Background and early life

Also consider: The Kapoors

Kapoor was born in Mumbai on June 25, 1974, to actors Randhir Kapoor and Babita (née Shivdasani). Kareena, her younger sister, is also a film actor. Raj Kapoor, an actor and filmmaker, was her paternal grandpa, and Hari Shivdasani, an actor, was her maternal grandfather. Prithviraj Kapoor was her paternal great-grandfather. Her uncles are actors Rishi and Rajiv Kapoor, while her aunts are actress Neetu Singh and entrepreneur Ritu Nanda. Among her first cousins are actors Ranbir Kapoor, Armaan and Aadar Jain, and Nikhil Nanda. Her grand-uncles are actors Shammi and Shashi Kapoor, and her mother's first cousin was the late actress Sadhana.

Kapoor is affectionately known as "Lolo" at home. According to Kapoor, the name Lolo was inspired by a stray mention to the Italian actress Gina Lollobrigida made by her mother. Her paternal and maternal grandparents were both from Peshawar, Lyallpur, and Karachi, respectively, and came to Bombay for their cinema careers before to India's partition. On her father's side, Kapoor is of Punjabi Hindu heritage, while on her mother's side, she is of Sindhi Hindu and British descent.

Kapoor was influenced by the work of actresses Sridevi and Madhuri Dixit, and has wanted to be an actor since he was a child. Kapoor was frequently seen at award ceremonies and film shoots as a child, accompanied by her parents. Despite her familial background, her father was opposed to women working in films because he considered it interfered with women's traditional maternal roles and responsibility in the family. This caused a schism between her parents, who divorced in 1988. She and her sister Kareena were reared by their mother, who worked multiple jobs to support them till she made her acting debut. After living apart for several years, the couple reconnected in 2007. Kapoor attended Cathedral and John Connon Schools, as well as Sophia College for a short months. Kapoor later stated that she dropped out of college to pursue acting for economical reasons.

Early roles and debut (1991-1996)

At the age of 16, Kapoor made her acting debut in the romance drama Prem Qaidi, opposite rookie Harish Kumar. The film was a minor box office success and earned mixed reviews from critics, as did Kapoor's performance, which was described as "mechanical" by Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama. Kapoor's first five films, Police Officer, Jaagruti, Nishchaiy, Sapne Sajan Ke, and Deedar, all bombed at the box office the following year. Her first two collaborations with Salman Khan were Jaagruti and Nishchaiy, while Deedar was her first with Akshay Kumar. She then appeared in the action movie Jigar (1992) and the romance drama Anari (1993), both of which became box office hits and were among the highest-grossing films of their respective years. Jigar was Kapoor's first collaboration with Ajay Devgn, whereas Anari cast her as Rajnandini, a princess who falls in love with her impoverished servant (played by Daggubati Venkatesh).

Muqabla (the first of her numerous collaborations with Govinda), Sangraam, Shaktiman, and Dhanwaan were Kapoor's next four films in 1993. With the exception of Muqabla, none of these films did well in either the critical or commercial sense. In 1994, Kapoor had nine film releases, four of which were critical and commercial flops: Prem Shakti, Dulaara, Andaz, and Aatish. Her first breakthrough that year was David Dhawan's comedy film Raja Babu, in which she played Madhubala, an educated arrogant girl who calls off her engagement after learning of her fiancée's illiteracy. Kapoor then acted in Rajkumar Santoshi's famous comedy film Andaz Apna Apna with Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, and Raveena Tandon as the blind wife of Govinda's character in the successful action movie Khuddar. Raveena Bajaj, the daughter of a London-based business magnate, travels to India in pursuit of true love and falls in love with Salman Khan's character. Despite underperforming at the box office, the picture has garnered a sizable cult following in the years after its release.

