Well-known for her like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kasauti, Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki etc. Ekta Kapoor has been criticised for her choice of shows. Viewers call her shows ‘regressive and impractical’. But the producer feels that the writers of her shows must be applauded for their gripping story-lines. According to a shows she has said-
“TV has become for the masses. Why don’t we call ‘Game of Thrones’ regressive? It is the same thing – you watch a woman give birth to dragons there, you have a red woman killing, a red wedding. I think we (in India) write some great stories. When I had gone to America and met an American TV producer, I was told that she was actually amazed at the kind of writing that we do here.”
