In an expanded role, Pathak will oversee and be responsible for the development of the entire local film portfolio across Hindi, Tamil and regional languages in addition to managing her role as head of creative and development where her responsibility was to lead the focus on developing scripts, assembling projects and building relationships with talent.

Fox Star Studios CEO Vijay Singh said, “Rucha is a talented and strategic creative resource with an exceptional career having worked on a range of big and small films across directors and talent. I am hugely excited about Rucha taking on this important role at FSS.”
