7 Celebrities who had a tiff with telly queen Ekta Kapoor!

The indisputable queen of Indian daily soaps who kept all the saas and bahus of India occupied with her various drama series has often found herself amidst controversies. Ekta Kapoor has been ruling the silver screen since more than a decade and now seems to have setting up a firm base in Bollywood too. But it won’t be wrong to say that she is also controversy’s favourite child and lands in hot soup every now and then. Take a look at celebrities who had a tiff with telly queen Ekta Kapoor.

1. Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan and Ekta Kapoor, haven’t spoken to each other since 2013 when their respective films, ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara’ and ‘Chennai Express’ clashed at the box office. It is said that SRK wanted to meet Ekta Kapoor to avoid this clash, however; Ekta refused to meet. The actor had requested her to organise a special screening of OUATIMD at his Mumbai bungalow, Mannat, which she refused to do.

2. Sanjay Dutt

In 2008 Ekta Kapoor decided to produce a film with Suniel Shetty and Sanjay Dutt. At Suniel’s insistence, Ekta paid Sanjay Dutt Rs 1.5 crore as a signing amount for the film; however for some reason the movie got stuck. There were rumors of Suniel Shetty approaching Manyata Dutt asking for the repayment of the amount but there was no response from her side. As per the latest reports, Ekta Kapoor has dragged to issue to court and sued Sanjay Dutt for the same.

3. Sunny Leone

Ragini MMS 2 which released on March 2, 2014. At that time, their were news doing the rounds that Ekta is angry with Sunny and she do not want to work with her. It was being said that Sunny gave the team a really hard time during shoot. She would initially agree on doing certain scenes, and then later back out on the day of shoot. Sunny herself was a little miffed with Ekta and Balaji, since she wanted the concentration to be on the horror parts of the film – however, the promos focused a lot on the sexy angle, which Sunny seems to be making a conscious effort to stay away from. The actress doesn’t want to position herself only as ‘sexy’ within this industry, since she already has a career as an adult film star.

4. Smriti Irani

The favourite bahu of all times, Tulsi aka Smriti Irani had walked out of ‘Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ in 2007 post a tiff with Ekta. She was replaced by Gautami Kapoor but TRPs dropped drastically and Ekta was forced to convince Smriti back to the show. Smriti re-joined the show in 2008 and this caught a lot of media attention. Not only this, the actress-turned-politician was asked to play a dancing girl in an episode of Ekta’s TV show ‘Ek Thi Naayika’. Given her political role, Smriti allegedly refused. As a result, the makers had to change the script and Sakshi Tanwar was requested to play the part instead. Smriti and Ekta’s relationship has had its newsworthy moments.

5. Rajeev Khandelwal

One of the very popular Indian TV stars, Rajeev Khandelwal had shot to fame with Balaji Telefilm’s ‘Kahin To Hoga’ and had no looking back ever since. However, Rajeev said that he didn’t need Ekta for his success and what followed was an ugly fight. An irked Ekta also went out in the media and said she would never work with him again. Things got worse when Rajeev said that he did not like Ekta’s TV programming. However, the duo have allegedly patched up now.

6. Pulkit Samrat

In 2006, Pulkit Samrat, played the role of Lakshya in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. In 2007, due to injury he face difficulties and he left the show. In 2008, Pulkit has filed a case against Balaji Telefilms for the non-payment of dues and for not allowing him to take up other projects from other production houses. Later, when Palkit started working in films, the relationship between them gets normal.

7. Kangana Ranaut

Kangna was conspicuous by her absence at the Shootout at Wadala promotions and parties. This was a possible sign that all was not well between Kangna and Ekta. Kangna feels that despite being the only leading lady of the film, she was totally ignored. What annoyed her even more was that she was left out of the film’s posters too. But the two patched up when the actress attended Ekta’s Iftar party.
