Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming TV series, Ek Thhi Naayika, will do more than just bring eight television icons - Smriti Irani, Sakshi Tanwar, Aamna Shariff, Shweta Tiwari, Mouli Ganguly, Ankita Lokhande, Kritika Kamra and Pooja Gor — together.

It will also mark the producer’s acting debut. Ekta
has a cameo in the 16-episode series, which is being launched to promote her upcoming film, Ek Thi Daayan, co-produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Balaji Telefilms.
Nervous ahead of making her acting debut, Ekta says, “Don’t ever expect me to act because I will be bad at it. You might see a blink-and-miss-you’ll-miss-it cameo of me standing behind a tree. I don’t mind playing a tree. As long as I don’t have dialogue, I can stand in a scene.” Talking about her role, she says, “It’s a small one. I will take my cue from Vishalji. He’ll be experienced by then, as he too is making his TV debut in Ek Thhi Naayika.”
