Kareena Kapoor Khan receives a warm welcome from Ekta Kapoor, as she begins her journey as a producer ‘always believed that women have an equal play in the business and success of a film’ – Eagles Vine

‘Here’s to wishing Kareena Kapoor Khan the best on her journey as a producer…adding another feather to her already illustrious career!’ shares producer Ekta Kapoor as Kareena Kapoor Khan is all set to debut as a producer with a slick, edgy, new-age thriller. The actress has collaborated with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms for an untitled venture.

Speaking of which, Ekta took to her Instagram handle to pen an honest and heartwarming note on the challenges of being a female producer, while welcoming Bebo. Sharing a photo of herself with Kareena, the note read, “It’s with immense happiness, pride & excitement that I’d like to welcome @kareenakapoorkhan on board as a producer for our next.”

Heaping praises for the ‘Heroine’ actress, Ekta added, “Kareena has been an actor with a huge, admirable (almost envious) body of work… and while her male co-stars turned producers in due course, she’s finally joined the bandwagon now!”

She also added, “I’ve always believed that women have an equal part or play in the business and success of a film. With women front-lining big ticket films, it’s only right that they get a piece of the pie like their male-counterparts.”

Talking about her own journey as a producer, the actress shared, “28 years ago, when my mum and I started our production house, everyone thought my dad was ‘The Producer’ and that we worked for him… 🙇🏻‍♀️ We tried to tell people that while he’s a huge support system to us, WE are actually the producers here!”

On a closing note, Ekta said, “The notion of a ‘producer’ back then was strongly associated only with a man. Decades later, people have finally gotten around to accepting that a ‘producer’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘male’! It’s been a hard journey, but an encouraging & happy one! I’m so glad that today, we can empower each other like this!”
