KWAN Entertainment & Marketing Solutions, the agency that represents celebs like Ranbir Kapoor, Genelia D’souza and many other talents, has now got into a joint venture with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the world’s leading entertainment and sports agency.
This joint venture is aimed at representing local talent in India and the SAARC nations and create global opportunities in the areas of motion pictures and TV (including packaging and sales), music, commercial endorsements, sports consulting, licensing and merchandising, live events, and business development, among others. This venture will see CAA’s David Taghioff and Caleb Franklin, along with Anirban Das Blah (CEO and MD- KWAN) and COO Indranil ‘Niel’ Blah, combining their expertise to jointly lead CAA KWAN.
Speaking about this, Richard Lovett (President- CAA) said, “India’s robust entertainment industry offers CAA KWAN tremendous opportunities for talent across multiple platforms. In a very short period of time, KWAN has intelligently scaled and diversified their business to maximize this thriving marketplace for their clients. KWAN’s deep network of relationships, local-market knowledge, and collaborative business philosophy make them a powerful partner in furthering CAA’s existing business in India and providing our clients with more opportunities.”
Echoing his statements, Anirban Das Blah said “We believe that the combination of CAA’s experience, influence, and expertise, with KWAN’s extensive knowledge of the Indian entertainment industry, will enable us to provide an unmatched spectrum of services for our clients.”
The new company (CAA KWAN) will be based in Mumbai, with offices in Delhi, Bangalore, and Hyderabad.
