Commenting on the initiative, Pawan Jailkhani, Chief Revenue Officer, 9X Media Pvt. Ltd. said, “In the recent past, we have been successful in creating branded content shows such as #Asktrack and The Sunday Flea Market. Both these shows received an overwhelming response from the consumers. We now want to take the branded content business to the next level with the launch of Audience – Brand Connect.

They are investing in the creation of innovative brand properties with better shelf lives. We are confident that Audience - Brand Connect will be beneficial to the advertisers and also keep our viewers entertained with innovative programming,” he further added.
