Ac­tor Ka­reena Kapoor Khan (right) says her sis­ter and ac­tor Karisma Kapoor (left) is not go­ing to make a come­back in Bol­ly­wood in the near fu­ture. “Right now she is very happy in her space. I doubt if she is ready for that (films). She is not think­ing about it,” says Ka­reena.

Karisma, 41, a mother of two, ap­par­ently does not want to spend too much time shoot­ing. “I don’t think she wants to do films again but she does lots of com­mer­cials for var­i­ous brands as that doesn’t take much time. She is look­ing pret­tier af­ter the kids, but I don’t think she can ded­i­cate that much time,” says Ka­reena. A na­tional award­win­ning ac­tor Karisma mar­ried Delhi-based in­dus­tri­al­ist Sun­jay Ka­pur in 2003 and have two chil­dren — Sa­maira and Ki­aan Raj. The cou­ple had a dif­fi­cult mar­riage and have filed for a mu­tual di­vorce.

Talk­ing about her el­der sis­ter, who she has al­ways re­ferred to as an in­spi­ra­tion, Ka­reena says. “She al­ways ad­vises me and has been an in­spi­ra­tion not for me but for other women as well. She is look­ing her best even af­ter hav­ing two chil­dren. I will al­ways as­pire to be like her,” says the 34-year-old, who mar­ried ac­tor Saif Ali Khan in 2012.

When asked on how she jug­gles be­tween her pro­fes­sional and per­sonal life, the Jab We Met ac­tor says that for her fam­ily comes first be­fore ev­ery­thing. “I have al­ways been a re­spon­si­ble daugh­ter and sis­ter. For me my fam­ily comes first be­fore any­thing else in life. Work is not ev­ery­thing for me. I al­ways try to take out time for my mother, sis­ter, niece and nephew. It’s im­por­tant to spend time with one’s loved ones,” she says.
