Ekta Kapoor has been stopped by strangers in the past. But that was restricted to her office premises. Aspiring actors and actresses swarmed around the television tsarina’s studio gates, waiting for her to step out and spot talent in them.
But on Thursday afternoon, when the newly anointed woman of the year (by a magazine, following her recent success) went for her daily jog, she was in for a surprise. A group of college goers stopped Ekta on her tracks, not to ask for a role in her upcoming production, but to sing and dance.
An eyewitness told Mirror, “Ekta has been jogging regularly every afternoon near her Juhu home. She obviously attracts a lot of attention. But she is always sweet to the fans. She stops to wave at them often. On Thursday too, she stepped out with four security guards. Soon, she was stopped by a group of young people.”
Ekta was a little taken aback when the group of youngsters started singing and dancing for her. “There was this young boy who appeared to be college student. He started singing Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya for Ekta in a rather animated way,” said the eyewitness.
Initially a bit shocked at the sudden song and dance sequence, Ekta soon recovered and heard the guy out. “She spoke to the group of youngsters for a while. They discussed the song.
One of them even mentioned that this song from the upcoming film Kya Superkool Hai Hum is a favourite with her boyfriend. Ekta was quite amused. After a few minutes, she continued with her jog,” added the eyewitness.
When we called Ekta to ask her about this strange encounter, she chose not to comment.
