The 42-year-old producer, known for her saas-bahu soap operas, said she has tried to present stories that show men and women as equals.
"TV has had a lot of progressive and some regressive shows, but there are some issues that resonate with some part of India. It won't work if it is all regressive, women won't like to see watching themselves (being put) down," Ekta said.
The producer said scripts of her shows could be "melodramatic" but not regressive.
"Scripts could be melodramatic, filmy, (with) high-octane drama but they are not regressive. We have a show called 'Shakti' about the third gender. This is a long-running show about a woman who could not understand what sexuality she belongs to, no films have discussed the third gender."