The action drama Suhaag (together with Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, and Nagma) and the comedy-drama Gopi Kishan (along with Suniel Shetty and Shilpa Shirodkar) were both critically and economically successful for Kapoor. She played a college student and Devgn's love interest in the former, and a police commissioner's daughter who falls in love with a criminal in the latter. After acting in the box office disappointments Jawab and Maidan-E-Jung, Kapoor acted in David Dhawan's hit comedy film Coolie No. 1 in 1995 as Malti, an affluent girl who marries a lowly coolie (played by Govinda). The film received favourable reviews and was a commercial success in India, collecting 911 million rupees (US$11 million). She subsequently stated about her early career difficulties, "When I first entered the industry, things were made difficult for me." I'm not claiming to have been singled out. Every famous child, in my opinion, must go through this. Everyone was really cruel to me. Other newbies were praised for every small accomplishment, but I received no recognition. 'Okay, she's done well, but what's the big deal about her?' I was often told. Nobody gave me credit for completing my work relatively effectively as a 17-year-old.

Breakthrough and ascension to fame (1996-1999)

Kapoor starred in ten films in 1996. Five of them were commercially unsuccessful: Papi Gudia, Megha, Bal Bramhachari, Sapoot, and Rakshak. Her next film was David Dhawan's romantic comedy Saajan Chale Sasural, in which she co-starred with Govinda and Tabu. The film Saajan Chale Sasural was a commercial success. In S. Deepak's box office success Krishna, Kapoor was partnered opposite Suneil Shetty for her fifth release. She appeared in Raj Kanwar's love drama Jeet starring Sunny Deol, Salman Khan, and Tabu. She portrayed Kajal, a woman who falls in love with a criminal but marries another. Jeet was a "super-hit" at the box office, finishing as the second highest-grossing picture of the year. Both the film and Kapoor's performance received favourable reviews from critics. That same year, Kapoor co-starred with Aamir Khan in Dharmesh Darshan's love romance Raja Hindustani. The film became the year's highest-grossing film, and she received her first Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her portrayal in it; the film's popularity established Kapoor as a prominent actress of Hindi cinema, and marked a crucial turning point in her career. Raja Hindustani was not just the largest economic hit of 1996, but also one of India's most successful films of all time, grossing $765 million (US$9.6 million) globally. Suneel Darshan's action picture Ajay, starring Sunny Deol, was Kapoor's penultimate release in 1996. The film was a commercial success as well.

In 1997, Kapoor re-teamed with David Dhawan for two films: the comedy Judwaa (with Salman Khan and Rambha) and the romantic comedy Hero No. 1 (against Govinda). The former's theme was similar to that of Gopi Kishan in that it relates the narrative of twin brothers who are separated at infancy and reunite in their youth. Khan's love interests were played by Kapoor and Rambha. It was a middling commercial and critical success. In Hero No. 1, she portrayed Meena Nath, a young woman who falls in love with Govinda's character while on a foreign vacation, but finds it difficult to persuade her stern grandfather (Paresh Rawal) of their connection. The film was a critical and economic success, and Kapoor received plaudits for her performance. She was later nominated for a Zed Cine Award for Best Actress for her participation in the film. She went on to star in Mehul Kumar's dramas Lahu Ke Do Rang and Mrityudata, both of which were critical and commercial flops. Yash Chopra's musical romance drama Dil To Pagal Hai was Kapoor's fifth and last release of 1997. The film, which also stars Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit, and Akshay Kumar, chronicles the love lives of the cast and staff of a musical dance ensemble. Kapoor portrayed Nisha, a vivacious dancer who secretly loves her best friend (played by Khan), but she marries him to the girl he loves (played by Dixit). Initially hesitant to take on the role, Chopra hired Kapoor (after being pleased by her work in Raja Hindustani) after several leading actresses of the period declined. Dil To Pagal Hai became a box office success, becoming the highest-grossing picture of the year. For her performance, Kapoor received both the National Film Award and the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Her tiny comeback in 1999 was successful, as she appeared in several of the year's most hit films. Kapoor appeared in four successful films. She then re-teamed with Dhawan and Salman Khan (together with Sushmita Sen) for the romantic comedy Biwi No.1, in which she played Pooja, a woman whose husband has an extramarital affair with a model. The film's critical and economic success won Kapoor significant acclaim for her performance. "Kapoor may not look like a mother of two children," said Planet Bollywood's Mohammad Ali Ikram, "but she continues to mature as an actress with each successive film." For her work in the film, Kapoor won a second Filmfare nomination for Best Actress. She was a success with comedy flicks, as another of David Dhawan's films, Haseena Maan Jaayegi, scored well at the box office. For the first time, Kapoor worked with Rajshri Productions on the family drama Hum Saath-Saath Hain: We Stand United. The film, which starred an ensemble cast (Mohnish Behl, Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, and Sonali Bendre), became one of the largest Hindi film blockbusters of all time, grossing $817 million (US$10 million) worldwide. Her final movie of the year, Jaanwar, starring opposite Akshay Kumar, was another box office blockbuster, earning her the year's most successful actress.

