Ekta Kapoor is one of the most successful producers we have. She recently took to Instagram and shared a video of foreigners watching Indian TV serials for the first time. They had no idea about them.
Sharing the video, Ekta wrote, “To all my Indian fellow producers…we are pretty much an enigma for the international soap viewing audience, but these reactions to various soaps by different producers are just so howlarioussss!! Must say, it reminds me of the the time in 2007 when i met the head of Fox TV, Dana Holden and I remember telling her about a ‘Mahasangam’, and her first reaction was “What’s that!?” And I said, “just imagine if all the actors of ‘Dexter’, ‘Prison Break’, ‘Brothers & Sisters’ land up in one set and shoot at one time… she said “well that would be a production nightmare!!’”
She added, “And I said “yep exactly and we do it once every 3 months” This is to say that at the lowest of budgets, we manage creating the best possible entertainment for mass india.”
Ekta recently distanced herself from Pavitra Rishta Fund, set up with an aim to spread mental health awareness among people. She did this after Vishal Kirti, brother-in-law of Sushant Singh Rajput, gave out a strong message against using the late actor as a poster boy for mental health awareness.
She tweeted, “Even though this is not a fund started by me, but started by Zee and is a needed one at that, I am always with Zee for any other mental awareness fund that they want to do, but on this one I would like to respectfully dissociate myself. #SSR Hope the truth prevails.”
She also posted a note that read: “While I support the cause of mental health, I dissociate myself from the Pavitra Rishta Fund till the investigations are carried out and we have a clear picture on Sushant’s unfortunate death. I withdraw myself from this fund individually as of now, as it seems that there is more to this tragic incident. Like the rest of the country, I would like the truth to come out.”
