Ekta Kapoor celebrated her 44th birthday on Friday.

As producer Ekta Kapoor turned 44 on Friday, her friend Union Minister Smriti Irani penned a note on social media thanking her for helping her through her turbulent phases.

Irani, Minister of Women and Child Development and Textiles, wrote: “You brighten our lives with your smile, you strengthen our resolve with your support no matter what battles lie ahead, your belief that time will heal all wounds and do justice helped me sail through many turbulent phases, your conversations with God... there are many ways for us in the Irani family to describe you but words won’t be enough. Happy Birthday Ekta, rockstar masi, anchor, friend.”


Both of them share a close bond ever since they worked together on Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, in which Irani had played the lead role of Tulsi Virani. Just last month, they visited the Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Mumbai together, and Ekta lauded her friend for walking a stretch of 14 km barefoot. Ekta has a four-month-old son Ravie, whom she had via surrogacy.

Apart from Irani, Ekta was wished on her birthday by her brother Tusshar, and her friends in the industry. Tusshar posted a photograph of himself along with Ekta, and wrote: “Happy birthday Sis! May the good forces of nature align in your favour, now and forever!”


Actor Hina Khan also shared a picture with the caption, “Candid but real.. she only knows how to make people smile.. Shine on @ektaravikapoor Happy Birthday.” Ekta also thanked her saying, “Thank youuu for the lovely wishes Hina... and you keep shininggg...!!” 

Actor Anita Hassanandani said that this year is extra special for Ekta as she turns “extra responsible, extra settled, extra happy, extra focussed, extra hardworking (as always) and extra sexy (wonder how)”.


Actress Mouni Roy said Ekta has a “heart of gold”. She called Ekta her “mentor, guide and her reason to come to Mumbai”.


Actor Amol Parashar wished Ekta, and said she inspires him with her “immense conviction towards anything” she does professionally and personally. “Gratitude for always showing faith in my work through ‘Home’ and ‘Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare’,” he said.

Actor Arjun Bijlani wrote: “Happy birthday Ekta Kapoor. Wishing you lots of good health.”
