Zoom TV’s Shailindra Kaul has been appointed as Senior Creative Director at Bindass, UTV-Astro’s youth entertainment and leisure brand. In his new role, Kaul will be responsible for creative services and on-air branding for Bindass. Brand Bindass will kickstart with a Hindi GEC, scheduled to launch in mid-2007.

Ramon Chibb, Vice President-Head of Content and Operations, Bindass, said, “We are happy to have Shailindra join our team. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge, experience and commercial thinking, which will hugely benefit the creative development of brand Bindass.”

Commenting on his new role, Kaul said, “The zest and energy expressed by the Bindass team is highly infectious and I am looking forward to being part of this livewire, 360-degree entertainment brand.”

Kaul has 17 years’ experience in the media and entertainment industry. Prior to this appointment Kaul was associated with Zoom TV where he was responsible for the look and feel of the channel.
