Born June 25, 1974, Karisma Kapoor is an Indian film actress. She is widely renowned for being one of the most popular Hindi film actresses of the 1990s and early 2000s. Born and raised in Mumbai, she is a member of the Kapoor Family, where her parents and other relatives are all involved in the Bollywood film industry. Despite her family background, her father disliked women entering films, and subsequently separated from her mother. Then at the age of seventeen, Kapoor left her studies in order to pursue a film career for financial support. Her acting debut came in 1991 with the film Prem Qaidi. Upon release, this film was a moderate box office success and received mixed reviews from critics. The following year, Kapoors first five releases, Police Officer, Jaagruti, Nishchaiy, Sapne Sajan Ke and Deedar, flopped at the box office. She then starred in the action drama Jigar followed by the romantic drama Anari in 1993, both of which emerged as box office hits and among the highest-grossing films of their respective years. Throughout her career, Kapoor had several critical and commercial failures however, soon the tables turned and her films slowly became more and more successful such as the film Malti which grossed 911 million Rupees. Despite her struggles, Kapoor was still able to achieve a number of feats and awards. Some of which include a National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress, Filmfare Awards for Best Actress and Best Actress Critics.
