In this short video virally doing its rounds amongst the social networks of the day, we find the real-life humorous situation where the security panic regarding the passage of the celebrity business tycoon Mukesh Ambani through a heavily populated area, vanguarded by security personnels and more concerned officials and employees. Which should have been a real security glitch, fiasco, or even a problem is turned into a quasi-joke as we see kids running around and gunned personnel doing their job.
As we all know, Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani , born 1957, is the Chairman, Managing Director and Largest Shareholder of Reliance Industries Limited, a Fortune Limited, a Fortune Global 500 company and India’s most valuable company by market value.
According to the prestigious Forbes magazine, his net worth is 41.8 billion USD, as of 2017, and as we see the public around the amusement park where this “godlike” figure is passing, the security is really sparse as compared to the value of the “treasure” that is passing through. In a humorous display of India’s typical attitude to famous people, people start jeering and cheering in Hindi, “Arey dekho Mukesh Ambani Aa Rahaa Hain” (See Everyone, Mukhesh Ambani is Coming!) as if either a royalty or even a rare animal in the zoo is paraded amongst the public.
It is hard to say whether people are really respectful towards this extreme innovator and believer of game-changing business strategies as well as one of the most successful business magnates in Indian economic history, or whether it could be anyone remotely famous in any field, whether the local TV star or the local politician.
The funniest part is, that while it is clear that the video is being shot by an amateur cameraman in an android phone, he/she seems to be quite interested in a pretty lady in a green saree, and the lens seems to focus on her more often than on the security parade. While it is palpable that t
he attendee public is extremely stimulated about the advent and passage of the celebrity in question, we barely manage to catch a glimpse of him in person.
