Mumbai June 7: Balaji Telefilm’s Sarvesarva Ekta Kapoor has made a career for many newcomers. That is why she is also called ‘Godmother’ in the TV industry. But you may be surprised to read that her career was made possible by a Marathi actor. Unity is at the pinnacle of success today. Not only on TV, but also in web series, it is gaining ground. But it started because of a Marathi actor. (Marathi actors) It was because of this actor that the producers started investing money in Ekta series. And today she is known as a renowned producer.
Ekta started her career in 1995 with the series ‘Padosan’. The series has not been very successful. But then she made two more series, ‘Captain House’ and ‘Mano Ya Na Mano’. Both of these series failed. Given three consecutive flop series, no producer was willing to invest in it. Her father Jitendra had also advised her to give up production and acting. But unity did not give up. She decided to make a comedy series in 1995. At that time, Marathi superstar Ashok Saraf helped her.
Ekta created a series called ‘Hum Paanch’. Ashok Saraf was the main character in this series. Five girls, all five with different tendencies. Due to this, the series was like an annoyed father. Due to Ashok Saraf’s popularity and Dhammal comedy style, ‘Hum Paanch’ became a super hit. Often the conversation in the series was mediocre but Ashok Saraf turned it into a joke based on his experience. This was stated by Ekta Kapoor herself in an interview.
Ekta got enough money as we played five series. The producers were willing to invest money on her as a director. After that, however, Ekta did not look back. She continued to produce one after another superhit series like ‘Kyoki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, Kusum, Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, Kasauti Zindagi Ki, Bade Achche Lagte Hai. And today she is known as the most experienced and successful producer in the TV industry. But this success started with the Marathi actor Ashok Saraf.
