The two-day event, hosted at the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School by the graduate students of Harvard University, brought together business leaders, entertainment professionals, and many other leaders to engage in a conversation about India’s path to global leadership.
R Madhavan has worked in various Bollywood films like Rang De Basanti, Tanu Weds Manu, 3 Idiots, Rehna Hai Tere Dil Main and Saala Khadoos to name a few. During his career span, he has shared the screens with various Bollywood biggies like Aamir Khan, Kangana Ranaut and John Abraham.
Earlier, while speaking at Harvard, actor Pawan Kalyan said he was suicidal years ago, “My focus was not on education; my focus was on issues that plagued the society. It made me go into depression. I wanted to commit suicide. As most of you know my brother (Chiranjeevi) was an actor by then. He owned a licensed pistol. I wanted to kill myself but my family counselled me. I then began experimenting with life. I studied computers, practised yoga, learned martial arts. I never wanted to be an actor. I wanted to be a yogi.”
According to reports, Vivek Oberoi too will be speaking at Harvard University as well.
