Ekta’s inspired by Shiney case !!!
Despite stiff opposition from all quarters including the parent channel, Ekta Kapoor is going ahead with her serial Betaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai, which is based on the Shiney Ahuja rape incident.
Vice President, Marketing, of the channel says, “We do have problems with some aspects of BDKTH but nothing that can’t be sorted out. It’s a serial that goes into the realistic space and we just need to cover our bases.”
Ekta says angrily, “I will pull out the serial but I won’t make any changes. BDKTH was born from my genuine concern about the lives of female househelps in Mumbai. What makes them vulnerable to sexual attack in a city that’s supposed to provide safety to women belonging to all sections of society?”
Ekta says she has done extensive research on the subject. “What I came to know shocked me. The Shiney Ahuja incident is not an isolated one. Men from the highest sections of society get sexually and emotionally attracted to their house help. I wanted to explore this fatal attraction.”
Ekta says she won’t let the channel come in the way of her creative freedom. “Ten years ago when I did Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, that was my reality. The sexual and emotional politics and dynamics of a large business family were real. Now the reality of the Indian middleclass interests me. I am not getting into headlines for quick bucks,” she says.<img src=http://www.orkut-scrap.net/img/Animated-Dolls/1.gif >
