While fans and fellow celebrity figures are wishing TV producer Ekta Kapoor on her birthday with heartfelt messages and posts, the producer herself shared some exciting news on social media.
After thanking everyone for the birthday wishes she expressed regret for not being able to respond to every message for she happened to be in a low network area. Promising to get back and thank everyone, she shared news of a new show that will be streaming soon on ALT Balaji.
Inspired by true events and women who were responsible for making Mangalyaan (Mars-craft) or the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) successful, the show titled, Mission Over Mars will soon premiere at the streaming platform. Ekta shared a poster and a note on her official Twitter account.
In the poster, four iconic TV actresses can be seen. Mona Singh, Sakshi Tanwar, Nidhi Singh and Palomi Ghosh feature as the lead cast in the show. All four can be seen glaring into the sky with a rocket in the middle of the poster. The poster sets the mood of the upcoming show.
Ekta wrote: “Today on my birthday we launch the poster of our new show that we decided to make 2.5 years ago when I chanced upon this amazing story about women in Indian science. This show is on the women who sent the mission on Mars-partly fictional keeping in mind the sacrosanct nature of ISRO. This is by far one of the most inspirational stories oI have ever heard.”
“After millions of meetings with the ISRO and a certain amount of sacrosanct secrecy that they would like us to maintain, we are proud to present this part fiction part real story that is based on the humongous achievement of all the women behind Indian science. Overwhelmed to introduce this campaign and our 4 eclectic actors who will represent the 4 Indian women scientist. This show is our tribute to our unsung heroes,” she added.
Thankyou very much 4 all d birthday wishes 💐
