It’s revamping time again at SET India. The network has effected some key senior level changes beginning with the appointment of Sandiip Sikcand, former Creative Head of Balaji Telefilms, as Chief Creative Director of Sony Entertainment Television, the flagship channel of the network.

I am sure he will contribute in the process of driving the creative vision of our flagship channel and take it to new heights. Sandiip’s appointment comes at a time when the network has taken up several challenges, and we are sure, with an illustrious career behind him, Sandiip will bring in fresh perspective and creative excellence to the channel.”
