As soon as the news broke of former Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj's sudden death, along with prominent political figures Bollywood celebs too paid a tribute to her via their respective social media handles. TV czarina and film producer Ekta Kapoor too was one of the celebrities to join the league. On this unfortunate happening, Ekta remembered how Sushma Swaraj played a pivotal role in her early days of career and lessons she learnt from her.

Mentioning in her tweet, she spoke about the first award she received from the former minister, setting an example of how women should help one another to grow and flourish.
