“Ekta Kapoor, is going through a very successful stage of her career but unwanted controversies are bogging her down. The controversies surrounding Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, the recent controversy of Pearl V Puri where Ekta supported the actor who has been arrested under the POCSO act have brought negativity in her life. 2021 is going to be a crucial year in her life as some of the most awaited movies are coming out from her banner like Ek Villain 2, Goodbye. She should stay strong and do not let negativity affect her. She should stay away from the limelight for a few months till things don’t settle down,” says Bollywood astrologer Hirav Shah.