Additional acclaim and roles (2000-2002)

Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, a romantic comedy starring Salman Khan, was Kapoor's debut release in 2000. She portrayed Sapna, a girl who falls in love with Khan's character while on a foreign vacation, but finds it difficult to persuade her three uncles of their love. The picture was one of the year's top box office successes. "Karisma Kapoor and Salman Khan elicit more than their fair share of cat-calls in the film and make a delectable pair," Rediff's Aparajita Saha said. Both are in great shape: Karisma appears elegant and at ease, while Salman has mastered the lost-boy-muscle-man appearance." The romantic comedies Chal Mere Bhai (opposite Khan and Dutt) and Hum To Mohabbat Karega (with Bobby Deol) that followed failed to do well at the movie office.

That same year, Kapoor earned her second Filmfare Award for Best Actress for her performance as the title character in Khalid Mohammed's murder drama Fiza, which received critical praise. Her performance in the film was widely praised, with several critics praising her for displaying a wide emotional range and depth. "As the young girl who is sick of the suspense and disruption that her brother's disappearance has caused in her family's life, as the obstinate daughter who will not listen to her mother's plea to let her keep hoping for her son, as the determined sister who keeps on in her hunt for her brother despite all odds and then seeks to keep him on the right path, this is a new Karisma, and one that delivers a superlative performance," Mimmy Jain of The The film was a "semi-hit" at the box office, grossing $878 million (US$11 million) worldwide.

She received additional critical recognition in 2001 for her portrayal of a real-life actress in the biographical play Zubeidaa. Shyam Benegal directed the film, which was based on the story of ill-fated actress Zubeida Begum, who married a Sikh, Hanwant Singh. According to the Tribune, she "has surpassed herself as the passionate, defiant, willful, and troubled Zubeidaa, the truly modern woman." "I have been here so long, I have done everything," she revealed in an interview with Rediff. Everything from starring roles to supporting roles. How can I improve as a performer? If I continue to make commercial films, I will become stagnant, and I wanted to progress." She received the Best Actress (Critics) award and was nominated for Best Actress at the ceremony. The film, which starred Rekha and Manoj Bajpai, grossed over 239.552 million (US$3.0 million) worldwide. She then co-starred with Bobby Deol and Rahul Dev in Indra Kumar's Aashiq, which earned minimal love from critics but was a small success, generating over 260 million (US$3.3 million) domestically. Kapoor's next film was Suneel Darshan's social drama Ek Rishtaa: The Bond of Love. The film, which starred Amitabh Bachchan and Akshay Kumar, became one of the year's biggest hits.

