In her recent interview, Ekta Kapoor finally revealed the main reason why she doesn’t work with supertars like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan.
“It is not about the access to the stars. We have not made films with Salman Khan or Shah Rukh Khan because at this point if I have to spend half a year in planning a film with a big star, it would require certain effort. We have got into an eclectic mix of films. Access doesn’t always mean, you could have picked up a phone and called them. It is not that we are making a big star Rs 100 crore proposal.” Ekta Kapoor Said.
The maverick producer is also planning to enter in on the regional film market as well.
“I feel we have a huge local market. I want to grow with regional content but that would be three years later. I have done two shows - one is a Bengali and other is a South Indian show. I had a huge wing that made lot of South Indian shows, not many people know we had a south show called Kudumbam. I am a firm believer that as the content gets local there will be more identification.” Ekta Kapoor said.
