She also said “Few journalists have impacted people as much as Ravish.

She praised Ravish for being an integral part of NDTV for decades and his immense contribution. She also wished him a new beginning.
All this happened after RRPR Holding, NDTV’s promoter transferred 99.5% of its equity capital to the Adani Group-owned Vishvapradhan Commercial on November 28.
