Ektaa’s special video on Guru Purnima
On Monday, marking the occasion of Guru Purnima and 23 years of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Ektaa also shared a video along with a long note. Ektaa said that in 1994, famous astrologer Pandit Janardhan prophesied her prosperity. He promised her that the audience will be as engrossed in her new TV show (Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi) as they were in Ramayan and Mahabharat on Doordarshan.
The note read, “Year 1994. I’m sitting in my frn Shabina’s house and pandit Janardan sees me (now more popular with Indian Matchmaking) and tells me I will have my own company I tell him I’m planning to start in August and he says all will be good but wait for your 25th year that’s when and will make a show that people will watch like they used to watch Ramayan and Mahabharata on Doordarshan (his exact words). I say I don’t think I can make a mytho (mythological series) so good but let’s see I say.”
She added, “Year 2000 six years have passed since HUM PAANCH and I’m asking Sameer sir @sameern to give me a drama my South Indian drama is doing well and Hindi channel should see it, he says yes. Same year, March 2000, I cast a new girl for a important role but on seeing her on tape I tear her contract only to sign as her as a lead on a spring day in March it also happens to be her birthday @smritiiraniofficial.”
Ektaa wished her fans Guru Purnima and shared how she learned from her life and viewers.
