Ashish Hemrajani | The original ticket master | to present Key Note address at Print Summit 2014
Ashish Hemrajani :
The founder and CEO of BookMyShow
“If you don't earn money, it's not dhanda (business). Anything that's free has no value. Don't be excitable when the going's good, or feel bad when the times are low. And do not fear junk competition.”
In mid-July (2013), signed a five-year deal worth Rs.1,000 crore with PVR Ltd to sell the latter's tickets online (BookMyShow was previously managing PVR's ticketing system but was not selling its tickets on the BookMyShow site). Hemrajani says the biggest gain from this deal is for the end consumer. "All I own is your user experience. The user owns us. I am giving that extra experience in one place," he says. The deal adds 89 PVR cinemas (including Cinemax India Ltd, which the company acquired in January) with over 380 screens to BookMyShow's existing tie-up with over 1,500 screens.
“I am like the Forrest Gump guy,” says Ashish Hemrajani referring to the 1994 movie. “The whole world has gone around and I haven't moved out of a 1km radius.”
Ashish Hemrajani has revolutionized the way we consume entertainment - by making the experience a breeze, making it transparent and just-in-time. To introduce Ashish, we searched 'the net' and find an interview published in the Mint, to be a match that fits a personality who is true to the credo of entrepreneurship.
