After almost seven years as the President of Reliance Entertainment, Rajesh Sawhney has put in his papers. Sawhney confirmed the development to MediaNama, saying that he will now focus primarily on his investment activities: he is the founder of the SuperAngels of India, and through this venture, has investments in Autowale, Biosense and Chhotu. Apart from these, he has personally invested in six companies: viki, Serial Innovations, Brandidea, Speakwell, mobstac, dexl. He is also the co-host and curator of the Founders Forum in India. Sawhney's move from Reliance Entertainment has been rumored for a while: we've heard rumors often, ever since he began focusing on investment activities, and we've checked with him on his plans at least thrice in the last two years. He joined the company in October 2005, and led the rollout of Reliance Entertainment's media and digital media rollout, including the launch of digital properties like Zapak, BigFlix, BigAdda, as well as the movies business (Reliance Big Pictures), Radio (Big FM), and TV broadcasting. Prior to joining Reliance Entertainment, Sawhney was with the Times of India group for six years, as a part of the startup team. He was COO at TIL before he moved to Reliance Entertainment. *Disclosure: Times Internet Ltd is an advertiser with MediaNama
