Tarun Mehra, who was Business Head of Zee TV since January 2006, has been shifted to its new division. Currently, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd COO Nitin Vaidya and Programming Head Ajay Bhalwankar are looking after Zee TV. Vaidya has confirmed the development, but refused to divulge any other information about the new division.
It may be noted here that recently, Pearl Shahi, who was Creative Head, had quit Zee TV.
Prior to Zee TV, Mehra had spent around two years with Shaw Wallace as GM, and before that, he had spent significant years with L’Oreal, Taj and Parle. The most significant was his seven-and-a-half-year stint with L’Oreal, where he started off as a Product Manager and winded up as Marketing Manager. At Taj, Mehra’s designation was GM.
When contacted, Mehra was not available for comments.
