MUMBAI: Soap queen Ekta Kapoor has been named Young Global Leader 2006 by the Forum of Young Global Leaders, which is an affiliate of the World Economic Forum.

Kapoor is one of the 40 Asians chosen to become the Young Global Leaders (YGL) 2006, joining 175 leading executives, public figures and intellectuals as a part of a global community now including 410 leaders from all regions and stakeholder groups.

The 2006 class of Young Global Leaders includes over 60 business leaders, more than 30 government leaders, and dozens of scholars, media and non-governmental organisation leaders, who come from countries across the globe.

Kapoor will join the community representing 90 countries that includes Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Star Group CEO Michelle Guthrie, Georgia president Mikheli Saakashvili, Civicus: World Alliance for Citizen Participation secretary-general and CEO Kumi Naidoo and Singer Daniela Mercury.

Kapoor, who started working on production at age 19 has created more than 50 soap operas like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Hum Paanch, Kkusum on leading Indian networks.

The Young Global Leaders will meet as a community at their Annual Summit in Vancouver from 9 - 12 June 2006, when they will engage together in the 2020 Initiative.
