Our source close to Ekta says, “Ekta just met Smriti with an open mind and thankfully for both of them it worked out very well. Ekta was not even sure that Smriti would agree to be part of the show again but since the professional issues between them were sorted out, Smriti returned to play Tulsi. However, with Smriti’s entry, Gautami has hardly anything to do in the show. Ekta understood this and immediately got her creative team to develop a concept entirely for Gautami. The concept is ready and soon a new show will be launched for Gautami.”
Ekta Kapoor is known to go out of her way to accommodate her stars who stick with her through testing times. The latest to be rewarded is Gautami Kapoor who came in as Tulsi in Ekta’s number one show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. After the return of Smriti Irani in the show, Ekta wanted to compensate Gautami, and so the new show.
Clueless about Ekta’s plan, Gautami says, “Honestly, you should ask Ekta about it as I have no clue what she has in mind for me. I won’t deny the fact that even I have heard that she is planning a show for me and a lot of people have asked me but Ekta has not told me anything so far.”
Gautami accepts that Ekta has, in the past, taken care of actors’ interests. She says, “Ekta is a large hearted person and she has always gone out of her way for Ronit, Hiten and Pallavi. I won’t be surprised if she offers me a show soon. I started off for a small part for 15-20 days but I have been on the show for almost 11 months. Television is a medium which changes on a daily basis. I will talk about the show when I am told by Ekta. Kyunkiâ€¦ has been a great comeback for me on television and I am sure Ekta has planned something substantial for me.”
