While accepting the award, Kapoor said, “I cannot be taking Hall of Fame Award when I feel if I have just started. This journey, for me, has been interesting. But thank you all the actors, everyone who has been a part of my journey and who thank me and say these wonderful things, but guys, I have just started. I hope to come back 20 years later.”
Kapoor took the opportunity to also thank the Indian Television Academy, her family and friends for being a part of her journey. She took to her Instagram account as well to thank ITA for this award.
Ekta Kapoor turned to production at quite a young age. She produced her first show Padosan in 1995. At the turn of the century, she launched a series of ‘K’ lettered shows such as Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, and Kkusum to name a few, which went on to change the face of Indian television forever.
