It didn`t garner too much success, but that isn`t priority for her any longer.
"Success varies in so many ways. I think nothing is more important than my family and my kids. And people ask me that `You kept away from limelight. Did you love that?` I loved that.
"I am a strong and professional person. So I think my career was important, but I don`t think fame and success is everything in the world," she said.
Karisma is caught amid a lot of speculation about her personal life. Her divorce is said to be on the verge of finalisation, and she wants to keep her private life, private.
Asked what thrills her these days, the doting mother said: "I think running behind my kids. That gives me a thrill and taking each day as it comes. I am trying to do my best in whatever I do."
Karisma acknowledges that Bollywood is becoming bolder by the day, but as a mother, she feels it is not harmful for young minds and believes it is the parents` responsibility to monitor the content accessible to their children.
"What is important for parents is to just monitor what kinds of things are children watching through cinema, television or computer. I think that should be censored and monitored," she said.
