“Chingari creators are known for creating out-of-the-box videos. Saregama is a power bank of songs and offers a diverse slate of genres. Our creators can use this to their advantage and develop some fantastic content pieces," stated Chingari CEO and co-founder Sumit Ghosh.

“Our aim at Saregama is to make our rich music library be made available to the legions of music lovers from all over the world on as many platforms as possible.
