She never took a step back doubted her moves, in fact, always went ahead with an optimistic approach.
  2. Ekta first captured the T.V market and then branched out to produce content on the big-screen and well as OTT platforms. Her Bollywood flick ‘Love Sex Aur Dhoka’ created a stir in the industry and paved the way for new opportunities and projects.
