Someone on Twitter declared that according to her, Virat Kohli is #IndiasMostLovedCEO because hey, he is taking the Indian Crkcket Team to new achievements, and how! Virat, through his captaincy, is showing the world that a good leader need to Lead By Example.
My colleague, on the other hand, seems to be sure that Karan Johar (yes, the famously stylish and outspoken film maker) should be India’s Most Loved CEO. Why, I asked her. Well, she said, most of his movies do extremely well on the box office because he has a grasp on the audience’s preference, he turns new comers into overnight starts of the tinsel town, and he comes across as someone who has the Willingness To Take Calculated Risks. Who could argue with that, right?
