Kulmeet Makkar will continue to manage the affairs of the Film & Television Producers Guild of India Ltd as its CEO.

Bhatt said "I have imbibed a lot from Shri Ramesh Sippy over the last two years. In particular, Shri Sippy‘s insight in taking several crucial decisions for Guild was amazing and will act as a source of inspiration to me. It is a great privilege to lead a prestigious entertainment trade body such as the Guild and I will work to the best of my capabilities and energies and strive for the interests of the Guild and the entertainment industry. I seek the support of all the Council and Guild members in our objective to aggressively pursue and resolve the problems of the industry."

Sippy added, "During my tenure over the course of the last two years, the Guild has taken up several issues of the entertainment industry and though some of the matters have not been fully resolved, there is no doubt about the genuineness of our efforts in trying to resolve these problems and I am thankful to all my team members for their support and co-operation. I will continue to provide my wholehearted support to the Guild whenever my services are required. I am sure that the next management team will carry on with their efforts to resolve these significant industry matters. I wish them all the very best for their journey."
