Back in 2016 when Tusshar Kapoor welcomed his son via surrogacy, it was said to have set a huge example in the society for encouraging the procedure, more importantly, Tusshar broke a lot of taboos surrounding surrogacy by taking this step. And looks like Ekta is now paving the same way for everybody else. We congratulate Ekta on her baby boy and now eagerly await for a glimpse of her baby.
On the professional front, in April last year, Ekta launched her digital platform Alt Balaji, where she could experiment with content that was not suitable for viewership on television. And even before completing a year, Alt Balaji is one of the most viewed OTT platforms in the country. In 2018, Ekta launched her pet project Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, which stars Erica Fernandes, Parth Samthaan and Hina Khan (who plays the antagonist) in the lead roles.
