He is neither a film star, nor a telly star, he is neither into sports, nor into politics, nor a reality show winner, he is not just any celebrity who flashes on TV screen every other minute...

Who is he? Who am I talking about... 

I am talking about the Man , with his astute business acumen, who is the reason for STAR India's turnaround. He is the ONE behind the STAR, to bring it to the apex of the GRP Charts. 

He is the ONE behind "Rishta Wahi, Soch Nayi" .  He is the ONE to bring the term SOCIAL Television into existence, by reviving and presenting, the content of  television with social outlook...He is the man behind the scenes... 

His incredible visionary thoughts, his mission, his views, his beliefs, his convictions, the urge and need of creative responsibility reinforced, a change in the content of programming on Indian TV. He is also referred as Media Badshah in Television space, 

Now to the Man himself, let us all, put our hands together and wish Mr. Uday Shankar, a very Happy Birthday !!!!!
 

Happy Birthday Udayji !!!!!
 


         
     

Uday Shankar

CEO, STAR INDIA



  Uday Shankar. 

To Uday Shankar, goes the credit of turning around Star Plus, the Hindi general entertainment channel of Star India, the broadcast company owned by Rupert Murdoch. Shankar gained his reputation as an astute television head with the launch of Aaj Tak in 2000, as he steered the Hindi news channel to the top spot in the ratings charts, and it was his success there that took him to Star News in 2004. He took over as CEO of Star India in 2007 at a time when the two big stalwarts of Star India 'Peter Mukherjea and Sameer Nair had quit the broadcast company. With the entry of Viacom 18's Colors in 2008, the former badshah of general entertainment saw difficult times as the upstart wrested away the top slot. Among his first moves was the decision to scrap long-running shows from the Balaji Telefilms stable, which had helped Star Plus hold on to the top slot for nine years, but were now a spent force. Shankar also emphasised the need for differentiated content, out of the box thinking and taking risks, and his stand was vindicated when Star Plus won back the top slot in 2009. Earlier this year, Shankar also oversaw Star India and long-time rival Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd's distribution arms form a joint venture to take on cable operators and raise their share of subscription revenue.

Happy B'Day Uday Shankar Ji..Tongue

He is one example of a good person having a good business acumen. Was he not a reporter before he switched jobs :) 

It is very difficult to take an entertainment channel to the top very easily. Remember NDTV? Hats off to Udi and a very happy B"DaySmile
