Former Snapdeal general counsel (GC) Ashish Chandra has joined streaming service Netflix India as legal director after a brief stint with Malaysian media and entertainment company Astro Malaysia Holdings as vice president and head counsel, as first reported by Bar & Bench.

He was based in Kuala Lumpur while at Astro Malaysia since August 2017, as we had reported last year.
