Queen Kapoor’s radio debut
Her return to the big screen in Dangerous Ishq wasn’t quite met with the positivity her fans expected, but now they’re in for a real treat as the queen of the Kapoors makes her radio presenting debut.
The 90’s screen siren will present a programme on Christmas Eve on Indian station 92.7 BIG FM. Part of the Big Mensaab Show, Karisma’s special segment called Big On Style, will be an opportunity for the Bollywood beauty to share her expertise on fashion and beauty. Broadcast on 31 stations across the network, from 11am-12pm, the slot will run daily.
Excited about her new venture, Karisma revealed: ‘This is a totally new avenue. I have done films, television and I also have a portal, so why not radio!’ As for what to expect, we’re told they’ll be personal styling tips and some advice she’s observed along the way in the making of over 50 movies.
Although her marriage to Delhi-based businessman Sunjay Kapur is reportedly on the rocks, this hasn’t stopped Lolo (as Karisma is fondly known as in the industry), from focusing on her career. The slot is expected to run for a year and will be managed her long side looking after her two children. Commenting on the new slot, Network Programming Head, 92.7 BIG FM, Manav Dhanda said, ‘Never before has a radio brand in India promised its listeners entertainment, engagement and enrichment with an A-list Bollywood celebrity as a daily feature all year round! With this show, Kapoor makes a daily appointment with radio listeners, which is a pioneering move’.
