Ekta Kapoor, who describes Smriti Irani as her "soul sister", marked the actress-turned-politician's 20th wedding anniversary with a major throwback. Ekta Kapoor's post is actually a blast from the past, featuring Smriti Irani and her husband Zubin Irani - he reportedly fell in love with Smriti during her modelling days, following which they got married in 2001. "Happy anniversary, love birds," Ekta Kapoor wrote for the anniversary couple. In the comments section, Smriti Irani responded with a friendly version of a thank you: "Thanchuuu," she wrote and dropped a few red hearts. For the uninitiated, Ekta Kapoor and Smriti Irani go a long way - she made her acting debut in a lead role with Ekta Kapoor's iconic TV show Kyunki... Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. The show premiered a year before Smriti Irani got married to Zubin Irani.
