Sharma will be reporting to Chief Operating Officer, Sahara One Motion Pictures, Sandeep Bhargava. Expressing his views on Sharma’s appointment, Bhargava said, “I am delighted to welcome Sharang to Sahara One Motion Pictures. He brings in rich experience of 13 years in sales and marketing, of which the last four years have been devoted to driving distribution of movies nationally.
