Karisma Kapoor is one of the most talented actresses in Bollywood, and she never skips a chance to win the hearts of her fans with her acting mettle. The actress made her debut with the movie, Prem Qaidi in 1991. Apart from that, she was seen in several other movies, including Jigar, Anari, Raja Babu, Jeet, Dil To Pagal Hai, and Biwi No. 1, among so many others. The actress was last seen in the mystery thriller, Murder Mubarak. However, during a round table discussion, Karisma, a few days ago, revealed that her name should be announced correctly and it's 'Karizzma’. Soon after that, Kareena called Lolo 'Karisma' in one of the interviews, which left everyone confused. And now, Kareena revealed Karisma's actual pronunciation and shared the safest name to call her sister.

Going further in the interview, Kareena Kapoor Khan revealed that the reason for confusion would possibly be that people didn't know the actual pronunciation of Karisma's name. The actress further mentioned that in her passport, there is no 'H' in her name, and it's only Karisma, which means miracle. Kareena further added that it would be safest to call Karisma 'Lolo', as it's less controversial. In Kareena's words:

"A lot of people didn’t know, and they couldn’t pronounce because… What is Karisma versus Karishma? Karishma is like a miracle. I think she’s also like whatever you want to call me, but obviously, her name does not have an ‘H’ in it and it is just Karisma on her passport."

Kareena Kapoor Khan also added that Karisma is chilled about whatever pronunciation is used for her, as what matters the most is obviously love and emotion. Talking more about it, Kareena added:

"I think we can just call her Lolo, that’s so much easier right? She’s so chill. It’s about the love and emotion but obviously if you say what her name is in the passport, it is Karisma.”
