Here’s why Ekta Kapoor producing Pagglait is a pleasant surprise

Ekta Kapoor has been producing movies and television serials for decades together and her company additionally has a digital app called ALTBalaji where viewers can stream Balaji-produced shows. Now, coming to why Ekta Kapoor producing a movie like Pagglait is a pleasant surprise; it is because most of the time, her shows are stupid, cheesy and full of unrealistic twists and turns. Yet, they somehow gain a lot of TRP, even record-breaking at times. Her shows like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Gharr Kii and Kumkum Bhagya are some of the prime examples. Viewers have also claimed most of her films as an adult-only watch as sometimes the scenes tend to get too bold, Lootera being an exception.

Pagglait, on the other hand, is a sweet comedy-drama that has something substantial to offer its viewers and that is pretty much the opposite that we expect from Balaji shows and movies. Pagglait starring Sanya Malhotra, Sayani Gupta, Ashutosh Rana and Sheeba Chaddha is co-produced by Guneet Monga, Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor and directed by Umesh Bist. The film is now streaming on Netflix.
