It requires guts and a hell lot of determination to invade a territory that was once dominated by men. We are here talking about the Indian television space where the queen of soaps, Ekta Kapoor entered and conquered it. No matter what criticism came her way, she did not lose hope and churned serials that became iconic in their own ways. Be it Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kasautii Zindagi Kay, or the latest Naagin, she released some conventional and unconventional sagas that are superhit. Today, Ekta is just not a filmmaker, producer, or a  joint owner of Balaji Telefilms, but she is a synonym for success.

The Title Song

Ekta Kapoor has an opening/ title song in each of her sagas which in a way summed up the plot of the particular serial. From Tulsi's Rishton Ke Bhi Roop Badalte Hai to Prerna’s Chahat Ke Safar Mein, this musical intro became a trend and how.

Cultural Diversity

The birthday girl has many hit daily soaps to her credit and one of the USP of these shows was it depicting different cultures in different serials. Gujarati, Maharashtrian to Bengali, Ekta served fans a platter full of many cuisine and fans loved the taste.

Big Bindis/Backless Blouses

Fashion is one of the most important aspects which Ekta flashed on her shows. From Komolika’s backless blouses to Ramola’s huge attractive bindis, it became an essential part of looking glam on the small screen.

Punar Janam

While reincarnation aka 'punar janam' cannot be a reality, ask Ekta how to bring a huge twist in a daily soap by using this weapon. Remember, when Tulsi’s husband Mihir who was dead showed up at her second wedding... Ram Ram Jai Raja Ram was the scene.
