Mumbai, April 4 (IANS) That Ekta Kapoor, the camera-shy czarina of the home medium, is all set to do her first acting role is not new. But very few know that it was her brother who convinced her to take it up.

Earlier, Tusshar had coaxed father Jeetendra out of retirement to play his son's dad in 'Kucch To Hai'. Sis Ekta was a harder nut to crack.<a href=Tusshar Kapoor" src="/bollywood/images/uploads/tushar_kapoor_int_big2.jpg" align="right" border="" hspace="5" vspace="5">

Tusshar told IANS: 'But Ekta couldn't say no to me. Besides, the role is tailormade for her. You see, she plays Ekta Kapoor in the film. And who else but Ekta Kapoor can play Ekta?'

'It's for our home production 'C Kompany'. We're doing this rib-tickling satire on the underworld featuring Anupam Kher, Rajpal Yadav and I. Mithun Chakraborty plays an underworld don,' added the doting brother affectionately.

'It's just a cameo. And it won't take up much of Ekta's time.'

Ekta laughs delightedly about her acting debut.

'I'm giving them some time this week to shoot my scenes. It's a small role and how could I say no to my brother? I don't turn him down for anything. My scenes are with Mithun Chakbraborty. So you can imagine how nervous I am,' said Ekta.

Donning different caps seems to be the order of the Friday.

While Ekta is gearing up for her acting debut, director Farhan Akhtar is currently facing the camera for the hardcore rock musical 'Rock On'. And last but not the least, Himesh Reshammiya is busy singing, acting and composing.
