Popular producer Ekta Kapoor, whose latest film “Veere Di Wedding” is being lauded by many, will bring in her birthday in Tirupati on Thursday instead of hosting a lavish party. She says she gets “terribly reflective” on birthdays.

“No party for tomorrow (Thursday)! As always I’ll travel to Tirupati today alone and bring in my birthday in front of the Almighty. Come back for dinner with family tomorrow. I get terribly reflective on birthdays,” Ekta tweeted on Wednesday.

Even before the release of “Veere Di Wedding” on June 1, Ekta visited the Ajmer Sharif Dargah to pray for good fortune for the film.

For her launch in showbiz, she started with TV shows in the mid-1990s. Among her popular shows are “Hum Paanch”, “Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi”, “Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki”, “Kabhii Sautan Kabhii Sahelii” and “Naagin”.

No issues with CBFC, my problem is with society: Ekta Kapoor

  • Ekta Kapoor makes it clear that her strife is with society
  • She said that she has no problem with CBFC
  • She also pointed out how there are better issues to focus on

After fighting many battles with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC),  Alankrita Shrivastav directorial venture “Lipstick Under My Burkha” was released.

During the film’s trailer launch, Ekta Kapoor, who distributed the film, said that she had no problem with the CBFC, but with the society.

”There is no problem with CBFC, my problem is with society, which at some point speaks about the same issue in its own ways. If you talk to any girl, you will come to know about five to 10 such incidents happening with her in one day where, being a woman, she has to prove herself a little harder. She has to learn how to combat from a very young age,” Ekta Said.

Explaining about the middle finger shown in the poster of the film “Lipstick Under My Burkha”, Ekta said: “The middle finger is not for the CBFC but pointed towards the patriarchal society that does not let us come out, which compels us to suppress our voice. That is why this issue is not just CBFC’s, this issue is about ideology, it is about patriarchy.”

During the press conference, the panel consisted of Ekta Kapoor, Alankrita Srivastava, Konkana Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur.

The film, produced by Prakash Jha, was stuck with the CBFC for six months as it revolves around four women and their sexual desires and freedom. But finally, the CBFC has passed the trailer of the film with ‘A’ certificate.

Ratna Pathak Shah, who was one of the senior most actors among the four women in the film, said the film should not be loaded with any label as it is difficult to live with and she did this film as she found it very interesting and funny.

“Let’s not load the film down with words such as ‘life-changing movement’ or ‘new wave’ etc., as these things, these labels can be very hard to live with.

Ekta Kapoor has always been vocal about her thoughts on women empowerment.

“When I saw the film, I found it extremely interesting, extremely sensitive, funny film. I enjoyed watching it and I think even the audience will do,” said the Sarabhai vs Sarabhai actress.

She also addressed the issue of Goods and Services Tax (GST) by saying: “Not just lipstick, but sanitary pads should also not be taxed by the government. It’s a necessity for a woman’s hygiene.” IANS
