The end of the Zee-Sony merger, a topic of media attention for the last two years, came abruptly on January 22. Sony Pictures had envisioned a $10-billion media giant through this merger. Sony entities Culver Max and Bangla Entertainment also pulled out from the agreement, demanding a $90-million termination fee from Zee due to unfulfilled conditions.

The failed merger was previously seen as a significant growth opportunity for Zee Entertainment, which has faced various corporate governance controversies. The collapse of this deal has negatively impacted market sentiment towards Zee, showing a challenging road ahead for the media company without the anticipated benefits of the merger.
