We all know how religious and superstitious Ekta Kapoor is. Whether it’s her fondness for letter ‘K’ or the rituals she follows to avert mishaps that can affect her projects or changing titles of her films due to numerological reasons, Ekta has time and again proved that she is superstitious. If sources close to the TV Czarina are to be believed, she has just crossed the line.
Last month, there were reports that the sets of her popular Star Plus show, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, located at Click Nixon at Saki Naka is haunted. The show’s leading lady Divyanka Tripathi admitted that the show’s producer, Shobha Kapoor keeps organizing poojas on location to ward off the evil spirits. Considering that, the latest we hear is that Ekta has now decided to cast actors of her television soaps not on the basis of their merit but inspecting their horoscope or we say, kundlis. Yes, you read it right! A source close to the production house suggest, “After Yeh Hai Mohabbatein incident, Ekta has become very cautious and doesn’t want to take any chance.”
Besides visiting Mumbai’s famous Siddhivinayak temple every Tuesday, Ekta is also spotted regularly at a famous coffee outlet near the temple feeding chaara to cows.
