New Delhi, May 9 : In a new development, Ekta Kapoor is now a LinkedIn Influencer that includes global leaders from across geographies and fields such as Bill Gates, Arianna Huffington to name a few.
A game-changer for Indian television, she is popularly known as the ‘content czarina’ who has charted the map for the massive growth of not just Indian television but also, movies and OTT alike. With a legacy of iconic TV shows such as ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki’, and ‘Nagin’ along with a distinguished set of movies, her debut as a LinkedIn Influencer is a celebration of her illustrious work in the Indian industry.
Unparalleled with her vision, Ekta figures as India’s leading producer across media- movies, television along with OTT digital space. Her two-decade-long bold and enterprising journey in the entertainment industry, and her unflinching vision to dream big, makes her a powerful voice on the platform- from entertainment to socially driven projects as part of her artistry.
A trailblazer in the true sense- with 124 TV Serials, 39 Films And 25 Web Shows, there is no screen that is untouched and unconquered by the content queen, Ekta Kapoor who has spread her wings with diverse range of genres across screens. Expressing her delight on being named as a LinkedIn Influencer, Ekta Kapoor shared, 'Being a part of the Influencer community on LinkedIn gives me an opportunity to share my learnings and inspire others to find their space in the world of content. I am honoured to be a part of this distinguished group of Influencers and I look forward to engaging with talented professionals and entrepreneurs on the platform.'
Welcoming her, Adith Charlie, Managing Editor - India, LinkedIn said, “We are delighted to welcome Ekta Kapoor as a LinkedIn Influencer on our platform. Her remarkable journey in the entertainment industry makes her a strong voice for entrepreneurs, producers, and writers across industries. Her unwavering confidence in changing the face of Indian television and pursuing her dreams will inspire our members to challenge the status quo. We are excited to see her spark fresh conversations on our platform.”
Ekta, being a star kid has always chosen her own path even though it meant not choosing the obvious- acting as her father stays a legend.She is the only star kid who has made a mark in the business world and also, became one of the only path breaking women entrepreneurs amidst an industry that largely stayed male dominated, challenged and conquered by Ekta.
She built her business when no one thought that any woman could have ruled the production department. Being a single mother through surrogacy, which again stayed a method untouched by the women of the country so far- Ekta is not just an inspiration on the work front but is a true influencer in every walk of life where she rules the path.(UNI)
