Divine blessings for 'The Dirty Picture'
Reportedly, Ekta Kapoor will pray at four religious shrines for the success of her next film
The superstitious Ekta Kapoor is leaving no stone unturned in making sure her next project The Dirty Picture tastes success at the Box office. The producer will be visiting not one, but four shrines in different parts of the country to seek divine intervention.
An insider at Kapoor's production house tells us that Ekta will be visiting the shrines between November 15 and 28. In the meanwhile director Milan Luthria, Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Tusshar Kapoor will be promoting the film.
According to the source, "First, she will head to Ajmer Sharif, and a day after returning from there, she will go to the Kali Ghat temple in Kolkata. Since Guwahati is closer from there, she will head to Kamakhya Devi temple before returning to Mumbai. At last, Ekta will go to Tiruparti Balaji."
"It's not only ironical, but also the exact opposite in terms of the context of the movie's subject," conceded our source.
Although she has denied being superstitious, Ekta has steadfastly maintained that she belongs to a religious family and it's only normal for them to pray to the deities before starting a new venture. A devotee of Lord Balaji, she always flies down to Tirupati before the release of a new project.
