Media baron Rupert Murdoch has described Prime Minister Narendra Modi as the “best leader with best policies since (India’s) independence”.

Murdoch took to Twitter to express his views about the meeting.

Star India is on course to meet its $500 million EBIDTA target by 2018 according to the latest comments by parent company 21st Century Fox’s Chief Financial Officer, John Nallen. Speaking at the 2015 Media, Communication & Entertainment Conference in Beverly Hills California he said that he was fully confident of the target being achieved by the company set for 2018. 

Morgan Stanley values Star TV at $11.2 billion. In a report, Morgan Stanley estimated the fair market value of STAR TV on the basis of rising ad revenue from India and said the firm contributed 11.3 per cent to the overall fair market value of its American parent. This comes amid slowing ad revenue for the media giant from developed markets.
