Ekta Kapoor’s property in Mumbai was attacked today. A mob of 40-50 people apparently protested outside her bungalow in Juhu. It’s said that the mob threw stones at her house, even broke a few windows. The protest was allegedly regarding a scene from her web series Virgin Bhasskar 2, where a sex racket is being run from a hostel named after a noble sardar of the Maratha Empire, Ahilyabai Holkar.

Reportedly, a descendant of leader Ahilyabai Holkar had taken offense at the use of the name and had even written a letter to the production house. Bhushansingh Raje Holkar had demanded that the scene be deleted and an apology tendered.

Post which, Ekta took to social media with an apology yesterday. In her message online, she wrote, “It has just been brought to my notice that there is a scene in an ALTBalaji show ‘Virgin Bhasskar 2’, where a hostel named ‘Ahilyabai’, has been depicted, which has offended a certain section of society. The scene that is being pointed towards was never meant to be an act of disrespect, with only a first name being used as the name of the hostel, with no surname mentioned. Yet, the said scene has been promptly removed by the creative directors of the show. A name has been used which in no way insinuates disrespect to any specific individual, let alone an iconic leader. To put it on record, neither am I involved in this series nor do I creatively oversee the show. However, I would like to tender an apology on behalf of the team for unintentionally hurting sentiments. We have the highest regard for the rich legacy of our Maratha leaders.”
