Mumbai: The Hollywood Reporter (THR) is an authoritative and preeminent entertainment publication with a focus on film, television, and entertainment, offering in-depth reporting, analysis, and thought-provoking reviews across its award-winning weekly magazine and dynamic website. Known for its access to the American entertainment industry, it is considered the definitive voice among industry leaders and pop culture fans.
RPSG Lifestyle Media chairperson Avarna Jain outlined the unique approach THR India plans to take. “Hollywood is home to one of the world’s oldest film industries and is the genesis for the multitude of local names that filmmaking communities enjoy all over the world,” she said. “The Hollywood Reporter India will be the first Indian publication that will look at the Indian entertainment industry as a whole. It will celebrate cinematic creativity across languages, regions and platforms, including OTT, digital and theatre. Hollywood may be the oldest, but India is the world’s biggest filmmaking industry and THR India will celebrate that.”
"This partnership signifies our continued commitment to fostering global connections and celebrating the culture, vibrancy, and robust entertainment business in India,” said The Hollywood Reporter executive vice president and co-publisher Elisabeth Rabishaw.
“We’re excited to embark on this journey with the THR India team and bring our editorial voice to the process as we showcase and amplify India's rich and compelling entertainment industry on an international stage,” said The Hollywood Reporter co-editor-in-chief Nekesa Mumbi Moody.
Currently, The Hollywood Reporter has editions in the US, Italy and Japan.
The appointment process for the editor-in-chief and other senior positions is currently underway. The date of launch will be announced shortly.
