While many are hailing Vidya Balan for ushering in the trend of women-centric films, actress Karisma Kapoor reminds everyone that she has already been there and done that.

"Honestly, I think it's (women-centric films) quite amazing. But I would also like to remind you that I used to do that 10 years ago as well - 'Biwi No.1', 'Fiza', 'Zubeidaa' and 'Shakti: The Power'," the 37-year-old told reporters Wednesday here while launching the first look of her film "Dangerous Ishq", which she is doing after nine years.

"So I genuinely feel that a good actor and a good script will always get the audiences in. I don't think it's now or then, if you are a good actor, those kinds of scripts will come to you. It's great that it's still happening," she added.

Directed by Vikram Bhatt, "Dangerous Ishq", a 3D venture, has Karisma in the role of a supermodel who starts seeing past-life in a moment of danger. The film also stars model-actor Rajneesh Duggal. It hits theatres May 11.

At the function, Karisma let out a secret yet unknown to her fans.

"I have been in the industry for almost 20 years, but from my first movie till now, I cannot sit in the audience and see myself on the screen. I just can't do it. It's a secret that I am telling everyone today. I always stand at the back somewhere and gauge," said the 37-year-old.

Karisma took a sabbatical from movies after marrying Dehi-based businessman Sanjay Kapoor in 2003. She has two kids - daughter Samaira and son Kiian.

    Women centric films were always there, be it with Nutan, Shabana, Smita or Karishma...but they didnt break box office records like VB's movies are doing now! Its an indication of how audience appreciation for such movies has increased over the years!

    but now these films are working at the boxoffice big time. who would have expect kahaani to gross over 50 crores!!?

    I agree it's not a new trend, like smita patil and tonnes of actresses before VB had been doing Women-centric films. VB is a great actress, but she hasn't revolutionised anything. We can go far back in time and recognise amazing women-centric films. Mother India anyone? :)

    Well, someone had to say it and I am glad that KK was the one, with her own work to back her. I don't discount VB's work in The Dirty Picture but she is getting entirely too much undue credit for "changing the face of Bollywood". She played her role excellently in a film. That's where it ends. But I guess VB has the advantage of being a fine actress in a sea of mediocrity. KK did not have the same situation as her contemporaries were some of the best actresses Indian cinema has ever seen. In the end it is appalling how the media sensationalises things without context or history. I am glad she made this statement.
