Television as career choice

Media and television is what excites me and being a creative person I could not think of any other media to let it out.

Current Television scenario

We are doing well and the shows on Television are now more interactive as the quality of our shows and our budgets have increased. I see a bright future.

Five years from now

I see myself heading a channel or a production house as a creative head. I have a very wide experience in this field (12 years!!!) and I feel five years from now I will be ready to take on any challenge that I am offered.


Watching movies, hiking and watching TV.
