Ekta Kapoor is famously known as TV czarina for her hold on TV shows. Recently, her web series, Virgin Bhasskar, she made headlines. The web series created controversies. Many people started to protest against the web series. Protesters pelt stones at Ekta Kapoor’s house in Mumbai on September 8.
A mob of 40-50 people gathered in front of her bungalow and threw stones. The vandalisation caused her vast property loss. The protest was regarding a scene from web series Virgin Bhasskar 2. The web series portrays the sex racket ran by a hostel. The hostel named after an honourable Maratha empire, Ahilyabai Holkar.
Bhushansingh Raje Holkar, a progeny of Ahilyabai Holkar, expressed his disappointment at the use of his progenitor named. He wrote a letter to the production house. Mr Holkar demanded an apology through his letter.
Ekta Kapoor Reaction On The Situation
Ekta Kapoor took social media to reply to the letter. She apologised through a post.
She wrote: “It has just been brought to my notice that there is a scene in an ALTBalaji show ‘Virgin Bhasskar 2’, where a hostel named ‘Ahilyabai’, has been depicted, which has offended a certain section of society. The scene that is being pointed towards never meant to be an act of disrespect, with only a first name being used as the name of the hostel, with no surname mentioned. Yet, the said scene has been promptly removed by the creative directors of the show. A name has been used which in no way insinuates disrespect to any specific individual, let alone an iconic leader. To put it on record, neither am I involved in this series nor do I creatively oversee the show. However, I would like to tender an apology on behalf of the team for unintentionally hurting sentiments. We have the highest regard for the rich legacy of our Maratha leaders.”
