Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI) will be losing the man who has been championing the growth of SAB, its popular family comedy entertainment channel.

SAB business head Anooj Kapoor has decided to move on to pursue independent ventures. His last working day at SPNI will be tomorrow.

Said SPNI CEO NP Singh, “Anooj has played a key role in the curation of SAB as a family humour channel. His contribution has been instrumental in creating a strong viewer base for SAB. As he moves on to embrace a new future, I wish him the best in all his endeavours.”

Kapoor has been associated with SAB TV since 2007. During his tenure, he launched several hit shows such as ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’, ‘F.I.R.’, ‘Balveer’, ‘Lapataganj’, ‘Left Right Left’ and ‘Chidiya Ghar’.

Before joining SAB TV, he was with UTV Television as head of its comedy cell in 2004. Starting his career as a copywriter with Lintas, he also wrote and directed several sitcoms.
