Ekta Kapoor is the queen of the small screen, with her hit shows on almost every channel she rules the TV industry. She has also tried her hand in film production and she has been successful there too! With films like Udta Punjab, The Dirty Picture, Ragini MMS and others she is all set to rule the Bollywood too! But we have never seen Ekta Kapoor working with the Khans of Bollywood. With her new wave cinema, is she not willing to work with Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan?

Well, she spoke about why she has not worked with them yet in a conversation with PTI, she said, “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”.

She added, “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.”

Her idea about the competition is very clear. She says it’s all about winning and learning. She said, “I don’t like to live a delusional life, which is an easy thing. We all have dreams but we have to understand where the dream becomes delusional.”

She also has her eyes locked in on the regional film market. She said, “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.”

Well she definitely is going strong in her direction!
