Sonam, daughter of Bollywood veteran Anil Kapoor and designer Sunita Kapoor, wrote in her post: "Happy birthday Karisma Kapoor. You are our inspiration for hard work, determination and doing things no matter the challenges. Also, thanks for paving the way for the Kapoor girls in movies...

Karisma Kapoor belongs to a family of actors. For years, however, it was only the Kapoor men who entered the family business - Karisma's mother Babita and aunt Neetu Kapoor both gave up their careers when they married Randhir and Rishi Kapoor. Karisma broke the unwritten rule of women not acting in 1991, making her debut in Prem Qaidi with the approval of her mother but not, as per Bollywood lore, her father. When her sister Kareena joined the movies a decade later, no Kapoor eyebrows were raised.

Karisma Kapoor's breakout film was the 1996 romantic-drama Raja Hindustaani, opposite Aamir Khan. She featured in several hit films including Dil To Pagal Hai, Judwaa, Biwi No 1 among others. Apart from commercially successful films, Karisma also starred in critically acclaimed movies like Zubeidaa and Fiza to name a few. She was last seen in the web-series Mentalhood.
