June 7, marks a very important day for Indian television as a pioneer who had started everything from the scratch, Ekta Kapoor was born on this day. The producer has created some evergreen daily soaps under her banner like Hum Paanch, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, and Kasauti Zindagi Kay. No matter how many new daily soaps come up today, we can never forget those days when we used to sit in front of the TV to watch these shows.
Ekta Kapoor who is the daughter of the famous actor, Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor, is an Indian television producer, film producer and director. She has a number of Hindi cinemas and soap operas to her name and is a joint managing director and creative head of Balaji Telefilms Limited. She had also launched the Alt Balaji in 2017 to her credit. Ekta had welcomed her son, Ravie Kapoor in 2019 through surrogacy.
As the ace director turns 46 on June 7, 2021, her brother, Tusshar Kapoor took to his IG handle to share a video that comprises pictures of the brother-sister duo from their childhood to the present day. He wrote, "Its your birthday & may your life always be happy & healthy. Thank you for being an incredible sister. Happy Birthday Ekta #sistersbday #loveher #birthdaycelebrations #fun #siblinglove #bond #family #togetherness"
Not only Tusshar Kapoor, Ekta's very close friend and actress, Anita Hassanandani also took to her Instagram handle to pour birthday wishes for her with a picture. Alongside the picture Anita wrote, "I always make it a point to wish you sharp @ midnight cos I want to be the first to wish you...Being a new mom I doubt I will be awake then so I’m posting and wishing you before time...That way I’ll maintain being the first one to wish you. cos you are the FIRST MOST important person in my life and the only one I love as much as my family... maybe even more cos You are FAMILY. I must’ve done something right in my previous birth to have you in my life. I love you I wish you great health happiness and LOVE. Muaaah muaaah muaaahh. Happiest birthday."
Besides Anita, her co-star from Yeh Hain Mohabbatein, Karan Patel also took to his IG handle to post a picture and wish the director on her birthday. He wrote, "I keep using the same old picture to wish you because you just don’t seem to age at all, in-fact keep getting hotter. Wish you the happiest birthday darling ….. may you continue to flash that million dollar smile lifelong, may all that you wish for come true and may you always be the blessed reason for many people like me, who can smile for the way our lives have become thanks to you …. Just be you because there isn’t an alternate to perfection as yet, Lots and lots of love and luck always baby ….. love you EK .. @ektarkapoor @ek_ek_ekoo"
While birthday wishes are pouring in from family and friends in the television fraternity, Ekta took to her IG stories to share a glimpse of her birthday from what seems to be her hotel room. The director shared a video of the decorated room along with the birthday cake and captioned it as "all alone in."
We wish Ekta Kapoor a joyous and prosperous year ahead!
