I did women-centric films 10 years back: Karisma

Mumbai, April 5 (IANS) While many are hailing Vidya Balan for ushering in the trend of women-centric films, actress Karisma Kapoor reminds everyone that she has already been there and done that.

"Honestly, I think it's (women-centric films) quite amazing. But I would also like to remind you that I used to do that 10 years ago as well - 'Biwi No.1', 'Fiza', 'Zubeidaa' and 'Shakti'," the 37-year-old told reporters Wednesday here while launching the first look of her film "Dangerous Ishq", which she is doing after nine years.

"So I genuinely feel that a good actor and a good script will always get the audiences in. I don't think it's now or then, if you are a good actor, those kinds of scripts will come to you. It's great that it's still happening," she added.

Directed by Vikram Bhatt, "Dangerous Ishq", a 3D venture, has Karisma in the role of a supermodel who starts seeing past-life in a moment of danger. The film also stars model-actor Rajneesh Duggal. It hits theatres May 11.

At the function, Karisma let out a secret yet unknown to her fans.

"I have been in the industry for almost 20 years, but from my first movie till now, I cannot sit in the audience and see myself on the screen. I just can't do it. It's a secret that I am telling everyone today. I always stand at the back somewhere and gauge," said the 37-year-old.

Karisma took a sabbatical from movies after marrying Dehi-based businessman Sanjay Kapoor in 2003. She has two kids - daughter Samaira and son Kiian.
