Ekta Sharma, who currently plays a parallel lead in Solhah Singaarr shares her name with daily soap czarina Ekta Kapoor, and is quite amused when she receives calls from struggling actors asking for jobs. She says, “At times I find it very funny when I receive calls from people who mistake me for Ekta Kapoor. It’s quite amusing when they send me messages wishing me on women’s day or send birthday wishes on Ekta Kapoor’s birthday.”
Ekta has played both negative and positive roles in the past, so which shade does she prefer playing more? Ekta replies, “As an actor, I have to enact the different shades of life in my roles. I think I will learn a lot more only if I experiment with my roles. For instance, I am playing a cameo role in Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil and my character is again negative there. I try to con the lead girl Heer to get married to my abnormal brother just to gain rights to the property.”
Well, a famous name or not, the young lass has definitely managed to create a name for herself in the industry!!!
