The web series Mentalhood is focussed on various struggles a woman has to go through during motherhood. It also salutes the multi-tasking skills of an Indian mother and their constant worrying nature for the kids.
Karisma Kapoor talked about her role in the web series. She also opened up on why she chose Mentalhood for her acting comeback. She said, "Out of choice I wanted to be with my family and children. After a while when I heard this script it was so interesting, the script was about today’s mother and it was so strong. Women of all ages and all those who are mothers will identify with my characters. It is also something which I am going through right now. Young parents and older parents will identify with Mentalhood. My character is today’s mom and as a human, she will do the right thing and is real. I am thoroughly enjoying shooting with all my lovely co-actors.”
