After a stint of one and a half years at BBC Worldwide, Nachiket Pantvaidya has decided to call it a day at the organisation. Pantvaidya is believed to be headed to Balaji Telefilms as its CEO. Industry sources inform that Pantvaidya is already meeting with the various companies that Balaji is creating content for, but would completely move to the company later this month.
