I am looking forward to some great experience with Mahuaa too.”

Commenting on Thakkar’s appointment, Nikhil Seth said, “The role we have envisaged for him is that of National Head for Mahuaa’s upcoming channels. He would be a great asset to the sales team and will help us take the proposed channels to new heights of success.”

Seth further said that Thakkar’s expertise in BTL would also help the group in a big way.

Thakkar brings in 18 years of experience in the media industry. He had joined MCCS as Regional Manager in January 2005. He had also been instrumental in launching Star Majha. Besides, he had also worked as all India Head - Events and Activation for the channels of STAR.
