Name of Ekta Kapoor's first show was...

                Hum Paanch

My guess again. According to my research her first show was Mano Ya Na Mano whic is not an option here. Her first major success was Hum Paanch.

Here is some interesting ifo. on Ekta and how she became successful.
Worth reading:

Ekta Kapoor was said to be the face and brain of Balaji Telefilms Limited (BTL) , and was almost solely responsible for the phenomenal success of most of BTL's serials.

According to Ekta, her childhood was "materially easy but emotionally difficult." As a child she was extremely obese and suffered from low self esteem. She was a poor student and was happy to get by with the minimum pass marks. Even as a child she was an avid television watcher and spent most of her free time glued to the TV. She felt guilty about letting her parents down, but was unable to do anything about it.

The turning point in Ekta Kapoor's life came in the early 1990s when a non resident Indian, Ketan Somayya, approached her father and requested him to make some software for the channel he wanted to start. Ekta's father asked her to take up the responsibility of making the software. Consequently, Ekta Kapoor made six pilots, of about three episodes each, at a cost of about Rs 0.5 million. The proposed channel, however, did not fare well and had to be sold to Zee TV. Not wanting to waste her efforts, Ekta Kapoor started looking for other buyers for her pilots.

She was not successful in finding buyers for the first pilots, but her father came to her rescue and gave her more money to make more pilots. BTL was set up in 1994 by her father. Mano Ya Na Mano, (Believe It or Not) BTL's first serial was telecast in 1995.

This was followed by Dhun Dhamaka (Musical Explosion), a music based show aired on Doordarshan, which was moderately successful. The first major success came with Hum Paanch (We Five), a comic sitcom about 5 girls and their harassed parents, which ran for 5 years on Zee TV.....

Pam where is the largest theatre in India? Just curious. You must have researched thoroughly by now and have an answer.
I am pretty sure it is not Pune - I grew up there and even now I don't think there is that big a theatre in Pune.
I would have guessed Delhi or Bangalore but that is not an option. So it is probably Chennai or Mumbai!
