As per the video shared by Vikas, Ekta Kapoor, in her acceptance speech at the 51st International Emmy Awards , said, “I would like to thank my mother, who I started this company with from my dad’s garage. Thank you, Thank you India, because in you I find the reflection of me. You have been pulled, pushed, conquered, and ruled, and as you found your freedom you found your voice. A few decades later today we stand tall, not needing anyone’s validation as the fifth largest economy. This award is for you India, and all the Indians here. We are few, but we are enough. This is for your India; in your history, I find my stories, in your strength, I find my writ, to my motherland...”
The TV czarina also shared a video of the trophy on her official Instagram handle and wrote, “India I’m bringing home YOUR Emmy @iemmys,” with it. Many of her peers from the industry are showering her with all the love and admiration for her big victory. Many of her followers have also lined up to congratulate the Balaji head honcho.
