Karisma Kapoor, nicknamed "Lolo" (born 25 June 1974 at Mumbai, India) is a Bollywood actress.

She is the daughter of Randhir Kapoor, an actor popular during the 1970s and 80s, and actress Babita. Her grandfather is Raj Kapoor and her sister is actress Kareena Kapoor. Karisma made her debut in the 1991 movie Prem Quaidi and has since then acted in sixty movies. Her cousin is Shivani Kapoor.

Balancing commercial crowd-pleasers and art-house dramas, Kapoor has garnered four Filmfare Awards to date including Filmfare Best Actress Award for Raja Hindustani (1996) and Fiza (2000), Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award for Dil To Pagal Hai (1997) and Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actress for Shyam Benegal's Zubeidaa. She also won a National Award for Dil To Pagal Hai.

She dated and was engaged to Abhishek Bachchan, with whom she broke up in 2002 for unknown reasons. On 29 September 2003, she married industrialist Sanjay Kapur according to Sikh marriage rites. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Samaira, on 11 March 2005. Before the birth of their child, it was widely speculated that she would be divorcing Sanjay Kapur. However, the couple reconciled before their 2nd year anniversary.
