Controversies of Ekta Kapoor
In 2007, Smriti Irani made an exit from Ekta's serial "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" after a clash with Ekta. However, she was later brought back to the serial in 2008 due to fall in the ratings of the show.
Actor Pulkit Samrat who made an exit from the serial "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" had some payment issues with Ekta. He filled a case against Balaji Telefilms for not clearing his pending payments and also not allowing him to work on some other projects.
A protest was carried out by the Rajput Kshatriya Akhil Bharatiya Chatariya Sabha against the TV serial "Jodha Akbar" as they thought that false facts were being presented by Ekta in her serial.
Kapoor is often criticised for her dressing style as she flaunts clothes which are either uncomfortable or not appreciated by the people.
Ekta is also criticised for the nudity clause in her contract. she has added the clause to prevent actors backing out from doing any intimate scene or provocative dialogue in the script.
She also had a feud with Rajeev Khandelwal. Khandelwal who came into the limelight with Ekta's serial "Kahiin Toh Hoga" openly said that he does not need Ekta to become big. The fight worsened when Rajeev made a negative remark on Ekta's TV programming. However, they patched up after some time.
After the rumours of the film Drishyam's resemblance to the Japanese Novel 'The Devotion of Suspect X, Kapoor sent a legal notice to the makers of Drishyam claiming the ownership of its copyrights. This gave rise to many controversies.
