The yummy mummy of two, Karisma features in the Jan 2011 edition of Harper’s Bazaar shot by photographer Suresh Natarajan at the Taj Falaknuma Palace. Love the Chanel on her but the big hair that is is very reminiscent of Twinkle feels too dated and Dynasty-esque.
Catch snippets of her interview and more pics (in Dior and Bottega Veneta) inside courtesy Harper’s.
: Dressed comfortably in tracks and a T-shirt, she curls up on the sofa. “Frankly I’m the biggest foodie in the world,
” she exclaims laughingly. “People are shocked at how much I eat.
” The laugh vanishes when I broach the subject of her marriage, but she’s still as polite when she says, “I wouldn’t like to answer any personal questions. You can just write that.
” The next day the official statement appears: “The couple is not discussing a divorce at all. In order to be with his family, Sunjay Kapur spends every weekend with them in Mumbai.
” He is not the only one travelling. Though daughter Samaira, five, goes to school in Mumbai, Karisma does a bit of living between cities herself. “It’s up and down [between Delhi and Mumbai],” says Karisma. “Today, it’s fun to have a busy life in that sense, [to] go up and down. The modern couple and modern life today are all about jetsetting.
What about talk that her Mumbai sensibilities never quite adjusted to Delhi? “Honestly, that’s absolutely not true,” Karisma denies. “I love Delhi. I think it’s a wonderful city; the spaces are wonderful. I’ve been in and out of Delhi for so long now that I honestly really, really like Delhi. And now I’ve made two-three good friends too. And the food in Delhi… You can’t beat the food there.” If she weren’t so proper I’d accuse her of salivating.
You can change the spelling but you can’t take the Kapoor out of the girl. And Karisma, like the rest of her famous filmi family, loves her food. “I like to endorse healthy living,” she says. “Don’t deny yourself. I’m going to eat French fries now. I’m not just going to be on fruit juice and salads. That’s the wrong way. Eat and lose weight. Do everything in moderation in your life, and it’ll all work out. And frankly, that’s what I’ve done.” So she enjoyed her pregnancies to the max, put on 23kg while carrying her son and then lost it. This, despite the fact that she hates working out. And yoga. “I know yoga is amazing, but I just don’t have the patience. So I work out. I like to gym, I love to walk, I like the natural options.”
