In a world full of gender bias and constant rise in crime against women, Ashish Kaul set out on a long arduous path to make a humble difference.
A trailblazer and a maverick business leader across media and entertainment spectrum is the easiest introduction of Ashish Kaul. He represents a bold new generation of mavericks who refuse to be stereotyped and have etched their own histories.
Ashish served as Group Vice President of entire Zee & Essel Group, Business Head of Hinduja Group's content business, CEO of Association of Motion Pictures & TV Programme Producers Association and CEO of Prakash Jha Productions. Also, he highlighted and diverted national eyeballs to Woman, Children and senior citizen issues nationally, through columns in The Hindu, Daily Excelsior, Dainik Bhaskar, Amar Ujala and other such leading newspapers.
Ashish is now serving as COO of Folklore Entertainment and is set out to explore the greatest journey anyone has taken - the journey of reviving female role models that have made extraordinary contribution to multifarious development of India. However, the life and the times of such women achievers was diluted and systematically erased from history at the behest of various victors and rulers who could not accept the genius of extraordinary and powerful women. Didda: The Warrior Queen Of Kashmir, published by Rupa Publications is one of those forgotten women. With Global ranking 10 in few days of its launch, it has become a talking point across educational institutions and media at large. The same book is translated into Hindi and published by Prabhat Prakashan by the name ‘Didda: Kashmir ki Yoddha rani’. Ashish is also a proud author of two more best sellers namely Refugee Camp and Rakht Ghulab.
