Kartik Chintamani quits Zee Telefilms as Network Programming Head

After about 10 months of joining Zee Telefilms in the then newly-created post of Network Programming Head, Kartik Chintamani has moved out. His stint with Zee culminated last week. Zee Network sources confirmed the development and added that at present no replacement has been sought for the post.

On being contacted, Chintamani didn’t offer any comments on where he is headed. Sources however further add, “He has moved on because he wanted to start something on his own.”

Even as Chintamani’s job mandate required him to provide content direction to the entire network, which comprises 25 channels, he was seen as being closely associated with flagship channel Zee TV’s ‘Kum Ya Zyaada’. In a recent interview, a senior Zee official explained that Chintamani’s role was more of a bouncing board for creative ideas and what would work or could be altered to work better.

As is known, each channel in the Zee Telefilms bouquet has its own content head working closely with the Business Head of the channel. At present, it doesn’t appear that Zee is in a hurry to replace Chintamani. A Network source stated, “We will look at filling the spot if we find the right person.”

Prior to joining Zee, Chintamani was with MTV for over three years; he quit the organisation in June 2005. Prior to that, he was with Sony for two years. No official comments were available at the time of filing the story.
