Former Sony Entertainment Television Asia Business Head Ajit Thakur has joined Star India.

Sources from Star India confirmed that Thakur will be the Business Head of one of Star۪s Hindi general entertainment channels.

Thakur left Sony TV in March this year after being with the company since July 2008. During his tenure at the network, he helped push the flagship channel to the number four position in India ratings.

After the exit of Nikhil Mirchandani, Star One is without any business head. Star One will be completely overhauled, sources said.
