The queen of Indian Television, the person who changed the very scenario of daily soaps, the TRP queen, and the creative mind who is ruling the television for more than 15 years now is- Ekta Kapoor. Born on June 7, 1975 to Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor, Ekta is the Joint Managing Director and Creative Director of Balaji Telefilms. Her television journey started with the show ‘Hum Paanch’ and since then she has been capturing the hearts of the Indian as well as International audience with her TV soaps.
From ‘Hum Paanch’ to ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu thi’ , ‘Bade Achche Lagte hain’ to ‘Pavitra Rishta’ Ekta perfectly knows what the Indian audience like to watch on television. She is also a known film producer and has many hit films like ‘The Dirty Picture’ , ‘Once Upon a Time in Mumbai’ and many others to her credit.
As Ekta celebrates her birthday, we bring to you five attributes of her life that makes her different from rest:
Her Strong Belife in Spirituality
Ekta kapoor is bohemian in her thoughts but she is conservative in her actions. She calls herself spiritual and not superstitious. She believes in offering prayers to God before starting any of her work. Her obsession with the letter ‘K' is known to all.
Though she is one of the biggest producers of television, this one fact about her life is known to all. She is quite arrogant and time and again has had differences with many of the actors and her employers working under her owing to her arrogance and stubborn nature. She believes in ‘perfection’ and if something irks her, then she does go bizarre.
A Party Animal
Ekta Kapoor and her parties are famous in B-TOWN. Every now and then there is a bash at her place which is graced by all big faces of television and Bollywood fraternity. Her social media posts also boasts of her parties. It is said that if you are partying with the queen of daily soaps, you cannot escape the booze and dance floor.
Ability to uncover hidden talents
Like we have Salman Khan who is known to give break to many faces in films, we have Ekta Kapoor who has drifted up the lost careers of many TV actors. Ekta can make you fall in love with a 40 year old chubby man like Ram Kapoor or she can make you drool over an failed film actor like Ronit Roy and the list is endless.
Making attention grabbing Web Series
Ekta has the guts to against the tide at her own cost. And now the lady has ventured into web films. After gluing the audience to her daily soaps, she has taken a step forward to get her audience stuck to her digitally as well by launching ‘ALT Balaji Application’ with 5 new web series.
We wish Ekta a happy birthday!
