NP Singh, the long-serving leader of Sony’s networks business in India, is stepping down from the C-suite.

In an email to staff seen by Deadline, he announced his resignation as CEO and Managing Director of Sony Pictures Networks India (SPNI) after 25 years with the company. “Having reached many significant milestones with our team, I am now ready to focus on social change and shift from operations to advisory ones,” he wrote.

“I understand there will be speculation during this time, so I urge everybody to rely on our official updates,” he added. “We are committed to sharing timely and transparent information through our established channels and will communicate any definitive updates directly.”

The news comes just months after Sony’s plan to merge its TV, film and streaming operations with ZEE Entertainment Enterprises collapsed at the eleventh hour. Both sides said closing conditions were not satisfied and are now seeking financial recompense from the other.

The $10B merger would have brought together the two companies’ linear TV networks, digital assets including streamers SonyLIV and ZEE5 Global, production operations and program libraries. Sony was planning on a cash injection and would have had a majority share stake of close to 51%.

SPNI operates as Culver Max Entertainment, but Singh referred to the business as SPNI in his note.
