In an ambitious marketing initiative, Ekta Kapoor will promote her upcoming venture Ek Thi Daayan, through a serial on Life OK channel, Ek Thhi Naayika.
This show will not just bring eight television icons (Smriti Irani, Sakshi Tanwar, Aamna Shariff, Shweta Tiwari, Mouli Ganguly, Ankita Lokhande, Kritika Kamra and Pooja Gor) together on the small screen but will also mark the acting debut of producers Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj. Ekta and Vishal will both do short cameos in an episode each.
Talking about making her acting debut, nervous Ekta says, "Don't ever expect me to act because I will be bad at it. You might see a blink-and-miss cameo of me standing behind a tree. I don't mind playing a tree. As long as I don't have dialogue, I can stand in a scene." Talking about her role, she says, "It's a small one. I will take my cue from Vishalji. He'll be experienced by then, as he too is making his TV debut in Ek Thhi Naayika."
Ekta Kapoor and Vishal Bhardwaj launched the first look of the TV show Ek Thhi Naayika at a press conference and they also launched a song from the film, Ek Thi Dayaan that will be used in the TV show.
