Vikas Boni, Head - MTV Beats, Business Planning & Content Partnerships, Youth, Music & English Entertainment Viacom18 said: “As a one-stop destination for all things Bollywood, MTV Beats has always stayed ahead of the curve offering not only music but a fresh take on it with artists. The channel’s reach has jumped, and viewership has grown significantly during the lockdown.
