“I am grateful to Sony for its belief and support as I chart a new producer path, beginning with the films I set up at the studio itself. We are excited about the slate of projects we have at Sony Pictures International Productions, India,” said Lada.

I am thrilled at this opportunity and can’t wait to reveal the things in store.”During his two-decade long career, Lada has held leadership positions in companies like India Today Group, Fox Star Studios, Disney India and Sony Pictures.
