Karisma Kapoor turns 40 this year with clearly no signs of ageing per se, but it wasn't all dewy when she entered the B-town world.
The Kapoor lad broke all traditions of her 'khandaan' and went ahead to make her Bollywood debut with 'Prem Quaidi' starring opposite Harish Kumar. Unlike her father and uncles', who charmed their into the nations heart, Karisma unveiled a rather uglier side.
With thick brows and unkempt hairdo, Karisma failed to gain the glamour title and was restricted to de-glam roles. Karisma unlike other star kids of today had to prove her mettle in the industry as she didn't have anyone from her paternal side to push her career.
Karisma was known as the thick eye-browed Kapoor for many years as she went on to give hits like, Coolie No. 1, Jigar, Anari, Raja Babu, Andaz Apna Apna and many others.
It was after Raja Hindustaani that Karisma secretly went to US for some cosmetic correction and later returned with a completely catapulted beauty. The actress had some visible changes on her face, which cemented her foothold as the next most beautiful actress.
Karisma had an enormous fan following by now and girls around the nation were aping her style of blow-dried curly hair, well fitted high waist jeans and crop top.
Every college girl in 90's started sporting the exact look and Karisma soon went on to become a role model for many. It was much later during her Fiza days, that Karisma even rocked the de-glam look with much elan.
