At such a young age, she has already become mentor and god mother to many talents in the television industry.

She off late has become a brand to reckon with and is now known mostly as the queen of television.
Jeetendra was at the peak of his career when Ekta was born and she was therefore considered very lucky for her family. Ekta was an average student in school and was never bent towards education. She did her schooling from the Scottish School, Mumbai and later on got her graduation degree from the Mithibhai College at Vile Parle. As her parents knew her dislike for further studies they did not force her for into it. Infact they asked her to look into the business of their home production house, Balaji Films. Ekta was then just 19. Now she is 37. She has done so much with her life in only 18 years.
Ekta has bagged numerous awards on her achievements. The GR8! Women Awards for the most successful woman for the year 2012 went to Ekta. This is the latest award to adorn her kitty which is already full of many such awards.
Ekta’s serials marked the milestone of the Indian Television Industry, she started her career as a TV producer in the year 2000, and her first serial was “Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”. This was a big hit with the audience. People worshiped the actors and the scripts were household topic. Tulsi Irani, the female protagonist was made a superstar in a very short span of time. Due to this serial Ekta Kapoor won the entrepreneur of the year award in 2001 from Ernest and Young. This was the start of her career and there was no stopping her after that.
