On the eve of International Women’s Day, Karisma Kapoor was conferred with an award that she dedicated to late actress Sridevi. The Biwi No. 1 actress was present at the event at the behest of her old friend and eye specialist Dr Himanshu Mehta.
“I was shooting for Shakti in Rajasthan. There was so much sand that it went to my eyes. I had to rush back to Mumbai for treatment and Dr Mehta asked me what I am doing to myself. My eyes were swollen because of the sand and use of glycerine. I was treated for two months and Dr Mehta saw the hard work we put in. He realised that it is not as glamorous as it seems,” reminisces the actress.
The Zubeidaa actress dedicated her award to the late actress with whom she shares the screen space in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Zero. “I would like to dedicate this award to Sridevi. I remember that she was the producer of Shakti with Boney. She would be on the sets and hence I want to dedicate this award in her memory,” says Karisma.
So will the fans get to see her again on the big screen? “I keep myself busy. I do a lot of endorsements and events. I do not know if I will do a film now, but keep waiting,” she signs off.
