“’HALF GIRLFRIEND’ IS THE ‘NAAGIN’ OF MY FILMS” : SAYS EKTA KAPOOR

 She’s the original czarina of television, whose serials redefined the way Indians watched TV. However, her foray into films was seen with cynicism — ‘dekhte hain kya karti hai’. While her tryst with the box office has been interspersed with hits and misses over the years, some of her last big-screen ventures didn’t exactly replicate the success of her small-screen outings. ‘Half Girlfriend’ (‘HG’), her first release this year, has given the much-needed boost to her company (Balaji Motion Pictures), but Ekta Kapoor asserts that she’s not planning big ventures. In an exclusive chat with BT, she says that she will only make movies on strong subjects and focus more on producing digital content for her mobile app, which was launched last month. She said,” It had a good beginning and maintained well on Monday and Tuesday as well. Anyone in my place would be ecstatic. I had earlier produced ‘Ek Villain’ (2014), which was also directed by Mohit (Suri), so I knew that his films connect well with the masses. There is a section of audience that loves melodrama. Having said that, you can never tell how a film will open. It’s the first time in the past year-and-a-half that distributors have called up saying that my film is running to packed houses. “ The Times  of  India : 25th. May,17
