Publicity for Karisma kapur's comeback film "Dangerous Ishq" is on a roll. And then there will be a slew of movies marking the return of other married actresses, be it Madhuri Dixit or Manisha Koirala.
Bollywood once considered marriage the death knell for its female leads, but IANS lists the women who are now set to revive their careers in B-town:
Karisma Kapoor: Karisma ruled the roost in the 1990s but cut down on her film projects after marrying Delhi-based businessman Sanjay Kapur in 2003 to focus on her family. Last seen in the 2006 film "Mere Jeevan Saathi", Karisma, 37, hopes to return with a bang with Vikram Bhatt's supernatural 3D thriller "Dangerous Ishq", where she will be seen in different avatars.
Manisha Koirala: One of the most beautiful actresses of her time, Manisha is also reviving her career post-sabbatical and marriage. She played a cameo in Onir's National Award winning film "I Am", but now the 41-year-old will be seen in a full-fledged role in 3D horror movie "BHHOOo.!", a sequel to Ram Gopal Varma's 2003 film "Bhoot". While "Bhoot" narrated the story of a couple in a haunted apartment, the sequel is about a six-year-old child named Allayna.
Raveena Tandon: Post marriage Raveena, 37, didn't completely disappear from the scene and made her presence felt with movies like "Sandwich" and "Bbuddah Hoga Teraa Baap" as well as TV reality shows "Chak De Bachche" and "Chhote Miyan 2". However, she is now set to play a protagonist and her first such endeavour is "Shobhna's 7 Nights", in which she will be seen in a bold avatar.
