Please introduce yourself to our readers.
Hi, I am Karishma Kotak. An Actor, performer, model, anchor, or entrepreneur. Choose what you want to identify me as. Here to entertain my audience and get all your love.
Please tell us about your education.
Well, my childhood was in boarding school in Panchgani and when I started school back in England it was between South Africa and London. My father had his own business so we kept traveling between the two countries. I was very blessed to see so much of the world at such a young age.
What are your favorite childhood memories?
My childhood memories would be playing with the let’s, going to my aunt’s house where she grew her own food. I was just one with nature there. We would bring fresh fruits and veggies from the fields and cook them and I would listen to stories all day. It was a great time. I had a ball growing up
When and how did you get into modeling?
I started young when I was in college. I got offers and took them as they came.
And how did you get a start in acting and movies?
I started getting modeling offers while I was studying and then I got to be the kingfisher calendar girl. That was a major breakthrough and then one thing led to another. Bigg boss happened and the flood gates opened for a plethora of opportunities.
Which was your best acting experience of all the movies you have worked in so far?
I can’t pick one, to be honest. Each one is unique and dear to me differently. I won’t get the ups without the downs. So I won’t be able to pick one.
Tell us about some of your upcoming movie projects.
There are two movies I am currently shooting. I am hosting a few tournaments and then there is the Curtly and Karishma show which is an ongoing thing.
Name your dream role you’d like to do one day?
I would love to play Penelope Cruz” part from Vicky Christina Barcelona. I just loved that movie.
How was your BIG BOSS experience?
It was a roller coaster. You get down and then you have to pick yourself up. I met some amazing humans and created great relations. I won’t change a thing if I were to do it again.
You are now seen actively promoting fitness and sports. What led you to be a fitness influencer?
I want to inspire people to have a healthier and fitter life. I like working out and since I am followed on social media, why not spread the message. So I would be doing that and I have been at it. It’s a great time to share knowledge and create your own well-being community and we all get to grow together. A total win-win for everyone.
We heard that you will be presenting the Cricket league in Canada. Can you tell us more about this and your love for cricket?
Yes, I would be hosting the GT20 Canada which is their IPL equivalent. It’s a great tournament with some legends in it. I watched cricket from the 2000s. We would go to watch a game sometimes at Lords or Oval. I loved the way the Indians competed and won on so many occasions away from home and that drove me to delve even more into it.
What motivated you to start your own sports show “Karishma and Curtly show”?
I love cricket and I am a great admirer of fast bowling who is better than Sir Curtly to have as a co-host. So when the opportunity came, I took it straight on.
What other projects are you now working on?
There are a couple of movies I am working on, a music video and I would be hosting a few mega-events.
Three things that make you happy?
My home, my family, and my pet.
Do you have any tricks or routines to stay healthy and beautiful?
I do a quick yoga routine and I meditate. That gives me perspective and that helps me attain good levels of health both physical and mental.
Do you have any other secret talent(s)?
I can make wine disappear.
What is your message for your fans in the middle-east?
I love you all and your love matters the most. I love coming here and hope to see you all soon.
