Mukesh Ambani, now his soon going-to-be father-in-law and a close family friend, advised him ‘Being a consultant is like watching cricket or commentating about cricket while being an entrepreneur is like playing cricket.
You can’t learn how to play cricket by commentating. If you want to do something, be an entrepreneur in the long term and start now.
He considers this a million-dollar advice from Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest person. Upon his advice and his father’s support, Anand Piramal joined his family business.
