The actress, who is known for her role as Sahiba in "Rab Se Sohna Isshq", got good comments from the judges for her performance in the 'Family Special' round, which she dedicated to her sister, but due to lack of votes she was in the bottom three contestants with her choreographer Tushar Kalia.
Followed by the elimination of actor-comedian Suresh Menon, former Indian cricketer Krishnamachari Srikkanth and actress Meghna Malik, Ekta was the fourth celebrity contestant to get eliminated from the show.
The other two contestants who were in the bottom three with Ekta were actors Siddharth Shukla and Aarti Chabaria.
This week saw some great performances by the contestants using some props that were assigned to them.
While the episode saw filmmaker Karan Johar grooving to the beats of "Radha" from "Student Of The Year", even actress Madhuri Dixit and choreographer Remo D'Souza danced on "Pyaar ki yeh kahani" from the film "Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd"
There was also a change in the choreographer alignment for actress Shweta Tiwari. Shweta was first seen with choreographer Sushant Pujari. Sushant cannot be a part of the show due to an injury. Savio Barnes, who was earlier partnered with actress Meghna Malik, has come back on the show as his replacement.
The remaining contestants now include actors Drashti Dhami, Shweta Tiwari, Karanvir Bohra, Siddharth Shukla, Aarti Chabaria along with singer Shaan, actress-dancer Lauren Gottlieb and "India's Got Talent" winners Sonali and Sumant.
The Colors' show is judged by actress Madhuri Dixit, filmmaker Karan Johar and choreographer Remo D'Souza.
