Khan do It!
It was one of the first ever international and business marketing quiz at their institute,and Arindam Chaudhuri roped in their star attraction,Shah Rukh Khan to host it. With the mike in his hand,Khan opened the floor to the grand finale of Dare 2010,the first-ever international business and marketing quiz organized by The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) in association with 4Ps Business and Marketing magazine. As he pulled out all stops to entertain and engage the three thousand plus fans,Khan said that it was “great fun”. “For me,IIPM,and the Dare quiz that we do is mainly a chance to meet up with people who like me so much,or watch the work that I do,or have done. So it’s a great experience…one-on-one…I can interact with them,do a little bit of entertainment,and do the quizzing. But the best part is the energy that I feel. I love the stadium feel that we are doing this show in.” Six top teams who had made it through the qualifying rounds including two international teams (from Booth School of Business,University of Chicago and Kenan-Flagler Business School,University of North Carolina) had the privilege to be on stage with Khan as they got a chance to answer the marketing posers. Finally,conquering the myriad twists and turns and the challenging,yet fun questions,were Karanjot Singh and Alekhya Chakrabarty from IMT,Ghaziabad who walked away the winners.
