SRK AND AMBANI ON FAREED ZAKARIA GPS ON CNN ...

Indian American journalist and author, Fareed Zakaria of CNN, recently traveled to India and brought back interviews of India's two iconic figures, Mukesh Ambani and Shahrukh Khan. The interview aired last night, Feb 21st, Sunday, on his show 'Fareed Zakari GPS' on CNN. 

WITH SHAHRUKH KHAN ...

With Shahrukh Khan, who was introduced to the show's audience as someone was described by the Los Angeles Times as "perhaps the world's biggest movie star", Zakaria's interview focused on Bollywood versus Hollywood in terms of market and stardom. "The 50 year old Khan has starred in over 70 films accotding to Forbes and made over 38 million dollars last year", said Zakaria as he introduced our king Khan. Shahrukh joked that “if they (Hollywood) don’t have six songs, they’re not competing with us", but on a serious note, he said that "India is the only country where local movies do better than international cinema" and that "it would be a while before international cinema became actual competition (in India)".

WITH MUKESK AMBANI ..

With Mukesh Ambani, the telecom tycoon of India, the talk centered around Reliance Jio that will give a farmer in rural India high quality broadband internet comparable to best in class connectivity in the US or even better by 2018. Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries Limited was introduced as “India’s richest man with a staggeringly vast plan of bringing high speed internet to a billion plus Indians in four years". Zakaria referred to the venture as 'The economic opportunity of the moment. His house "perhaps the most expensive house in the world" came up on the show as well.

WE SAY ...

Got to say that loved Zakaria picks for his GPS segment from India. Although Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra,  and Suraj Sharma can better claim to be the global face of Bollywood here in America, for goodness sake, after making 38 million dollars last year certainly qualifies Sharukh Khan to the voice of Bollywood on the popular analytical show. As for Mukesh Ambani, well, as per Forbes, the man has retained his position as India's richest person for close to a decade despite shares of his oil and gas giant Reliance Industries taking a hit due to lower oil prices. And now with his new venture, Reliance Jio (for which it has teamed up with once-estranged younger sibling Anil Ambani's Reliance Communications, as per Forbes), he has placed India at the threshold of another giant leap. He wins his position as the global authority on India's telecom.
