BBC Worldwide India announces top shuffles in production business

BBC Worldwide India has announced two top shuffles in its production business in India. Soniya Kulkarni, who currently holds the creative head position has also been tasked with the job of business development. Kulkarni, in her new role as Creative and Business Head, Productions, India, will look at acquiring business partnerships while continuing to oversee the productions and creative teams.

Deepali Handa, the current Head of Commercial and Production (Non-Fiction) has now been promoted to overall Commercial Head for Productions, India. She will, however, continue to oversee BBC India’s non-fiction production and production accounts, as well as operational performance. Handa joined BBC Worldwide India’s Mumbai desk as Executive Producer in July 2009.

Kulkarni and Handa will report to Myleeta Aga, SVP and GM, South & South East Asia.

BBC local languages launch

Realizing the importance of penetrating the regional news segment, BBC Worldwide launched news channels in 4 Indian languages (Gujarati, Marathi, Telugu and Punjabi), which was being rolled out gradually since November last year. With this, the broadcaster is available in 40 global languages, including English, Korean and 5 African languages. According to a Nieman Lab report last year, the broadcasting company plans to create 157 new roles in Delhi in India and expand its bureau. The British company says that this expansion will be made possible using the funding from the British government which was announced last November.
