Ekta and Tusshar Kapoor are veteran actor Jeetendra and Shobha Kapoor’s children. Tusshar Kapoor, who is an actor, decided to be a single parent via surrogacy and welcomed his son Laksshya in 2016. At that time, he had told news agency IANS that: “Initially my parents were a little bit apprehensive whether I should announce the child to be one born through IVF and surrogacy or not,” but added that: “Everybody in the country has been very accepting. That was a bit surprise for me because I thought there would be diverse views, some kind of ‘oohs and ahas’ about it, all kinds of opinion. But nothing of that sort happened. Especially the media has been so supportive of Laksshya and my choice of having a family in this manner.”
Ekta Kapoor recently released the second season of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 with Erica Fernandes, Parth Samthaan and Hina Khan in lead roles. Apart from Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, she is also busy with the production of several web-series through AltBalaji, a branch of Balaji Telefilms, which focuses on short films and web-series.
