Mumbai: Big Music head of content and A&R (Artiste and Repertoire) Rajeeta Hemwani has put in her papers, after a brief stint of nine months.

Prior to Big, Hemwani worked with Times Music for 10 years. Here also, she handled Artiste and Repertoire.

Confirming the development to Hemwani says, "I am currently serving my notice period in the company till the month of April. After this, I am looking at starting my venture and am currently building that up."

Hemwani’s new firm, she says, will look into getting international labels and artists to India, and the launch of new talent and international music sourcing for Indian producers.
