Meet the Team

Amrit Basran

Chairman & Founding Director

With over 25 years of industry experience, he started as an assistant commercial producer on a London wide multi language radio ‘Spectrum International‘. Within a year he was picked up by ‘TV Asia‘ to look after two of their local and most popular TV shows, ‘Bollywood Top 10‘ & ‘TVA & You‘ featuring their star presenter Asif Ghazali. The channel itself was owned and managed by Ajitabh Bachchan (younger brother of Bollywood Super Star Amitabh Bachchan), Faisal Sherjan and Javed Pasha. Here, his regular encounters with Amitbh Bachchan taught him the most important lesson of his media life, focus on the job at hand even while in the company of stars. 

This is where his route to becoming one of the most prolific creative Brit Asian began. He has a vast list of credits to his name as a creative director, producer and editor. His last role being the CEO of a film production company Genlock Films.

He has directed some of the top film & Television personalities including Bollywood Super star Shahrukh Khan (Don), Hollywood actor Art Malik (True Lies), British Actress Nina Wadia(Goodness Gracious Me) British actor John Altman(Eastenders) and many more.

He is a visionary. He started his first internet TV in 2005 when most of the people in the UK were just discovering what internet could do. Unfortunately no investor in his circle could see what he was seeing and he missed out on a chance of his channel being the Youtube of today. He sees the new technologies playing an absolute part in the delivery of tomorrow’s entertainment and information and he is ready to position Studio13uk in the centre of this all.
