ALTBalaji has recently announced its new web-series Mentalhood, a show on the crazy ride of motherhood. Directed by Karishma Kohli, Mentalhood will see actor Karisma Kapoor making her digital debut as Meira Sharma, playing the role of a small town mom. Staying true to the title, the web-series will showcase the topsy-turvy ride of the various kinds of mothers that exist and how they manoeuvre their way through unreasonable expectations and eccentricities to raise their children. Multi-tasking becomes a habit and constant worrying and guilt feeling becomes their nature.
The nationl award winning actress Karisma is coming back onscreen after a long gap. Karisma, who happens to be a mother of two in real life, will be playing Meira, a small town mom who is trying to navigate through this jungle of Mumbai momzillas. Spilling more on her digital debut, the actress shared, “Out of choice I wanted to be with my family and children. After a while when I heard this script it was so interesting, the script was about today’s mother and it was so strong. Women of all ages and all those who are mothers will identify with my characters. It is also something which I am going through right now. Young parents and older parents will identify with Mentalhood. My character is today’s mom and as a human, she will do the right thing and is real. I am thoroughly enjoying shooting with all my lovely co-actors”
