MTV's Kartik Chintamani to join Zee as network programming head

MUMBAI: Former MTV Network India executive producer (production) and director Kartik Chintamani is all set to join Zee Telefilms as programming and creative head. Chintamani will be taking office on 1 August.

As network head of programming, Chitamani will be working closely with Zee Telefilms CEO Pradeep Guha. His job role will essentially be to provide programming and creative direction for the whole network.

Chintamani quit MTV a month ago.

This development was confirmed to by senior sources within Zee. When contacted, however, Chinatamani refused comment.

Chintamani's appointment means that the three key positions of network head of programming, ad sales and marketing have now been filled. Former Star India hand Joy Chakraborthy is executive vice president network sales while Suresh Balakrishnan (ex-Hindustan Times) is marketing head.

The sources said there were only a few more positions to be filled, which would complete the executive matrix at Zee for the near term.


Chintamani was with MTV for over three years and prior to that was with Sony for two years.
