People were already tripping over the cringeworthy trailers of upcoming ‘porn-coms’ like Mastizaade and Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3, and now Ekta Kapoor just made matters worse by adding her two cents on one of the movies produced under her own banner.
Talking about the recently-released song from her upcoming movie, Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3, this is what Ekta Kapoor revealed to a national daily:

Folks on Twitter pranced at this opportunity to drill some sense into Ekta and here’s how the uproar unfolded:
