Ekta Kapoor compares 'Avengers: Infinity War' crossover with ‘Maha Episode’ of her daily soaps

Marvel Cinematic Universe’s magnum opus 'Avengers: Infinity War' introduced one of the biggest crossovers onscreen with its release in 2018.

The film starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, and Tom Holland, among others, showed an epic amalgamation of standalone films like ‘Iron Man’, ‘Black Panther’, ‘Captain America’, ‘Spiderman’, ‘Doctor Strange’, ‘Thor’ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’.

Sharing a meme comparing the epic with her daily soaps, television Czarina Ekta Kapoor took to Instagram and shared an image featuring the ‘Maha Episode’ of two of her popular shows 'Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii' and 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'.

She simply captioned it as “FYI.”

Both the shows successfully ran on television for eight long years before going off-air.

'Kahaani' became so popular in Sri Lanka that it was dubbed in Sinhala language.

The serial revolves around a Marwari joint family, where Parvati Agarwalis an ideal daughter-in-law and Om Agarwal, essayed by Kiran Karmakar, the ideal son. The show also featured Ali Asgar in the pivotal role of Kamal Agarwal, and Anup Soni as Suyash Mehra. Shweta Kawatra became popular as Pallavi Agarwal, though the role was essayed with equal aplomb by Achint Kaur.

On the other hand, 'Kyunki' revolved around an ideal daughter-in-law Tulsi Virani, the daughter of a pandit, married to the grandson of rich business tycoon Govardhan Virani. The role of the protagonist Tulsi Virani was played by Smriti Irani.
