My achievements are the result of a decade-long struggle: Sunny Hinduja


Mumbai, Nov 25 | With four released projects and one film in the pipeline, actor Sunny Hinduja has made his place in the business of entertainment.

As the actor celebrates his birthday in Goa on Thursday, looking back at his journey so far, he says his success is the result of a decade-long struggle.

In conversation with IANS, Sunny said, “I think everyone, who is coming from outside to make it big in the industry deals with a fair share of struggle. My current achievement is the result of decade-long struggle. But I do not want to talk about how many times I got rejected in auditions before I got selected.

“Rejection is the part of the process…when you are new, it is only natural for people to doubt or not consider you initially, they do not know you. But that is okay, it is about eventually what happens to you. I have a lot of gratitude for everything that happened to me eventually.”

This year the actor is seen in web series like ‘Chacha Vidhayak Hain Humare’, ‘Aspirants’, ‘The Family Man’ and ‘Inside Edge’ and a web film ‘Jamun’.

Asked about choosing one of the inspirational on-screen characters from his work so far and Sunny said, “I would say the character of ‘Sandeep bhaiya’ from the web series called ‘Aspirants’. You know when the show was released our country was going through the second wave of the pandemic. People, especially youngsters were losing hope…there is nothing more dangerous than losing hope for a human being.

“Anxiety, depression and other mental health issues follow after that. I think our show was a hope and my character Sandeep bhaiya was a very positive, inspirational man. I got a lot of love from young audiences for that.”

While the OTT platforms have given life to the careers of many actors, in last two years we have seen the space has become competitive also.

Talking about how he looks at reality, Sunny said, “Yes it is true that earlier we used to say that in our country we have a lot of talent but in last two years, with the number of shows and films released on OTT platforms, all the talents are visible. So the competition has optimised, but so have the opportunities. Perhaps that is why I or all the budding talents are not worried about the competition. I think as long as we are getting work, good stories are told, good scripts are written – we are happy.”

So, what is the next project Sunny will be seen in?

“I have signed three projects but honestly speaking, I will only be able to speak about the film called ‘Shehzada’. It is a film directed by Rohit Dhawan, produced by T-Series and Allu Arjun Films. The film is featuring Kartik Aryan, Paresh Rawal saab and Manisha (Koirala) maam. It is a superb cast and I am playing an interesting character in that. The shooting of the film is already has started and I will join them soon,” he signed off.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
