The channels that he will take charge of are Star World, Star World HD, Star World Premiere HD, FX, FX HD, Star Movies, Star Movies HD, Star Movies Action and Star Movies Select HD.

Kutty joined the company as VP - research & on-air in 2005 and was then promoted to EVP of distribution in January 2009. He was made the head of distribution in April 2015.