Kapoor had three film releases in 2002, the first of which was the love drama Haan Maine Bhi Pyaar Kiya, in which she co-starred with Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan. She then co-starred with Nana Patekar in the woman-centric drama Shakti: The Power, as Nandini, a lady who wishes to flee her in-laws (who are involved in feudal gang fights) with her kid following her husband's death. The film was based on the life of author Betty Mahmoody and was a remake of the Telugu film Antahpuram (1998). Shakti: The Power was widely lauded, and Kapoor received rave reviews for her performance - Taran Adarsh wrote, "The power clearly belongs to Kapoor." Breathing fire and venom to reclaim her son from the clutches of a despot, the actress gives her everything to the role of a vulnerable mother and demonstrates her brilliant performance. This performance, in which she plays a wounded tigress, outperforms all others this year." Kapoor's performance in the film won her Best Actress nods at various award shows, including a fifth at Filmfare. Her final release that year was Indra Kumar's love drama Rishtey, in which she co-starred with Anil Kapoor and Shilpa Shetty. She played Komal, an affluent woman who falls in love with a poorer man and marries him against the desires of her father. Despite high expectations, Kapoor's three films that year flopped at the box office.

Recent work and growth (2003-present)

Her lone film that year, Baaz: A Bird in Danger, was released in 2003. The picture, however, did poorly at the box office. Later that year, she made her television debut in the Sahara One serial opera Karishma - The Miracles of Destiny, playing both a grandma and a granddaughter. The series concluded in 2004 after 260 episodes, and she took a break from full-time acting for several years.

Kapoor appeared in Mere Jeevan Saathi in 2006; the film was shot and completed in 2003 but was postponed for three years. Kapoor began judging season four of the dance show Nach Baliye in 2008, alongside actor Arjun Rampal and director-choreographer Farah Khan, and continued the following year with the comedy show Hans Baliye. She also appeared in the song "Deewangi Deewangi" from the 2007 movie Om Shanti Om, and she was a guest on the reality television show Wife Bina Life (2010) in 2008.

Kapoor made her acting debut in Vikram Bhatt's spooky film Dangerous Ishq, playing the protagonist. The film, which also stars Rajneesh Duggal, spans four centuries and depicts four different love stories set in different time eras. Kapoor portrayed four different personas, one from each century. Despite being a critical and commercial failure, the film received favourable reviews for Kapoor's performance. "Kapoor puts forth her best efforts, getting to deliver lines in various dialects," Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama said. She gets the dialects well, notably Urdu and Rajasthani, but she doesn't get much opportunity to show off her acting skills." In 2013, Kapoor appeared among several other actors in the title song of the anthology film Bombay Talkies, which was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Hindi film industry. Kapoor had a cameo appearance in the Aanand L. Rai-directed romance comedy Zero in 2019. Kapoor has completed production on the ALTBalaji web series Mentalhood as of March 2020.

Homi Adajania's Murder Mubarak will be Kapoor's first film in six years.

Private life

From 1992 to 1995, Kapoor was in a romance with her Jigar co-star Ajay Devgn. She married Abhishek Bachchan in 2002, however the marriage was called off after only a few months. This ended their short-lived relationship, with no explanation given.

She married industrialist Sunjay Kapur, the CEO of Sixt India, in a high-profile Sikh wedding ceremony on September 29, 2003, at her family home, Krishna Raj Bungalow, in Mumbai. The pair has two children: a daughter born in 2005 and a son born in 2010. The couple filed for divorce by mutual consent in 2014. The couple filed motions to revoke their consent in November 2015. The divorce of the couple was formalised in 2016.

It was a "conscious decision" for Kapoor to take a vacation from her acting profession for her children and family, she said. "It (acting) is ingrained in you," she added. It's something that will never go away. I was hoping expecting something extremely fascinating to happen. I didn't do any films since I didn't want to because my children were so young. I desired to spend time at home with my family and children."

Work done away from the camera

Salman Khan's humanitarian trust, Being Human Foundation, is supported by Kapoor. In 2005, Kapoor and other Bollywood stars took part in the HELP! Telethon Concert, which raised funds for the victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake. In 2010, Kapoor, Salman Khan, and several other Bollywood actresses participated in the HDIL India Couture Week for a charitable cause.

