This Padma Shri laureate spearheads the largest TV content producer in South Asia that churns out everything from soap operas, to reality shows and films.
Her homegrown OTT platform ALTBalaji was featured in the elite list of India’s 100 Most Admired Brands 2020 and in the past year alone Balaji Telefilms was responsible for creating over 800 hours of TV. It was only fitting then that she joins some of the most influential names in the world, who have left both a creative and commercial imprint in the media industry.
