Ekta Kapoor, the woman who changed the face of Indian television. The daughter of star Jitendra always dreamt to live a simple life like any other Indian girl but the destiny has something big for her. She has been started calling the Queen of Indian Television. She is the joint MD and producer of Balaji Telefilms, the production house that brought a new wave on Indian Tv.
Her daily soaps like ‘Hum Paanch, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, Naagin, Chandrakanta, Ye Hai Mohabbatein, Kumkum Bhagya, Kavach, Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki and many more talk about from women empowerment to sex to society to sanskaar.
Ekta lately appeared on the fifth episode of Ted Talks India Nayi Soch. In the show, she began with “Life was good, but I had no plan B. I had no option. Sometimes your greatest curse turns out to be your best blessing. I decided I was starting a TV serial business. My dad invested in me.”
She added that once a person asked my father to buy gold for me to which he answered: “Gold should be within her, what will she do with gold outside?”
“Now comes the twist in the plot. Your biggest twist happens when you are at ground zero. The lowest point in your life — when you fall lower from a low. For me, it was when lots of my pilots got rejected,” she further said.
Her words were inspiring, “Honestly, no channel wanted to meet me. How many chances will we give Jeetendra’s daughter? Some media professionals saw those pilots with my father and one of them asked, ‘Are you putting your money into your daughter’s hobby?”
On talking about supporting a sex-oriented film Lipstick Under My Burkha, she said, “I said Sex and Sanskaar are two aspects o a woman.”
