CASBAA honors Zee Entertainment’s Subhash Chandra

MUMBAI: The Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA) honored Zee Entertainment Enterprises chairman Subhash Chandra, with a special award for his Lifetime Contribution to the Asian Pay-TV industry.

CASBAA chairman Marcel Fenez said, "Subhash Chandra’s contribution has been critical to the extraordinary achievements of India’s pay-TV industry in the last 15 years. CASBAA and the industry applaud Mr. Chandra’s outstanding merits."

Chandra added, "The achievement is not my own. Many others have made this possible, most notably my old colleagues Ronnie Screwvala of UTV Software, Prannoy Roy, the chairman of NDTV and Raghav Bahl, who now leads Network 18 Group. Without teamwork, cooperation and investment from within India we’d never have had an industry that is able to contribute so much to India and the rest of Asia."
