India-born Google CEO Sundar Pichai visited his alma mater IIT-Kharagpur, West Bangal. This was Pichai’s first visit to the IIT campus since he passed out 23 years ago. Pichai interacted with students and shared some interesting anecdotes about his student life; his favourite cricketer, actor and ideal; as well as shared insights into India’s growth as a digital economy, startup culture in the country and much more.
In a reply to one of the questions (who’s your favorite actress in Bollywood?) put on by a student, Pichai said: ‘Deepika Padukone’ by adding, ‘I used to watch Prakash Padukone play badminton.’
A reply which emphasizes her long list of the celebrity fans. When the Tamil Nadu-born Sundar was questioned who’s his favorite Bollywood actress during the college days, he wittily responded: ‘many’.
