Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor returns with Mentalhood, ALT Balaji’s new show exploring motherhood and urban anxieties.

After a long gap of eight years, Karisma Kapoor returns with Mentalhood, ALT Balaji’s new show exploring motherhood and urban anxieties. Karisma essays Meira Sharma, a multitasking ‘tiger mom’ trying to raise her three kids in Mumbai. The show highlights themes of helicopter parenting, bullying, gender dynamics, and more.

“Each episode has a message for everyone. Even men watching it would say ‘Oh my God! I didn’t realize this.’ We deal with bullying, gender, exam fever, and surrogacy. It’s actually entertainment with learning, which is so beautiful,” Karisma shares.

Karisma was convinced to do the show by producer Ekta Kapoor, who was sure she would be the perfect fit for the series. A mother of two, Karisma feels the show will reach out to every mom trying to navigate day-to-day challenges.

“When I heard the script, I could connect with it as it’s something I go through on a daily basis. I wanted to reach out to the audiences and tell them they aren’t alone. We are going through this journey together,” she says.

Karisma Kapoor had made her acting debut in 1991 and has seen the industry evolve, hails the ongoing OTT revolution in India. The actress feels web shows encourage actors to be more realistic with their performances. “I think the web space is a perfect balance of film and television,” she says, “During my day, if you would act a certain way they would be like ‘Madam thoda sa aur expression dikhaiye’ (Please show more expressions). There was a certain scale you had to reach.”

Karisma Kapoor’s career includes the comedies of the 1990s — films like Raja Babu, Andaz Apna Apna, Coolie. No. 1, and more. The actress talked about returning to the space in the future. “I don’t plan anything as such, but yes, I do enjoy doing a light-hearted comedy,” she says.
