Bollywood Actress Karisma Kapoor made her Bollywood debut with the 1991 film Prem Qaidi. Millions of people went crazy after seeing the charisma with thick eyebrows, lake-like eyes, although the film could not leave a deep impression at the box office. After appearing in many average films, Karisma got David Dhawan’s film Saajan Chale Sasural. Karishma’s acting got a different identity from this film.

In those days, Karisma Kapoor’s father Randhir Kapoor, who was at the top, wanted her to get married to Akshaye Khanna, son of his close friend Vinod Khanna. According to the news of Film Beat, Randhir had also taken this relationship to Vinod’s house, but Karishma’s mother Babita refused this marriage.
