As producer Ekta Kapoor turned 44 on Friday, her friend Union Minister Smriti Irani penned a heartfelt note on social media thanking her for helping her through her turbulent phases.
Smriti Irani, Minister of Women and Child Development and Textiles, wrote: "You brighten our lives with your smile, you strengthen our resolve with your support no matter what battles lie ahead, your belief that time will heal all wounds and do justice helped me sail through many turbulent phases, your conversations with God... there are many ways for us in the Irani family to describe you but words won't be enough. Happy Birthday Ekta, rockstar masi, anchor, friend."
Both of them share a close bond ever since they worked together on Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, in which Irani had played the lead role of Tulsi Virani.
Just last month, they visited the Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Mumbai together, and Ekta lauded her friend for walking a stretch of 14 km barefoot.
Apart from Irani, Ekta was wished on her birthday by her brother Tusshar, and her friends in the industry.
Tusshar posted a photograph of himself along with Ekta, and wrote: "Happy birthday Sis! May the good forces of nature align in your favour, now and forever!"
Actress Anita Hassanandani said that this year is extra special for Ekta as she turns "extra responsible, extra settled, extra happy, extra focused, extra hardworking (as always) and extra sexy (wonder how)".
Ekta has a four-month-old son Ravie, whom she had via surrogacy.
Actress Mouni Roy said Ekta has a "heart of gold". She called Ekta her "mentor, guide and her reason to come to Mumbai".
