So if today Karisma finds her life at the crossroads perhaps her mother has some solutions.
Luckily Karisma’s sister Kareena married sensibly, and not because she had a point to prove.

All of this mess with those embarrassing accusations in a legal public domain thrown at the daughter of one of the most illustrious families of the entertainment industry could have been entirely avoided if this horrible mis-match (between Sanjay Kapur and Karisma Kapoor) had not happened.
Karisma Kapoor was all set to marry Abhishek Bachchan, the date was set and the wedding cards were all printed and ready to be dispatched when something terrible happened.
Something that made Abhishek call off the wedding at that eleventh hour. But in all fairness Sanjay Kapur is not wrong in saying Karisma, Lolo to friends, married on the rebound. In real life, specially when it involves a high-profile family, a marriage done in anger and desperation never works.
After his brother Sanjay was killed in an air crash in 1980, he gave up his job as an airline pilot and was elected to Sanjay's parliamentary seat.
Mr Kapur has not only accused his wife of marrying him on the rebound, he has also accused her of spending his money. If he knew his wife-to-be was marrying him on the rebound why did he go ahead with the match? Her one official marriage to an entrepreneur Mukesh Aggarwal ended with a gruesome suicide. Sanjay Kapur’s accusations against his wife in the public domain remind me of the very public exchange of insults between Leander Paes and Rhea Pillai. If Karisma had married where she was supposed to, she wouldn’t have needed to face this humiliation. A portrait of dignity, Karisma has always been an obedient daughter.
May I venture to suggest that very often men outside the entertainment industry marry not as equals but fans. Luckily there was no such tragedy in the Kapur-Kapoor alliance. When Karisma’s angry protective father Randhir Kapoor says the Kapoor family doesn’t need her husbad’s money he’s making himself sound ridiculous. Every move that she makes in life is Mama’s calling.
