Television's reigning queen Ekta Kapoor recently revealed that she was amazed with Salman Khan's chivalric act in "Dabanng 2", reported Press Trust of India

Ekta praising the Khan Brothers said, "I appreciate Salman and Arbaaz for their progressive thinking and incorporating the same in the film. Arbaaz very well utilised Salman's stardom to highlight the responsibilities a man towards his wife and society. There were four scenes in the film that really took me by surprise."

She even dissuaded the criticism on the item song "Fevicol Se" as unnecessary.

For Ekta, who has produced adult content movies to her credit like "Love, Sex Aur Dhoka", "Ragini MMS", "Kya Super Cool Hain Hum" and "The Dirty Picture", reiterated the sentiment of equality and respect for women saying, "When John Abraham goes shirtless nobody has a problem but when our actresses do that everyone wants to chop off that scene."

"Mentality of men in India is becoming a problem. Men do not feel any social responsibility. Our culture is stopping women everytime. The main idea behind making The Dirty Picture was to make people aware of women's sexuality."

Only recently, Ekta was accused of promoting witchcraft and demeaning women as witches in her film "Ek Thi Daayan".

"It was a horror film and I didn't promote any witchcraft in it. I even got a letter from National Commission of Women where to my surprise, I was charged for using the Nirbhaya issue during the promotion of the film. I used a bus which was titled 'The bus to hell' and they assumed I roped in the rape case to promote my film," she said
