IPRMENTLAW collaborates with renowned Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahta’s ‘Film Information’

IPRMENTLAW is pleased to announce its collaboration with Komal Nahta’s trade magazine ‘Film Information’.

Mr. Komal Nahta is a renowned Bollywood trade analyst and publisher of Bollywood’s leading trade magazine “Film Information”. He is an anchor of the trade show ETC Bollywood Business on the TV channel ETC.

The edition of Film Information is published on a weekly basis every Saturday*. With effect from this week, Film Information would be having a section on the IPRMENT (IPR, Media and Entertainment) updates.

With respect to this collaboration, Mr. Nahta said “I am thrilled to be collaborating with Ms. Anushree Rauta. She will bring for our readers all legal news relating to the media and entertainment sectors in an unadulterated manner. Her writing style is so lucid and simple that our readers will love what we publish from her desk. I have absolutely no doubt that Ms. Rauta’s contributions will be loved by our readers and will add value to the magazine.”

IPRMENTLAW was started by me around three months ago as a knowledge sharing initiative in the IPR, Media and Entertainment space. There is a lot more to this industry than the glamour quotient which people see. With the help and blessings of like-minded individuals and visionaries like Mr. Nahta, my endeavor shall be to take this initiative to the next level and reach out to more minds who are concerned with this industry.
