I want SRK to perform at my wedding: Ekta

Ekta Kapoor confesses she's moody, likes the colour pink, almost snacked on a cockroach once and wants none other than King Khan to perform at her wedding. Wanna know more about the soap czarina? Catch her in a candid conversation with Veenu Singh.

India’s television queen for 17 years, Ekta began by producing Hum Paanch. But it was her over-the-top soap operas (the titles of all of which began with the letter K) that catapulted her into the big league. With her television ventures doing well, Ekta then turned to Bollywood, coming out with films like Kyo Ki… Main Jhooth Nahin Bolta and Kya Kool Hai Hum. These movies didn’t do very well, but now Ekta seems to have understood Bollywood. Movies like Love Sex Aur Dhoka, Once Upon A Time in Mumbai and the just released Ragini MMS have done extremely well.

One word that describes you best?

If a traffic constable hauled you up, what would you do?
I would just smile at him.

What makes you feel sexy?
My attitude.

The colour ‘pink’ for you is...
...Nostalgic as it was the colour of my bedroom when I was a child.

A place where you would like to be lost for a month?
You would expect me to name some exotic location, but actually, for me, that place is Pune. I just love it.

The weirdest thing that ever went into your mouth?
A fried cockroach that I was happily about to bite into by mistake. This was in Bali.

Share a secret with us... you can trust us, we’ll only print it!
I am scared of the dark and I never watch any film to the end.

You are late for work and all the roads are jammed. Choose a mode of transport: a cycle, a horse or a skateboard. Why?
None of these. I would rather jog. I love jogging.

Ekta Kapoor is scared of dark

Your first kiss was?
An experience.

The one law you would break if you could get away with it?
I wouldn’t pay my taxes.

Earth’s crowded and full of trash. Choose another planet.
I’ll go to Venus!

What makes your day?
Appreciation for my work.

What screws it up?
Bad work and laziness.

Love is...
...An illusion.

You get high on?

If you were the last person left on earth, what would you do?
I would have nothing to do – I love company. Can’t I have a few of my favourite people around?

Life in the fast food lane: choose your menu
My list will have only one thing on it: Pizzas! Especially the chicken barbeque pizza from indigo

If you could have a star perform at your wedding, who would it be and why?
Shah Rukh khan. I just love him.

Which superhero would you like to be and why?
I would like to be Catwoman. I love her character.
