Ekta Kapoor, Joint Managing Director of Balaji Telefilms, has been the talk of the television industry for over two decades. Most of her shows are among the top 50 on TV.

Her company has also evolved from a pure play TV content provider into one that produces content for the big screen, the Internet and mobiles, too.

The past year has been particularly busy for her as she got back into movie production with a new company, ALT Entertainment, that looks at niche and distinct film content. Kapoor, 36, prefers not to talk about her personal life, but reveals that she is addicted to American television shows. She also admits she is a foodie and was born to eat.
