Producer Ekta Kapoor has shared a major throwback video of former actress Smriti Irani from the time when she had participated in Miss India!
Producer Ekta Kapoor and the former actress Smriti Irani go a long way back. They had worked together for the daily soap Kyunkii…Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu. The show had made Irani a household name.
While the former actress is a minister now, still the two of them continue to be BFFs. Ekta has now shared a throwback video of Smriti from the year 1998. The short clip shows the 21 year old Smriti introducing herself as she participated in the Miss Indian contest. She went on to talk about adventure sports and her education. Also, she added about her interest in politics as she said that she holds an interest in the people who govern our country.
Ekta shared the video on social media appreciating her friend. She wrote, “Appreciation Post for my friend Smriti Irani who started off not winning Miss India but went on to become a household name. This is for people who think that success comes easy…it is tough, it is hard but it comes to all those who work hard. Smriti became a household name, today is a minister. Her whole persona has changed into a powerful yet humble politician. But when she started off, she was a meek, shy, simple girl who had walked into Balaji…and we knew her smile would win hearts.”
She went on to talk about the helping nature of Irani as she added, “Recently, a colleague of hers, who hasn’t worked with her, called her up for help, she immediately helped that person. That shows, even today she maintains relations with people who were working with her once. This humility and this attachment to her roots, makes her a fantastic person. So proud of you my friend! @smritiiraniofficial.”
