Sanjiv Sharma, Optimystix, Filmmaker

My Video with Sanjiv Sharma.  Sanjiv, erstwhile from O&M, started Optimystix in 2000, and as they say, the rest is history.

 A public school educated Advertising Film Maker teamed up with a writer from a small town called Limdi in Gujarat in the year 2000 to start Optimystix with the clear intention of creating world class Entertainment for TV Networks.

 The diversity of the founders is still the hallmark of the company. Optimystix has produced Hi End Shiny Floor entertainment like Indian Idol Season 1 to Papad Pol a Daily Drama Series aimed at predominantly Gujarati Audiences. In this video  Sanjiv shares his passion and what drives him.

Pradeep Guha, Founder/CEO of 9X Media (+playlist)

My video with Pradeep Guha where he talks about "Inging the Thing"- creating defining experiences to propel the brand. Having done what he has, he should know- credited with redefining the Times brand, creating Bombay Times, the turnaround of 9XM,  and crowning a bevy of beauty queens from Aishwarya to Priyanka- he has done it all. A rockstar!
Pradeep Guha is a stalwart in the field of media, advertising, marketing and branding. For over 35 years, he has been a pioneer of change and progress for the brands that he has been associated with. In the mid-70s, he was the President and Director of the Times Group. He was instrumental in building the Group’s flagship brand, The Times of India and magazines like Filmfare and Femina.
He is also on the board of various companies like Mukta Arts, Future Media, Whistling Woods International, Komli Media Inc., Vdopia Inc. and Amagi Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
