“It is due to my lack of patience that I am not married: Ekta Kapoor revealed this in a sensational interview for a column. The Queen of Indian Television celebrated her 45th birthday this year and still remains single. Ekta Kapoor’s serials have dominated the primetime slots in Indian television for many years and made her a sort of a icon. Most of her daily soaps revolved around marriage dramas, newlyweds, and family conflicts. But the lady herself, in real life, has chosen to remain unmarried.
It seems that she does not believe in the concept of marriage and prefers to remain celibate. In an interview, Ekta was asked as to why she hasn’t tied the knot, and when she would be doing it. Ekta hilariously replied, “After two or three years of Salman Khan’s wedding.” In yet another interview, she gave an elusive revelation that the reason why she wasn’t married was because of a condition put by her father. She said that her father Jeetendra told her that she has t choose between work and married life.
Ekta chose work, as it was what mattered the most to her. She also revealed that many of her friends got married but are now single and that she had seen many divorces throughout her life. “The biggest side-effect of marriage is that it makes people highly impatient. And I think it is due to my lack of patience that I am not married. You have to work on patience and pretense if you want a happy marriage.
Earlier last year, Ekta confirmed becoming a mother via surrogacy after the rumors had already spread around the internet. She named her son ‘RAvie’, after her father and veteran Jeetendra, whose real name is Ravi Kapoor. Sources said that she was keenly, involved in the entire process, and took constant updates about the mother and the baby’s health from her doctor. Interestingly, her brother Tusshar Kapoor also chose to remain single. He too became a father in 2016 through surrogacy, and named his son ‘Laksshya’.
In the same interview, Ekta had also claimed that it irritates her to constantly answer the questions of her marriage. Ekta’s doting dad had once said in an interview that he would want his daughter to get married, but she was probably afraid of taking the plunge because of so many unhappy marriages around her. Well, Ekta made a successful career as a producer and a director and seems to be quite committed to it. Both siblings, Ekta and Tusshar, are living the life of a single mom and a single dad, and seem to be very happy and satisfied with their choices.
