Have Ekta Kapoor and Anita Hassanandani patched up?

The Kavyanjali actor seems to be back in Ekta’s good books, as she has been roped in to star opposite Sunny Leone in Ragini MMS 2

Anita Hassanandani has been away from television for quite some time now and will be seen making a comeback with Ragini MMS 2 opposite Sunny Leone, and the reasons for that is none other than the television czarina Ekta Kapoor.

Ekta and Anita had a falling out for various reasons, one of them being Ekta’s growing closeness to her Kasamh Se star Prachi Desai. Ekta even cast Prachi in a plum role in her movie Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai, and Anita was relegated to the sidelines, content with doing smaller roles on television and building a career in films down South. But before this fallout, Anita was allegedly quite close to Ekta and her family, and they both shared a rather close bond. This is when Anita ruled the small screen and Ekta yet had to foray into producing movies. But the TV serials that Ekta made always had a special role for Anita. But once Prachi entered the scene, Anita was sidelined. And Ekta promoted Prachi with a renewed fervour, even saying that Prachi was like a family member! Yet, this relation too was short-lived as Prachi accused Ekta of not casting her in the films that the latter produced, namely Shor in the City, and Prachi was promptly shown the exit door.

And now it seems that Ekta has again got back with Anita, whom she had even rechristened Natasha earlier. Anita has been chosen for a plum role in Ragini MMS 2 opposite Sunny Leone. Well, good for Anita wethinks, as she gets yet another shot at Hindi movies. Also, Prachi had better watch out, since it’s not too good for an actor to be in the TV czarina’s bad books, as she is known to be vengeful! So let’s see now, how long Ekta maintains her relation with Anita, and hope another pretty young thing doesn’t attract Ekta’s roving eye. Wink wink!
