New Delhi, Sep 24 (IANS) Ekta Kapoor has caused quite a few eyebrows to be raised for her rather different take on the Mahabharata, but the television tsarina defends her interpretation saying no one has a copyright on the Indian epic.
"Thank god nobody has a copyright on the original story. I bow to Ved Vyas for the way he has written the Mahabharata but he is no more in the world to object to my show," Ekta told reporters.
Ekta has interpreted the epic in her own way. Going against the original storyline, she depicted the dramatic "Draupadi Cheerharan" scene in the very first episode of her show that airs on 9x entertainment channel.
