Electronic Music influence in India
Rajeev Masand, one of the very few entertainment journalists in the country to have had two eponymous film shows – Masand Ki Pasand (on Star News) and Rajeev Masand Ki Pasand (currently on IBN7) – which have helped to redefine the rules of how a TV film critic connects with the audience. Masand has been covering the Indian entertainment industry for the last 16 years, starting reporting at the age of 16 for The Times of India. He rose fast, and milestones along the way include being assistant editor at The Indian Express, special correspondent and film critic at Star News, and entertainment editor and film critic at CNN-IBN.
