The internet is the new monarch of entertainment and with the advent of web series, Bollywood filmmakers and actors have marched into the realm. The platform has drawn many artists to experiment with content that is beyond the limited qualifications of small and big screens. India's large consumer base for the internet has catapulted uncomplicated consumption of content which is devoid of constraints.


Another Bollywood actress to jump the bandwagon is Karisma Kapoor. After her failed comeback in Bollywood with Dangerous Ishq, the actress brought her Bollywood career to a standstill. She was quoted by a leading daily, "I am happy being a mother. I'm not closed to the idea of acting again, but unless there's something that really touches my heart, I won't take anything up."


However, it seems that the actress has pulled her socks with her new found love in web series that will mark her return in acting. About the same, a source said to a leading daily, "Karisma has signed a deal with Ekta Kapoor's Alt Balaji. She is doing a web series for them. They have locked the script and dates, but everything is being kept under wraps till the big announcement."


Ekta Kapoor's long established acquaintance with the Kapoor family was enough to persuade Karisma to greenlight the project.


"Kareena and Ekta are quite close to each other. Plus, her brother-in-law Saif Ali Khan also enjoyed his digital experience, so he and Bebo asked Karisma to hear the script. She agreed to do that. She liked the story and realised that the web is a burgeoning space, so she decided to give it a shot," said the source.
