MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) has roped in Indranil Chakravorty as the head of StudioNEXT, its independent production venture, who will be reporting to Danish Khan.

Chakravorty is an engineer from IIT Kharagpur and has completed his Post Graduate Diploma in Management from IIM, Lucknow. He has rich and wide experience of around 30 years, working with organisations across sectors, handling varied job functions across business verticals such as marketing and sales. His most recent stint was as the CEO of Big Synergy where over a period of eight years he spearheaded its expansion in different geographies while creating high impact properties.
