Times Internet COO Rajesh Sawhney joining Reliance Entertainment

Rajesh Sawhney has resigned as COO, Times Internet Ltd, and is joining Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Enterprises as President, Reliance Entertainment. Sawhney was associated with Times Internet from the very beginning and was one of its founder members. He will be joining from middle of next month.

Speaking to exchange4media, Sawhney said, “I am thrilled to be part of Anil Ambani’s vision to drive entertainment on the mobile screen. He has ambitious plans in the entertainment business. I will be driving the growth in mobile, gaming and portal space.”

Commenting on the present media scenario, Sawhney said, “India is moving into an entertainment economy. The power of the consumer is shifting to the small screen from the big screen. We are witnessing Four Screen Paradigms – cinema, TV, PC and, most importantly, mobile. I think the coming decade will belong to the mobile screen as far as entertainment is concerned.”

When contacted, Mahendra Swarup, CEO, Times Internet Ltd, confirming Sawhney’s departure, said that the COO’s post was being done away with and “everybody earlier reporting to Rajesh will now report to me.”
