Jindal looks forward to his bollywood flick, denies rumours

Vijay Jindal CEO of Karma Network Limited and head of the Marketing Advisory Committee of Doordarshan, has taken time off from Doordarshan to promote his maiden film venture, 'Haasil'. A former head honcho of Zee Telefilms, Jindal has produced the Rs. 5 crore film in a joint venture with Zee Telefilms. A romantic thriller with campus background, featuring Jimmy Shergil, Hrishita Bhatt and Ashutosh Rana among others, 'Haasil' is slated for December release. Jindal has struck a deal with Times Music, selling the music rights of the film on royalty basis.

Jindal is in spotlight not just for his film but also for other reasons. The reports of his joining Times of India and Hindujas have been making rounds of the media. "A section of the press has gone ahead and declared that I have already joined Hindujas. But these are all rumors. As far as Times of India is concerned, I continue to be associated with it as honorary advisor".

But Jindal is more agitated about reports of his company Karma Network promoting a Hindi Business News Channel with Videocon. "The reports appearing in a section of the press, linking me with the launch of a Hindi Business News Channel by Videocon Group are not just totally unfounded but grossly mischievous. These stories have been circulated to capitalise on my brand equity. Also it is the handiwork of vested interests in satellite channels to disrupt my relationship with Doordarshan. In view of this, I have already given in writing to Doordarshan DG, S Y Quraishi that there is not even an iota of truth in the press reports. Neither do I know of any plans of Videocon's proposed business news channel nor am I involved with it", he clarifies.

Jindal declares categorically that after the release of his film, he would like to concentrate on Doordarshan. And it's not before next year that he could give a thought to whether he would join some organisation or start his own venture.
