Multi Screen Media’s (Sony Entertainment Television) CEO in India has quit after nearly 14-years at the helm.

Kunal Dasgupta’s shock decision was announced today by Sony Pictures Television International’s (SPTI) president – international networks Andy Kaplan.

Multi Screen Media’s board chairman Man Jit Singh has taken over as interim CEO. He will lead the search for a new CEO.

Dasgupta was instrumental in building a clutch of channels for Multi Screen Media including a hybrid movie, cricket and events channel in MAX. Multi Screen Media also acquired SAB and has positioned it as a second Hindi general entertainment channel to flank Sony TV.
