Sudhir Chaudhary, Editor-in-Chief and CEO of Zee News, Vion, Zee Business and Zee 24Taas has resigned from the company after 10 years. His resignation was confirmed by the company HR Ruchira Srivastava.
A statement issued by the company said, “After 10 years of journey with Zee News, Sudhir Chaudhary is going to start his own venture. Respecting his wish, the company has accepted his resignation with a heavy heart.”
After the news of Chaudhary quitting Zee News spread, Stand-Up-Comedian Kunal Kamra shared a video mocking Sudhir Chaudhary from his previous DNA show where he spoke about ‘benefits of Startup’.
Have a look at the video:
Sudhir Chaudhary was quick to react to Kamra’s video. Taking Kamra’s insulting video on a lighter note Chaudhary responded, “India’s first news start-up!” with a smiley emoji. Following Chaudhary’s response tweet, Kunal hits back to the anchor with a sharp tweet. Kamra tweeted, “India’s first entrepreneur with a diploma from Tihar University…”
Even before Chaudhary could recuperate from Kamra’s sustained attacks, he began to face mocking from social media users, who called him ‘Tihadi‘ in a bid to highlight his confession on camera of demanding Rs 100 crore from Jindal group.
Let us tell you that Sudhir Chaudhary and Ahluwalia were arrested in 2012 after a complaint by Jindal’s firm that they had demanded Rs 100 crore in lieu of not airing adverse news against the firm. Chaudhary and Ahluwalia were released on bail later.
