TV czarina Ekta Kapoor is in seventh heaven following the stupendous success of her production "The Dirty Picture". She says producing TV shows makes her feel at home, while making films is almost like a vacation.

"It's (TV is) home ground. You might want to travel the world...you might say, that you love Paris, but Mumbai will always be Mumbai for you. So for me if you ask, television is Mumbai and films are like Paris," the 36-year-old producer said at the launch of her new serial "Kya Huaa Tera Vaada".

"It's (films) a great vacation, but I will come back to television," she added.

Ekta, daughter of yesteryears star Jeetendra, has produced films like "Love Sex aur Dhokha", "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai", "Shor In The City" and "Ragini MMS". She insists films are an experiment for her, and help her understand TV better.

"Whatever I am today, is because of television. So all the emotional connect is with television. I am experimenting with films and enjoying the freshness of a film but it helps me understand television better. Whatever art of storytelling I have, is because of television," said Ekta, who is also co-producing "Shootout at Wadala" with Sanjay Gupta.

The New Year is a busy time for her production house with films like "Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum", "Rock The Shaadi" and "Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai 2" lined up for release.

WHEN EKTA IS INVOLVED IN HER TV SERIALS THEY ARE GREAT TO WATCH BUT ONCE SHE HANDS THE REINS OVER TO CREATIVES TEAM THE SHOWS START TO GO DOWNHILL!
