Star TV is facing a new challenge, with three of its top executives putting in their papers to join former Star India chief executive officer Sameer Nair in his new venture with broadcasting company NDTV and filmmaker Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Nair resigned in January this year, around the same time as Peter Mukherjea, who was the CEO of the Star group.
Since then, Star India’s Shailja Kejriwal, senior creative director, and Gaurav Gandhi, vice-president, commercial and business planning, have also resigned – both of them have put in their papers in February. Another executive who may soon join Nair’s growing clan could be Manoj Vidwans, senior vice-president, Star India.
Nair is credited with masterminding Star TV’s revival in India with ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ and the family soaps of Balaji Telefilms.
