Shantonu Aditya bids adieu to Sahara One Media & Entertainment

After a stint of almost two years, Shantonu Aditya, CEO, Sahara One Media and Entertainment, has decided to part ways with the organisation. Seemanto Roy, who took charge of Sahara One in August 2006, and continues to look after the entire operations of Sahara One Media and Entertainment, said, “In the last 22 months, since June 2005, Shantonu has built a very successful business. He has decided to move on and we wish him all success.”

Commenting on his departure, Aditya said, “I am glad to have spent two valuable years at Sahara One where I’ve learnt a lot. My decision to leave the organisation is entirely personal and I wish continued success to Sahara One Media And Entertainment.”

In a restructuring of sorts, at the time of Aditya’s appointment in June 2005, Sahara One had divided its media and entertainment business into three business units – Sahara One Entertainment Television, Sahara One Motion Pictures, and Filmy. Aditya was looking after all the three units.

In August 2006, Sahara One’s management agreement with Percept had ceased and the promoters -- the Roy family -- took control of the entity with Seemanto Roy, the younger son of Sahara Chairman Subroto Roy, taking charge of the entire Sahara One Media and Entertainment operations and Aditya reporting to him. One of the first exits following this was that of Purnendu Bose who was the then COO of Sahara One Television.
