Ekta Kapoor’s career has been more than booming, and as she dishes out one hit serial after the other. She just seems to be getting better and better. Born in 1975 on the 7th of June, Ekta is the daughter of Shobha Kapoor and actor Jeetendra. She is right now heading Balaji Telefilms, the largest production house on the small screen. Most of the shows and serials we watch on Star Plus and Sony Entertainment Television are produced by this banner. The success of her production house has led her to even start her own motion pictures production house, Balaji Motion Pictures. Many of the films we have seen recently, such as Shootout At Lokhandwala, Love, Sex Aur Dhoka, and Ragini MMS have all been produced under this banner. The feisty young lady attributes her extreme good fortune to her belief in God and hopes that in the coming years she sees a similar amount of success.
Ekta began her career with the immensely successful Hum Paanch, followed by the phenomenal Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. It was her second serial that literally started the saas-bahu culture on the Indian Television. The show has run for a marathon eight years and even today holds the record for being one of the most popular shows in Asia. Some of Ekta’s latest productions from Balaji Telefilms are Pavitra Rishta, Kya Huyaa Tera Vaada and Bade Achhe Lagte Hain. The secret for the success of these shows are the plots. She makes sure that they are never boring and are plots which people can relate to. These serials are extremely popular as they depict Indian life as it is. These are shows which people from every section of society can relate to and this is what makes the daily dramas some of the most watched shows on television.
Ms. Kapoor’s thoughts on marriage seemed to have caused a great amount of talk in the industry, where, she was heard saying that she will get married at the age of thirty nine. Most people had an opinion on this and wanted their favourite director to get married earlier. However, the young lady knows what is best for her. With a number of movies lined up for release in the year 2013 and 2014, Ekta’s career seems to be on an all time high. She has been repeatedly hitting the right chord with the audience making her movies a constant favorite. Hopefully, this will last and we will get to see many more Ekta Kapoor serials and movies.
