Hungama's Neeraj Roy elected Vice Chairman of Mobile Entertainment Forum – Asia

Neeraj Roy, MD and CEO, Hungama, has been elected Vice Chairman of the Mobile Entertainment Forum – Asia. He has also been adjudged as one of the 50 Most Influential People in Mobile Entertainment globally for the third consecutive year.

Mobile Entertainment Forum is a global association with chapters across Europe, Asia and the Americas, and has representation across all stakeholders in the telecom, Internet, entertainment and media industries.

Commenting on his election, Roy said, “I am extremely thankful to my fellow peers from around the world who have coveted the honour to me for the third year. Mobile and digital entertainment is an integral part of the larger entertainment and media economies, and in India, it is at an inflection point.”

An official note from Hungama stated that Roy had been selected as an endorsement of the efforts he and his company, Hungama Mobile, had undertaken over the past few years in taking Bollywood on to mobile and digital screens around the world.

“We have worked very closely with the Indian film and entertainment industry towards helping them monetise their assets in digital formats across all three screens – mobile, Internet and IPTV,” Roy further said.

Other prominent names in the same list include Paul Jacobs (Qualcomm), Steve Jobs (Apple), Dirk Wierzbitzki (Vodafone), and Rikko Sakaguchi (Sony Ericsson), among others.
