The public, who had appreciated Ekta’s serials, are now a little fed up of the same melodrama. The same public was seen holding placards and wearing white t-shirts with imprints of Badlo Hindi Serials!, shouting slogans like “gali gali mein shor hai, saas bahu bor hai”, “kahaani ghar ghar ki, ab hui puraani”. The crowd seemed to be very unhappy with Ekta producing so many saas bahu dramas and is demanding that she stops making them.
We contacted Nibedita Basu, Balaji’s Creative Head to confirm the news she said, “I have absolutely no idea about any morcha taking place before the office. In fact I am standing outside the office right now and there is no commotion here.” Well, it may be that Nibedita missed the protest, but sources reveal that there was a huge gathering with cops present to handle the situation.
It looks like Ekta has to descend from her throne as the ruling queen of Indian Television, seeing that her followers are getting a little bored with the monotonous dramas. We’ll just have to wait and see how Ekta reacts to this.
