Karishma Sharma talks about how Ekta Kapoor has had a huge hand in her career

Karishma Sharma emerged as a bold actress by being a part of Ekta Kapoor's erotic web series Ragini MMS Returns. She has gone a long way from Modelling, TV, Web series, and finally Movies.


Talking about how she has achieved so much, she said “It actually feels really good because I'm just 24 and there are so many people out there who are struggling. I think I have been so lucky but one person who has a big hand in it is Ekta (Kapoor) mam because it all started with her as I did small roles in Pavitra Rishta and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. And believing me for Ragini was a very big thing and then again giving me an opportunity to play this role in Hum. It was equally tough as the show was on me and there was a lot of responsibility. And this show (Hum), the character is so deep and with so many layers. I just feel very creative and lucky that I'm doing so much work like Comedy Circus, another film with Kunal Roy Kapur which is releasing in September and I also did a Gajendra Verma's single Tera Ghata which has also become quite popular. So I just want to keep working and doing new things and achieve more in life.” 


Commenting on whether she was Ekta Kapoor's favorite, she said “I don't know if I have become her favourite but I would love to be there because she's the queen of Bollywood and she has made me who I am today. Karishma Sharma is because of Ekta Kapoor. You know there are lot of people and there is lot of work in our entertainment industry but to believe in someone is really a big thing. She giving me Ragini was something that she believed in me that yaar ye ladki kar sakti hai (this girl can do it). So it is most important that I thank her and God that all this is happening to me.”
