MUMBAI: After his first directorial debut, Chillar Party, Leo Burnett’s chief creative officer (CCO) Nitesh Tiwari’s second film Bhootnath Returns, starring Amitabh Bachchan, will hit the screens in April, this year.
And it is after this that the man will return to the creative agency.
“I was supposed to join back in February and because of the film it got a little delayed,” says Tiwari rubbishing the various speculations about him not coming back to Leo Burnett.
“I will be back in April once the film releases,” says Tiwari.
Another rumour doing the rounds in the industry is that of Leo Burnett’s chief creative officer India subcontinent KV Sridhar (Pops) leaving the agency.
“I’m not going anywhere. It is all rubbish,” says Pops to indiantelevision.com. “If I stand for elections for Aam Aadmi Party, I will let people know,” he adds in humour.
In 2012, both Pops and Tiwari were handed over the additional roles of looking at the subcontinent and pan-India, respectively, with an aim to better and grow the agency.
