Sundar Pichai reveals how Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan helped him become more popular
We all know who Sundar Pichai is, CEO of Google Inc. but do we only know his name and everything else that we know about him because of Shah Rukh Khan?
Shah Rukh Khan being the amazing, loved person he is who can easily steal anybody’s heart with just a smile is an icon for many. People often buy things just because he uses it or tries to understand things just because he talks about it. Now since he is such a huge star, more and more people do these things and it is safe to say that those things and topics spread easily. Then is it unreal to believe that he made Sundar Pichai popular after just an interview?
Shah Rukh along with the cast of Happy New Year did a fireside chat with Sundar Pichai at Googleplex in 2014 and Sundar thinks, it is because of that interview that he thinks he is so popular.
Sundar will be seen on Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khans TV Show TED Talks India Nayi Soch. In the upcoming episode titled Tommorow’s World, Pichai will appear through video conference, read a statement. He said “Bollywood is globally famous. Everyone knows Shah Rukh, but people started to know me after interview with him in 2014 for his film ‘Happy New Year’. I must say his job is really cool, but he’s cooler”.
Pichai did not leave with just this statement and also said that he aims to empower every Indian with access to smartphones and connectivity through a programme called ‘Internet Saathi’. He added “Slow down, take time to think about what you want to do from your heart”.
Well, one thing is for sure. Shah Rukh Khan or Sundar Pichai’s hardwork or just the internet, whatever it might have been the reason for Pichai to be popular is great. It would have been a loss to not know such a person and his achievements. Even if Shah Rukh helped, it is because of his own diligence, work ethic and ideals that he could stay popular and known.
