Her mother, veteran actress Babita Kapoor, had also urged her to pursue the part. This weekend, Karisma Kapoor will appear as a special guest on the reality show Indian Idol 12. The top six candidates will perform Karisma’s songs on the next show.

Karisma remarked on the broadcast regarding Dil To Pagal Hai. She said, “Every single heroine declined the film. The role was then offered to me…it was a dance picture, and they said, ‘No way can we dance beside Madhuri Dixit ji!’ I initially declined since it was a dance film starring Madhuri Dit and a competitive dance. ‘This isn’t going to happen,’ I said. The script was eventually told to me by Yash ji and Adi (Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra). ‘You must accept the challenge,’ my mother said. if you are a Madhuri Dixit fan, you must do it. You put in the effort and you will succeed.”
According to the Indian Express, Karishma Kapoor also said that Suniel Shetty is the greatest prankster she has ever worked with.
