Commenting on Rajani's exit, NP Singh, Managing Director & CEO, SPN, said, "At an organisational level, Sneha's contributions have been game changing. She has successfully chaperoned the organisation's growth from launching Sony MAX, India's leading Hindi movies channel to leading our flagship channel, SET, and establishing SPN's theatrical division - SPNP and many more. She has been an active crusader for dignity and has led the diversity team at SPN, shaping the organisation into a truly inclusive workplace. Her dedication and commitment to the organization's cause has been unflinching and symbolic of her loyalty."
