Uday Sodhi, business head of SonyLIV has decided to move on. He was involved with building up the digital business of Sony Pictures Networks (SPN) for almost five years.
Sodhi will now pursue "his entrepreneurial passion in the start-up space," said a company statement.
During his stint, Sodhi was responsible for the introduction of its subscription model, SonyLIV’s relaunch and the international launch of SonyLIV subscriptions, among others.
Post Sodhi's departure, the mantle of SonyLIV will be shouldered by Danish Khan. This will be in addition to Khan’s responsibilities as business head of Sony Entertainment Television (SET) and Studio NEXT.
In a career spanning over two decades, Khan has managed teams across marketing and programming having worked with Sony MAX, SET and Star Plus. He has also been instrumental in launching and nurturing the Studio NEXT business, with the ambition of making SPN a content leader in the M&E industry.
Khan and Sodhi will work on a transition plan over the next month, in consultation and partnership with relevant stakeholders. Sodhi’s last working day at SPN will be 15 November 2019.