Kapoor has also endorsed numerous brands, including Kellogg's, Crescent Lawn, Admix Retail, Danone, and Garnier Colour. She walked the runway for Manish Malhotra, Arpita Mehta, and Vikram Phadnis, among others.

Since the 1990s, Kapoor has been a member of various stage shows and globe tours. The Heartthrobs: Live in Concert tour included appearances by Arjun Rampal, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor, and Aftab Shivdasani. In 2016, Kapoor appeared as a special guest at the Hiru Golden Film Awards in Sri Lanka, alongside Neil Nitin Mukesh, Suniel Shetty (Sunil Shetty), Jackie Shroff, Sridevi, and Madhuri Dixit.

Kapoor owns a stake in the children's product company Babyoye.com, an ecommerce venture that sells infant and mother care products. She published "My Yummy Mummy Guide: From Getting Pregnant to Losing All the Weight and Beyond" in 2013, a motherhood handbook filled with post-pregnancy advice for ladies.

Public perception and reception

In the media, Kapoor is regarded as one of Bollywood's most popular actresses. Deven Sharma of Filmfare called Kapoor "a force to reckon with commercially," noting that "Karisma Kapoor was a strong contender to both Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi's domination of the '90s." The Tribune described her as "brimming with exuberance and energy." Her beauty and performances have established her as a fashion icon. According to Nikita Sawant of Femina, Kapoor represents the statement, "Some people get better with age." The Times of India described her as "inimitable" because of her corpus of work and the soul she gave to movies in the 1990s.

She was named one of the "Top Bollywood Actresses" by India Today. Glamour Magazine named her the "Sexiest Actress Alive" in 2022 and 2023. Kapoor appeared on Box Office India's list of three "Top Actresses" for five years in a row, and was placed top three times, in 1996, 1997, and 1999. She was ranked eighth on its "All Time Top Actresses" list. She was placed fourth on The Times of India's "50 Beautiful Faces" list in 2013.

Kareena Kapoor, Lolo's sister, acknowledges, "Working with Lolo will be a dream come true." She was and always will be my favourite actress." She got "choosy about her roles" after a string of commercial flicks, according to Rediff.com. She was dubbed "The OG Bollywood Queen" by NDTV. According to Filmfare, she is one of the "most celebrated stars" in the Hindi cinema business. According to the Hindu, she has "a radiant look and an enviable figure." Kapoor has received critical acclaim for her roles in Raja Hindustani, Dil To Pagal Hai, Biwi No.1, Fiza, Zubeidaa, and Shakti: The Power. According to Eastern Eye, Kapoor has "an array of successful films" in his filmography.

According to Rediff.com, Kapoor has done everything from "raunchy numbers" to "serious roles." It attributed her "established actress" status to her serious roles. "I have never really used any strategy," Kapoor remarked in an interview. I go with my gut instinct. I do whatever I feel compelled to do. In my career, I have never planned or manipulated anything. Whatever transpired happened in a natural way. I really felt drawn to these stories and wanted to be a part of them."

Kapoor has been on Forbes India's "Celebrity 100," a ranking based on the wealth and popularity of India's superstars, peaking at 77th in 2012, with an estimated yearly earning of 110.55 million (US$1.4 million). Her eight films have grossed more than 1 billion (US$13 million) as of 2016.


Kapoor won a National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), as well as four Filmfare Awards for Best Actress for Raja Hindustani (1996) and Fiza (2000), Best Supporting Actress for Dil To Pagal Hai (1997), and Best Actress (Critics) for Zubeidaa (2001).

Kapoor won her first Best Actress award in 1996 for Raja Hindustani, her biggest financial success, and went on to win the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress and the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the musical love drama Dil To Pagal Hai (1997).
