I believe that Paritosh is one of the astute creative minds of today who has clear roadmap in evolving a character or a relationship with his unique storytelling. Considering our long-term association and the fact that he has immense knowledge about several aspects of the media and the industry, we decided to consolidate his position in the network and rightfully use his expertise across our brands and properties.”

Painter added, “I am looking forward to this new opportunity that has come my way. I have had a great working experience with the company so far. I hope, with my inputs and expertise, I will able to take the brand to the next level.”
