Being one of the founders of BizAsiaLive.com, I’ve seen the website grown into the industry’s first choice for media and entertainment news. To what started off as a hobby to a fully fledged business, BizAsiaLive.com has been a dream run for me. Together with the buzz of being in a fast paced breaking news environment, along with the joy covering a mixture of media industry and Bollywood stories, is what drives me each day on building on the success of the BizAsiaLive.com brand. Having an amazing set of dedicated writers that share the same ethos, makes our vision easier and stronger of keeping BizAsiaLive.com right on top when it comes to media and entertainment stories.

Bollywood has always been and always will be a passion for me. When I started reviewing Bollywood films for BBC Asian Network in 2009, I didn’t think it’d lead me to a website like BizAsiaLive.com. Having been Showbiz Editor since the showbiz component launched in 2012, I can’t help but look back with absolute pride at how far the brand and the website has come. I’ve always wanted to be a part of a website born and bred in the UK, giving a British feel to stories, events, reviews and the like. With BizAsiaLive.com, I am able to do exactly that while also making sure we report in real-time no matter the different time-zone between us and India. Our award-winning journey has been incredible and I’ve always believed that it’s a team effort. Without a strong and passionate team who have a common goal of wanting to make BizAsia the best it can possibly be combined with a thirst for fast and accurate reporting, our brand would not be where it is today. I very much look forward to continuing this journey with the same infectious enthusiasm and unwavering dedication that I started with – with the best people by my side!

I’m thrilled to be part of this award-winning outlet. BizAsia has been a dream from when I was growing up and to see the website grow over the years makes me think that we’re doing the right things. My interest and passion in media makes writing for BizAsia an enjoyable and fun experience. The wonderful team ethic here makes the site what it is today. My philosophy is the way a team plays as a whole determines its success and we have a whole team to help each other. My passion alongside the team’s passion will ensure continued success for many years.
THE PASSIONATE BIZASIA TEAM
BizAsia has correspondents based around the world, with a strong core team based in the UK. The team is led by Senior Editor Amrita Tanna, who joined the website in 2010. The team prides itself on the passion it brings to delivering up-to-date news in an informative, unbiased and timely fashion. The team often provides readers with exclusive live updates from events in real-time, when events (press meets, film festivals, etc) are taking place in the UK. As well as keeping the readers informed on the website itself, the BizAsia team are also keen to engage on all social media platforms.
My voracious appetite for all things desi, filmi and literary make this space my natural home at BizAsia.
I am someone who loves the sound of his own voice and now have the platform of the fantastic BizAsia to love to the look of my words!
I have always wanted to get into writing to bring out my creative side some more and also to challenge myself to try something different.

We work together in bringing readers closer to their favorite celebrities, films, music, and more, and I’m proud that I can be a part of this inseparable connection.
Writing for BizAsia is a great cover for my unhealthy obsession with Indian film and TV.
BizAsia is a place I have really been able to put my passion into practice. Being able to write about the Indian Film Industry became a very thrilling experience where I was able to combine my passion for the Indian Film Industry…
