Karisma Kapoor was reportedly the first female actor to come out of the Kapoor house and join her career as an actor in the Hindi film industry. She broke a decades-long family-imposed ban on the Kapoor women acting and made her debut in the industry in 1991 with the film Prem Qaidi. She rose to fame from doing several films. But her 1994 film Khuddar brought a bad turn in her career with the song Sexy Sexy Mujhe Log Bole. This song raised many questions and also raised many people’s eyebrows. Two decades after the release of the song, Karisma Kapoor opened up about the controversy and had this to say about the song and the film.
