Member, ICE Academic Council
A creative force, a dynamic personality, an insightful content creator…Ekta Kapoor is all this and much, much more. She heralded the satellite television boom in the country, pioneering an entire genre of television content and creating some of the most successful shows India has ever seen. In other words, she has, almost singe-handedly, revamped the television landscape in India.
As the creative force behind Balaji's success, Ekta Kapoor believes in a hands-on approach and is completely cued in about all of Balaji's TV shows and films, routinely putting in 16 - 18 hour work days. She has an uncanny understanding of the Indian viewer, knowing what they want to see; and how to package it and bring it to them.
