Sony Pictures Television Networks president Andy Kaplan, Multi Screen Media Private Limited CEO Man Jit Sing, and PVR Cinemas chairman and managing director Ajay Bilji are in line for honours.

Each will receive the 2011 IFFLA Industry Leadership Awards on Apr 14 in Los Angeles during the 9th Annual Indian Film Festival Los Angeles (IFFLA), which runs from Apr 12-17.

The awards were created to recognise “the achievements of industry executives who have had a substantial and personal impact on the creation and distribution of Indian themed content globally and have led the expansion of the entertainment and media industry in India.”

“This year’s honourees have contributed immensely to the success and growth of the Indian entertainment industry allowing it to reach new heights in visibility and profitability,” IFFLA chair Arnold Peter said. “Their contributions have allowed the industry to expand within and beyond India to become a recognised worldwide entertainment content leader.”
