When Ekta Kapoor was asked about her first ‘heartbreak’
MUMBAI: Ekta Kapoor’s digital platform ALTBalaji has been creating waves in the industry with its unique series. The latest web show that is all set to captivate viewers’ hearts is the much awaited Broken, but Beautiful.
The romantic drama stars heartthrob Vikrant Massey, Harleen Sethi, Simran Kaur, and Jitin Gulati, among many others.
Along with a great story and cast, the series has a beautiful musical feel to it. It has three soul-stirring songs by the most celebrated musicians from Bollywood: Shreya Ghoshal, Dev Negi, Papon and Miss Pooja, Arijit Singh, and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya.
At a recently held musical launch, Ekta Kapoor was also present along with the entire star cast.
Ekta praised lead actor Vikrant and shared, ‘This is my third outing with Vikrant. The first actor who I thought will be a star was Rajkummar Rao, and now I think the second is Vikrant Massey. I have a feeling that we will see Vikrant grow so much and make me feel proud.’
We questioned her on experiencing heartbreak since the show is also based on the theme. She shared, ‘Yes, I have had a loss of self-esteem. After being successful in certain sections of my life, I felt unsuccessful, broken, and low in confidence. When someone goes away from your life and you realize you are not good enough, you eventually start loving yourself. This process that we all have faced has become the narrative of the show.’
Broken revolves around two individuals with broken hearts, who find each other and realize that sometimes, to fix a broken heart, you need pieces of another broken heart.
