Smriti Irani joined politics in the year 2003 and in 2014, she was inducted in Prime Minister Narendra Modi's union cabinet. She currently heads the Textile Ministry.
Meanwhile, Smriti Irani made a blockbuster debut on Instagram a few months ago, courtesy Ekta Kapoor. In her second post, Smriti Irani revealed that Ekta 'pestered' her to join the photo-sharing app. Her post featured Ekta Kapoor and colleague Sakshi Tanwar, who played Parvati in another top-rated show Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, produced by Ekta.
"Smriti came to my office last month. The whole office ran to meet her. As a friend, I hope her career goes really high because till the last day of her pregnancy she did shooting. Nobody knows this, but she shot on the day of her marriage. We made her work because she knew that the show won't go on air as nobody wanted to see Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi without Tulsi," Ekta Kapoor told IANS.
