MUMBAI: Kranti Gada, Chief Operating Officer at Shemaroo Entertainment Limited, has been recognised as one of the young leaders at the recently concluded BW (Business World) Disrupt 40 under 40 ceremony. This award emerged to be a clear acknowledgment of Kranti’s path breaking efforts towards introduction and implementation of the digital eco-system at Shemaroo Entertainment.

Kranti’s successful journey with Shemaroo could be characterised as a spirited and innovative venture that has always kept the company ahead of the curve. She pioneered a new business outlook for Shemaroo by collaborating with new age media and bringing in revolutionary changes like tying up with telecom partners at a time when the industry was nascent. Under her guidance, the company’s USP of providing quality content was amplified over non-broadcast avenues like YouTube, DTH etc. Kranti Gada has been a visionary and a guiding light throughout her journey at Shemaroo.

Speaking on the occasion, Anurag Batra, Chairman & Editor-in-chief, Business World, said, “Kranti represents the entrepreneurial energy of young professionals and leaders who are truly breaking the glass ceiling and creating role models for others to follow”.

Commenting on the victory, Kranti Gada, Chief Operating Officer, Shemaroo Entertainment Limited, said, “It’s a true honour to be recognised for my efforts by a platform as prestigious as BW Disrupt 40 under 40, that scouts the innovative streak in businesses. Being a part of an ever- changing, fast-paced and dynamic industry like the entertainment industry, it is important to always have the constant support and involvement of the team. I thank my team for always being there and contributing to my personal growth and happiness.”

BW Disrupt 40 under 40, organised by BW Disrupt is an exclusive platform for entrepreneurs that closely monitors Indian corporate ecosystem and analyses the Business & Economy. This time the jury panel was headed by Mr. T. V. Mohandas Pai, Chairman, Manipal Global Education.
