Yesterday, Ekta Kapoor took to her Instagram to share a video of her acceptance speech at the International Emmy Awards. She recalled her journey from starting her company in her dad Jeetendra’s garage, and also thanked him and her brother Tusshar Kapoor for babysitting her son Ravi. Karan Johar re-shared her speech on his Instagram story, and lauded her by writing, “Solid speech.”

In her speech, Ekta Kapoor said that she and her mom Shobha Kapoor started Balaji Telefilms in Jeetendra’s garage, and that for the first few years of her career, they were known as ‘lady producers’. “The irony is the world’s population is solely produced by women,” she said. She then went on to thank the men in her life- her dad Jeetendra, and her brother Tusshar Kapoor for babysitting her son Ravi.

“You make my home wholesome if not conventional. I’d like to thank our two boys, my son and my nephew – Laksshya and Ravi, our surrogate babies who taught me the toughest paths can sometimes lead you to magic. I’m a single mother,” she said.
Ekta Kapoor then dedicated the award to India, and said that she finds a reflection of herself in her nation. “You’ve been pulled, pushed, conquered, ruled and as you found your freedom, you found your voice,” she said.
