The filmmaker says eradicating piracy in industry will be his top priority
Producer Sajid Nadiadwala has become the youngest president of the Association of Motion Pictures & Television Programme Producers (AMPTPP). Nadiadwala was elected at the 21st annual general meeting held on Monday evening. He has succeeded veteran producer Ratan Jain.
Nadiadwala says he is all set to take up the challenge while trying to solve the issue of piracy in Bollywood at the earliest. He says, “I have to rise to the occasion. It is challenging for me to solve the long pending issues of service tax, etc but my prime focus will be to solve the issue of piracy as soon as possible.”
AMPTPP’ senior vice president Vikas Mohan says, “He is young blood and he brings a lot to the table. It is a very high-profile post especially since our association has all the active producers as its members and is known as the Lok Sabha of the film industry. The Guild on the other had is known as the Rajya Sabha of the industry.”
Vice President Ramesh Taurani says, “Sajid is the youngest producer to be the president. He is also very active so he knows the problems that we producers face.” Sajid was elected as the president by the 22-member committee, while JD Majethia is the co-chairman who will look into the domain of television producers.
