          2012

          Best Entertainment Feature for Bollywood Blockbusters: Music Maestros - Madan Mohan

          • As part of CNN-IBN's Bollywood Blockbusters: Music Maestros series, I produced a two-part episode on music director Madan Mohan, where I spoke about his life and music. I put in a lot of effort by thoroughly researching on Madan Mohan, interviewing his son, Sanjeev Kohli, who provided me with some wonderful insights and anecdotes. I also wrote a one hour script and produced the show along with the right amb-ups and sound bytes. Fortunately for me, all the hard work paid off when the episode won in the 'Best Entertainment Feature' category at the NT Awards 2012. http://ranjanaeaswar.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/bollywood-blockbusters-music-maestros.html
