Indian film production and distribution company, Yash Raj Films, on Wednesday named its senior member Akshaye Widhani as its new CEO on an immediate effect.

Widhani has very recently served as the company's senior VP, Finance and Business Affairs and the Head of Operations- YRF Studios.

Widhani, a graduate from the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University with a dual major in Finance and Entrepreneurship, joined YRF at 22 and is associated with the company for 17 years.

He started his career at YRF as a studio manager.

Commenting on his appointment, Widhani said, "I am incredibly honoured and humbled to assume the role of CEO of Yash Raj Films, a company in which I have spent the last 17 years of my life learning. I'm happy that I had a front-row seat as a member of the leadership team of YRF under Yashji and Aditya Chopra during the course of this time.

"I share their passion and commitment towards innovation, creative excellence, future expansion plans and also giving back to the industry that has supported and made us who we are today."

"I have been entrusted to collaborate and lead the hugely sharp think-tank at YRF which I believe to be the best that the industry has to offer. I'm looking forward to assuming this responsibility and taking the company to greater heights with the YRF family in the years to come," he added.
