After over 27 long years at T-Series, Vinod Bhanushali has resigned as the President – Global Media, Marketing, Publishing, and Music Acquisition. Over the last 27 years, he has been the backbone, the pillar, and the catalyst of change at T Series. He has led the marketing for over 1000 films and helped in creating and building the world’s biggest YouTube Channel with 19 crore subscribers.
Vinod Bhanushali has now decided to pursue his entrepreneurial dreams and is setting up a boutique content company that will aim at churning out new-age content.
Talking about the same, Vinod Bhanushali says—
Having literally started my career at T-Series, it’s an emotional moment for me as I leave the company. Whatever I know about music and films, I have learnt it all during my sole long innings in this company. I’ll forever be obliged to my mentor, Shri Gulshan Kumar Ji (my saab) and Bhushan Kumar. Saab, for giving me a platform at T-Series and directing me to perform and grow from strength to strength along with the company, and Bhushan Kumar for leading the company and backing me after saabs untimely departure. But, with every goodbye comes a new beginning.
I’ve always worked like an entrepreneur, taking all decisions which were good for business, growth of the company and also for the people who work there. And BK (Bhushan Kumar) supported all my decisions. I’m excited to start something of my own, which I will announce very soon.
For the unversed, Bhanushali kicked off his career as a clearing and forwarding agent at the Mumbai Customs Docks, before moving to the entertainment industry by joining Sahara Studios as an associate junior worker.
He met the late Gulshan Kumar in November 1994 which became a turning point in his life, when he joined T-Series.
