On September 17, 2012, the Governing Council of the Association of Motion Pictures and Television Program Producers (AMPTPP) unanimously elected producer Sajid Nadiadwala as its new President.

Mr Nadiadwala will now preside over the association as Chairperson and ex-officio of all the committees framed and working on different agendas. Says Rajat Sengupta, CEO, AMPTPP, on the new election, "The council members felt that it is the right time to elect a dynamic young leader like Sajid Nadiadwala, who has knowledge of world cinema, as its President. The governing council is sure that AMPTPP will achieve all its goals under Mr Nadiadwala's able leadership."

Interestingly, Sajid Nadiadwala is the youngest President the AMPTPP has ever had. Its prime agenda is to get strong representation before the State and Central Government for reforms in policies that affect the film and television industry. Among them is the amendment of statutes including the Copyright Act, relief in service tax and other statutory levies, relaxation with respect to stamp duties on Copyright agreements, speedy remedy by way of quick arbitrations and mediations, and investment in the entertainment sector, among other things.

Adds Sajid Nadiadwala, "This is a big responsibility that has been bestowed upon me by my seniors in the industry, so I will try my best to deliver on it. There are many issues that we have to look into - the most significant among them is piracy. It's something that I will look into very seriously in my new role as President of AMPTPP."
