In the field of cricket, the best all rounder of all times is Jacques Kallis without an ambiguity. However, the only three things that he had to do were bowling, batting and fielding. Emulating Kallis’ cricketing supremacy in the film industry is Farhan Akhtar. The director of famous movies like Lakshya and Dil Chahta Hai is also the founder of Excel Entertainment and his social initiative MARD. Although, he is not an actual CEO, he is virtually the CEO of all his initiatives and exerts the capabilities of being India’s most loved one. If the 42 year old CEO, would have been a programming variable, he would have been defined by an array of the largest size. His abilities contain acting, direction, production, singing, lyrical skills and myriad of other skills within its domain. To find a few possibilities, one needs to try infinite stupidities and this CEO did that. One must work hard towards all their interests, until they find their true passion.
However, his journey to his current bonus exitus shouldn’t be wrongly believed to be a cakewalk. Due to low attendance during his graduation, he was expelled from his college. What followed, were years of confinement into a single room and watching a plethora of movies with seemingly no tangible outcome. However, something that probably even his worried parents failed to notice was that the upcoming CEO was evolving to fit into his role. A full moon is always preceded by a crescent. The CEO refused to be influenced by the negative energy around him and we love him for that.
In 2001, his first movie ‘Dil Chahta Hai’ was released and what came alongwith, was a breeze of critical acclaim. Lakshya, his second directorial venture fuelled his rise to an equal height above the former. With Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Dil Dhadakne Do and many others, an array of cult movies deterred Mr Akhtar from looking back upon the path he trod gracefully. All of his stints into movies succoured in widening the map of his niche fan base.
With each new venture of his, the audience are surprised by experiencing a new skill that the CEO has. His dynamism has won him accolades from his audience as well as by the members of the industry wherein he works.
Many companies rise to the the penultimate checkpoints of success, but only a few manage to distinguish themselves and be called as the ultimate winners. Farhan has won several hearts with his social initiatives. His social campaign MARD: Men Against Rape and Discrimination brings his sensitive and concerned nature towards the society to discernible levels. In their lust for success, most of the other CEOs turn indifferent to the grassroot sabotaging issues of society. A major constituent of his popularity is accrued to the fact that he invigorates a sense of responsibility within those who follow him. When a large sect of people look up to him, they view him as a ‘down to earth hero’.
His sense of responsibility, myriad of his skills and his persistent hard work are the reasons to why Farhan could be considered as India’s most loved CEO. However, to be on a safer side we would ask you to fasten your seatbelts as the flight is still midway and we don’t know who the actual most loved CEO of India is.
