It's all in the name for Ekta Sharma...

Ekta Sharma, the pretty actress who plays the parallel lead in Solhah Singaar and also seen in Kis Desh Mein Hain Meraa Dil is pretty amused by the mistaken identity that many have when it comes to her name...

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.”

Speaking about her character in the Sahara One show Solhah Singaar, Ekta says, “My character is similar to Kajol in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Two of my closest friends get married to each other. Despite that, I continue to be their best friend. Unfortunately, his wife suffers from brain tumour and she tries to bring us together.” Rumors are that her character will turn negative in the near future to which she quips, “My character might turn negative, I really don’t know though what will happen in the future.”

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!!!
