The list of Padma Awards was recently declared and among the 118 names to have been conferred with Padma Shri this year was TV czarina Ekta Kapoor for her contribution to the entertainment industry. Padma Shri is the fourth highest civilian award in the country and there’s no doubt that the producer is completely overwhelmed after this news. This was quite evident in her official statement that she released on her social media in which she wrote that it is never ‘too soon’ to live out your dreams. Since the news, Ekta Kapoor has been flooded with wishes for the award from her friends and colleagues from the industry. Hina Khan, Mouni Roy, Rhea Kapoor, Anita Hassanandani and others also showered praises on Ekta Kapoor for her huge achievement and made their happiness known.
