Lionsgate’s Rohit Jain Takes On Expanded Responsibilities in Asia


Lionsgate has renewed the contract of Rohit Jain, who has been promoted to managing director for South Asia and network platforms for emerging markets in Asia.

Jain is now responsible for spearheading growth across all of Lionsgate’s South Asian businesses and expanding the Starz subscription platform throughout the emerging markets of Asia. Since Lionsgate established its first office in India in 2018 under his leadership, Rohit has led the growth of its Asian operations by launching the Lionsgate Play streaming service across multiple emerging Asian markets. He has also been instrumental in establishing a South Asian licensing and distribution business to strengthen Lionsgate’s footprint in the region.

“Rohit is an entrepreneurial and innovative executive who has gotten our Indian operations off to a great start with the successful launch of Lionsgate Play,” said Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer. “He has created a forward-looking blueprint for growth in one of the world’s most important territories. As he expands our streaming initiatives into additional emerging Asian markets, he will be an important part of moving our global platform forward.”

“This is an exciting time for all of us at Lionsgate as our newly launched SVOD service has received a phenomenal response from Indian viewers,” said Jain. “The entrepreneurial culture at Lionsgate, a global company with the soul of a start-up, is what keeps me excited. I am thankful to Lionsgate’s visionary leadership team for creating this wonderful opportunity.”
