In 2017, Hindi movie Dangal set a record in box office collections in China. It was also a big achievement for Amrita Pandey, then vice president, studios, Disney India. For Pandey, who previously served UTV in various movie business roles, Dangal joins a list of milestones that include movies such as PK, Rang De Basanti, Jodhaa Akbar, Raajneeti, and 2 States. As Walt Disney announced a deal to buy much of 21st Century Fox’s businesses, Pandey got a new role that would put her at the heart of the battle for digital viewership in India.
