Now, Nandan is excited to be back in ENIL and is looking forward to successfully leading his team to achieve dominant leadership in this highly competitive business.
Nandan had this to say about his move back to Mirchi “This is more than a mere home-coming for me. I was fortunate to be a part of the original team that built the radio business in the country in the first decade of this century.
