Ekta Kapoor: Crime stories are the next big thing!

Ekta Kapoor’s movies Shootout at Wadala and Once Upon a Time Again as well as her crime show Gumrah deal with crime

She started the trend of saas-bahu sagas on the small screen, but film and TV producer Ekta Kapoor believes that the next big thing on television is the crime genre. Her crime show is titled Gumrah – End of Innocence that airs on Star Plus and Channel V.“I did a crime team show called Gumrah and it’s doing pretty well because we did not even know that there is a lot of peer pressure which leads to young crime, we never knew these things existed,” the 37-year-old said at the launch of Piyush Jha’s book Mumbaistan on Thursday. “The way the audiences have received the show, it’s quite overwhelming. So, I think crime is going to be another very big space for television. Books will be converted into TV shows as much as they are converted to films because the audience is lapping up crime shows,” she added.

Ekta’s has already produced two hit crime films – Shootout at Lokhandwala and Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai. Her upcoming projects Shootout at Wadala and Once Upon a Time Again aslo deal with crime.

Asked if she thinks films are a reason behind the increasing number of crimes today, Ekta said, “The aspirational aspect of crime has always been discussed. But I don’t think crime has ever been so glamorous that people take to it because they see it in a movie. It’s always personal experiences that lead you to crime. But at the same time, yes, movies do glorify the bad guy till the end and it is something we have to take into consideration when we make a movie or a TV show. But like we have seen in recent years, at no point do you in any way decide that that is the reason for a crime. I think that is too much of an easy assumption.”
