Bunty Sajdeh’s Cornerstone Sport and Management, where Disha Salian worked as a manager before her mysterious death, boasts of big names as clients, including India cricket captain Virat Kohli and several of his team mates, besides top stars from other sports.
Disha was late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s manager and both of them met with mysterious deaths within a fortnight in June. She was working with Cornerstone, through which she came into contact with Sushant.
“Cornerstone is a new age sport and entertainment consultancy”, as per the company website.
Established in 2008, Cornerstone says it is India’s leading talent management agency in the spectrum of sport and entertainment alike. “We work with brands to deliver unique and varied solutions ranging from celebrity associations, sponsorships, IP development and affiliations as well as brand activations,” the website says.
