It all started with a Twitter user asking Anand Mahindra about his ambition during his school or college. “@anandmahindra Ji, you are now leading a Giant Mahindra group… But what was your ambition during your School/College days? Have you ever felt like missing some other favourite profession?” they asked. In reply, the business tycoon shared about the time when he wanted to be a filmmaker.

“Easy to answer this. I wanted to be a filmmaker and was studied film in college. My thesis was a film I made at the ‘77 Kumbh Mela. But this pic was while shooting a documentary in a remote village near Indore. Anyone old enough to guess which handheld 16mm camera I was using?” he wrote. He also shared a throwback image with his tweet.
