Ekta Kapoor’s TV appearance - a special gift for TussharAugust 17th, 2008 - 2:57 pm ICT by IANS
By Subhash K. Jha
Mumbai, Aug 17 (IANS) Anything for my brother Tusshar, says Ekta Kapoor who made an exception for him by appearing on the Rakhi special of Zee TV’s music reality show “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa” to promote his forthcoming “C Kkompany”. So far Ekta has only produced TV software. She has never been on reality show before. The episode was shot Wednesday and telecast on Saturday.
“The things one has to do for one’s brother. But seriously ‘C Kkompany’ is an important film for Tusski. Normally I’d do nothing to promote our films. But this one is for my kid brother,” Ekta, who has also produced the film, told IANS
“When he (Tusshar) asked me to make an appearance in the film, I agreed. Then I made an exception and appeared on the reality show with him,” added Ekta.
As Ekta always says there’re only two men in the whole world - her father and brother - who can make her dance around their little finger or dance on television reality shows.
Apart from Ekta, papa Jeetendra also went all out to make sure that Tusshar’s in-house production “C Kkompany” is properly promoted. While Ekta appeared on “Sa Re Ga Ma Pa”, papa Jeetendra featured with Tusshar on Salman Khan’s game show “Dus Ka Dum”.
Aug 29 is important for Ekta as Tusshar’s “C Kkompany” is releasing and on the same day her cousin Abhishek Kapoor’s directorial debut “Rock On” is also opening.
“Tusshar has a release. My cousin Gattu (Abhishek Kapoor) has directed ‘Rock On!’ that too releases Aug 29 as Tusshar’s ‘C Kkompany’,” said.
Ekta says she will take Rakhi gift after the release of the films.
“Both my brothers will have to gift me something special for Raksha Bandhan. And the quality of the gift would depend on whose film is a bigger hit,” she said.
“C Kkompany” was earlier supposed to release Aug 22, but was postponed due to a heavy traffic of releases that Friday.
