Ekta Kapoor who is known to be Television Queen & Film Producer was asked if there is a Harvey Weinstein in Bollywood during the show 'The Town Hall'. And the Lady Producer didn't hesitate to say, 'Harvey Weinsteins exist in Bollywood, but there are equal number of Harvey Weinsteins on the other side of the story. There are powerful Producers who try to exploit the aspirants and Actors who use their sexuality to get work. Whenever an issue surfaces, Only the powerful will be blamed. A person who doesn't have power can't be the victim always'.

Citing an example, Ekta says: 'If an Actress hangs out with Producer at 2 am and seeks a job based on that after five days but the Producer doesn't entertain her saying he wants personal and professional things separate, Then who is the victim here? People always assume the powerful person took advantage of the budding Actor's situation and this many't be the truth always'.

Recently, Ekta Kapoor's Father Jeetendra was accused of sexually harassment by his cousin 47 years after the incident took place. Whereas, The Bollywood Veteran rubbished the allegations and termed it as a desperate attempt of jealous competitor to disturb his business activities.
