Second innings: Bollywood scene

UNP ImagePublicity for Karisma Kapoor's comeback film Dangerous Ishq is on a roll. And then there will be a slew of movies marking the return of other married actresses, be it Madhuri Dixit or Manisha Koirala.

Bollywood once considered marriage the death knell for its female leads, but here are some actresses set to revive their careers in B-town:

Madhuri Dixit

The Bollywood diva bid adieu to showbiz after marrying US-based surgeon Sriram Nene and moved to Denver from Mumbai to start a family. After making an uneventful comeback with 2007 release Aaja Nachle, the 44-year-old is set to create magic in her new innings with Dedh Ishqiya and Gulab Gang. Vishal Bharadwaj's Dedh Ishqiya is a sequel to Vidya Balan's 2010 film Ishqiya, while Anubhav Sinha's Gulab Gang will see her playing a gangster.

Karisma Kapoor

She ruled the roost in the 1990s but cut down on her film projects after marrying Delhi-based businessman Sanjay Kapur in 2003 to focus on her family. Last seen in the 2006 film Mere Jeevan Saathi, Kapoor, 37, hopes to return with a bang with Vikram Bhatt's supernatural 3D thriller Dangerous Ishq, where she will be seen in different avatars.

Raveena Tandon

Post marriage Raveena, 37, didn't completely disappear from the scene and made her presence felt with movies like Sandwich and Bbuddah Hoga Teraa Baap as well as TV reality shows Chak De Bachche and Chhote Miyan 2. However, she is now set to play a protagonist in Shobhna's 7 Nights.


She was the queen and vacated the throne after marrying producer Boney Kapoor. Her goodbye movie was the hit family drama Judaai. But now Sridevi, 48, mother of two daughters Jhanvi and Khushi is making a comeback with English Vinglish, directed by R. Balki's wife Gauri Shinde. In the film, Sridevi plays an Indian woman married to an American, and enrols in an English learning programme to please her family.

Manisha Koirala

One of the most beautiful actresses of her time, Koirala is also reviving her career post-sabbatical and marriage. She starred in Onir's award-winning film I AM, but now the 41-year-old will be seen in a full-fledged role in 3D horror movie BHHOOoo.!, a sequel to Ram Gopal Varma's 2003 film Bhoot. While Bhoot was about a couple in a haunted apartment, the sequel is about a six-year-old child named Allayna.

Juhi Chawla

She is one of the few actresses who have been active even after marriage. The 44-year-old juggled both roles homemaker and actress. However, post-marriage, Chawla turned to offbeat films like My Brother Nikhil, Bas Ek Pal and I AM. Now, she is gearing up for the release of her new film Son of Sardar.
