If Ekta Kapoor Covered News: Top Stories From 2015

Not that journalism isn’t scripted, biased or clickbaity nowadays, but have you ever imagined what news would be like if Ekta Kapoor covered it in her own style of storytelling. Well don’t bother now, we’ve done that for you.

Ekta Kapoor has a certain flair to the way she projects events in her shows. And because India is no less than a scripted drama, we thought it would be a good idea to look at news events from last year through the lens that is Balaji’s trademark style.

Of course, not to take away from all that insult coated in praise, the fact that Ekta Kapoor is the queen of television and although a lot of us will not agree with her ways, she has metaphorically enslaved a major chunk of non-working class. Her most loyal fans are housewives, retired professionals, old bored people, and lazy people who will just watch anything on television to defy reality.

Here are top stories from last year, the daily soap way:
