Karisma Kapoor's lucky place
Superstitious actress considers a sea-front club in Bandra lucky for her
Karisma Kapoor, who will be seen on the big screen after six years, is pulling out all the stops for a smooth sail. The actress, who is superstitious, considers a sea-front club in Bandra (where she hangs out) a lucky place for her.
All her film-related matters are discussed by the film’s director Vikram Bhatt at the very same club. Even when the place was undergoing repairs, the actress would insist that anything to do with the film had to be told to her there. On some occasions there would be no provision for proper amenities due to the renovations but Lolo would still visit the club.
Says Bhatt, “The place has been under repairs and on many occasions there would be nothing to eat and drink. But at Karisma’s insistence over glasses of water, we would discuss the film related stuff.” He adds, “Anyone would have avoided the place, but she would sit there for hours. She would just forget the surrounding area.”
Incidentally, even when the superstitious Lolo began shooting for the film in September she had requested it be preponed as her first day of the shoot was during the shraadh period — considered inauspicious by many. In the revised schedule, Lolo had given her first shot before the shraadh began, and then continued filming as scheduled during that period.
