Ekta Kapoor posted a photo rooting for Union Minister Smriti Irani.

Producer Ekta Kapoor shared a good luck post for Union Minister Smriti Irani on the day of Lok Sabha elections 2019 results. Irani is in a close contest with Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Amethi.

“All eyes on #amethiwe r rooting for our aunt,” Ekta wrote with a photo of her son watching election results on TV. Irani also thanked Kapoor and replied with emojis.

Kapoor and Irani go a long way back. The TV and film producer had cast Irani as the lead of her hit TV show, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, back in 2000. While Irani left acting for politics, their friendship continues.
