Shantonu Aditya, President, One Alliance, is slated to join Sahara One as Chief Executive Officer. In his new role, he will oversee the various ventures that are part of the Sahara One entertainment business.
Despite repeated attempts, SET India and Percept officials could not be contacted at the time of filing the story. Sony has so far not named the replacement but Anuj Gandhi, the present second in command, seems to be the favourite candidate. The sources close to the situation informed that Aditya is expected to join Sahara One soon.
In his new role, the present Sahara COOs -- Sandeep Bharagava for Motion Pictures, Purnendu Bose, Sahara One Television, along with Ashutosh, Business Head of the forthcoming channel Sahara One Filmi - will be reporting to Aditya. He had joined SET India in 2001 in Sony's distribution function.
