Bollywood star Karisma Kapoor recently attended a session at Harvard Business School as a speaker. The actress shared her thoughts and experience for a session on 'Soft Power of Bollywood' as part of the Harvard India Conference.

On Monday, Karisma took to her Instagram handle to share pictures of her visit to the Ivy League university in Boston, USA. For the occasion, Karisma opted for a shiny cream-coloured kurta with palazzo pants, She also wore a grey overcoat to deal with the windy weather of Boston. She shared pictures of her posing in front of the school. Karisma's superstar sister Kareena also briefly joined the conversation through video call.

Sharing the pictures, Karisma wrote, "It was an absolute pleasure and honour to be a speaker at the India Conference at Harvard. Shout out to @kareenakapoorkhan for joining us for an impromptu but insightful chat. Thank you to @sunnysandhu24 and team #HarvardIndiaConference for being so wonderful. This was truly special ."

Karisma Kapoor was the first woman from the Kapoor family to work in the film industry. She made her debut as an actress in the 1991 film 'Prem Qaidi'. She soon became an audience favourite and featured in several hit films 'Jigar', 'Anari', 'Raja Babu', 'Coolie No.1', 'Saajan Chale Sasural', and 'Jeet' are some of her noted films.

Earlier in an interview with ETimes, Karisma Kapoor had addressed her decade-long sabbatical from the silver screens. She explained, "Oh my God. The word comeback, honestly, should be packed and parcelled away. Let's not keep doing that to us actors. You tell me, when someone comes back to the office after a few years, is he or she making a comeback into the corporate world? He or she's just back to work. And people just behave normally with that person. I think that should be the way with actors as well, whether they're male or female. But especially for females. People tend to reference the ‘comeback' label a little too often and too easily."

Karisma will next be seen in the film titled 'Murder Mubarak'. Directed by the illustrious Homi Adajania and produced by Maddock Films, the film presents a remarkable book-to-screen adaptation of Anuja Chauhan's "Club You To Death." As secrets and lies come to the surface, the story turns the spotlight on an array of suspects, portrayed by an exceptional cast. This includes talents such as Sara Ali Khan, Vijay Varma, Dimple Kapadia, Sanjay Kapoor, Tisca Chopra and Suhail Nayyar, all of whom skillfully mask their characters' ulterior motives.
