NYSE listed Bollywood studio Eros International has announced the appointment of Ajit Thakur as CEO to spearhead the company’s motion pictures production division, Trinity Pictures.
Ajit has joined the leadership team at Eros and will lead Trinity Pictures’ endeavor to invest in developing intellectual property in-house.
Speaking on the development, Jyoti Deshpande, Group CEO, Eros International said, “We are excited about taking a big creative initiative with Trinity and warmly welcome Ajit to join the Eros family to drive this initiative with his wealth of experience and successful track record. While our acquisition and co-production model is all about scale, portfolio and market share, the Trinity label will be all about quality, success rate and building franchises with lasting value which perfectly complements our overall content strategy.
