The production house is also in the process of associating with an online partner to further grow the brand.

A line comprising ethnic wear, mainly sarees and jewellery will be launched first, followed by Indo?-western trends and accessories in the near future.

Brand ?EK? is a natural culmination of the  significant legacy of over 20 years that Ekta  Kapoor has created in the world of entertainment and now she takes her business and passion forward with the launch of her brand via merchandising.

A foray into the fashion world is a first of its kind venture for Balaji Telefilms and the company will get a percentage of sales as royalty.
