Sharing the appreciation post, Ekta wrote, “Appreciation Post for my friend Smriti Irani who started off not winning Miss India but went on to become a household name. This is for people who think that success comes easy…it is tough, it is hard but it comes to all those who work hard. Smriti became a household name, today is a minister. Her whole persona has changed into a powerful yet humble politician. But when she started off, she was a meek, shy, simple girl who had walked into Balaji…and we knew her smile would win hearts.” Also Read - Bhag Jaldi Dilli Pagal: Minister Smriti Irani Remembers What Rishi Kapoor Told Her Before Her Oath-Taking
