Bobby Sarnevesht, Chairman and co-owner of Triller added, Saregama represents the rich diversity of Indian music and we are excited to enter into this important partnership to ensure music publishers are fairly compensated for the legacy they have built over the years. This new agreement reiterates our commitment to supporting publishers in South Asia and around the world as we grow the Triller platform.
