The Times Group has announced the consolidation of Junglee Pictures and Times Studios Originals under a unified leadership, appointing Amrita Pandey as CEO of both businesses. 

The Times Group has focussed on building a strong domain in scripted content. While Junglee Pictures has already made a significant impact in feature film entertainment, Times Studios Originals had been set up to develop digital video content of relevance to all streaming platforms.

Pandey is an experienced movie industry professional and M&E leader, with a career spanning over 16 years at UTV and The Walt Disney Company. Across her career, she has managed the Studio P&L of the then largest Indian Studio (UTV, then Disney) and has been an integral part of creative and greenlighting decisions. She has set up and run the content distribution business for the company, managed theatrical marketing and distribution and built strong relationships within the creative community.

She has worked on over 200 movies across languages, including iconic films like Rang De Basanti, Jodhaa Akbar, Barfi, Life in a Metro, Rowdy Rathore, Oye Lucky Lucky Oye, No One Killed Jessica, Kai Po Che, Chennai Express, Kaminey, PK, Haider, ABCD, Dangal and many more. Her team set box office benchmarks not just in India but also in markets like China, North America and Korea.

Alongside her studio role, Pandey also led the content and channels distribution role for the South East Asia and India regions for Disney. She was responsible for driving digital and streaming service partnerships, including Disney’s first content deals in the region with Netflix, Amazon, Jio and Hotstar.
