Recalling his dear friend, Anil wrote, “Rakesh Jhunjhunwalla was a dear friend, always been a well wisher of my family…specially my daughters Sonam and Rhea .. a visionary and a true Indian patriot .. loved films and music .. we will miss him dearly.”

Jhunjhunwala was also closely associated with Bollywood. In 2012, he produced the film English-Vinglish starring Sridevi. After the success of English-Vinglish, he produced two more films, Shamitabh and Ki & Ka. 

The ace investor was raised in Bombay, where his father was an income tax commissioner.
