Ekta Kapoor Apologizes After Mob Vandalizes Her House For Show ‘Virgin Bhasskar 2’ Using Ahilyabai’s Name For Hostel
India has become really intolerant. People have decided to take everything in their own hands without letting the judiciary take its time to decide. The case of Rhea Chakraborty is a prime example of this and now we have yet another example of such intolerance taking place with Ekta Kapoor. People were apparently pissed that AltBalaji’s show Virgin Bhasskar 2 showed the name of a great personality like Ahilya for making a hostel.

As reported by ETimes, a mob of 40 to 50 people vandalized Ekta Kapoor’s bungalow in Mumbai’s Juhu on Tuesday. While there was no extensive damage to the property, the lights near the main gate were damaged and glass shattered. Now, Ekta Kapoor has issued an apology for hurting the sentiments of people.
Taking to her social media, Ekta wrote, “It has just been brought to my notice that there is a scene in an ALTBalaji show ‘Virgin Bhasskar 2’, where a hostel named ‘Ahilyabai’, has been depicted, which has offended a certain section of society. The scene that is being pointed towards was never meant to be an act of disrespect, with only a first name being used as the name of the hostel, with no surname mentioned.”
She added, “Yet, the said scene has been promptly removed by the creative directors of the show. A name has been used which in no way insinuates disrespect to any specific individual, let alone an iconic leader.” Ekta concluded by saying, “To put it on record, neither am I involved in this series nor do I creatively oversee the show. However, I would like to tender an apology on behalf of the team for unintentionally hurting sentiments. We have the highest regard for the rich legacy of our Maratha leaders.” Ekta Kapoor Apologizes After Mob Vandalizes Her House For Show ‘Virgin Bhasskar 2’ Using Ahilyabai’s Name For Hostel.
