Excerpts from our exclusive interview with Kaif Ali Khan:

Q1) Tell us a little bit about your journey, please;

In 2014, I came into the limelight through a television serial called Jodha Akbar where I played the role of Abdul Rahim Khan-E-Khana. My debut role was immediately endeared by the audience. After that, I decided to explore the entertainment industry further. While acting has always been a true passion and a hobby that is very close to my heart, towards 2018 I started to take an interest in the business world. It is safe to say that my first few years in the entrepreneurial world were not at successful as I ventured into the unknown and engaged in various small-scale businesses based in India.

Q2) What was your key driving force to become an entrepreneur?

I’m not sure I have a definitive answer but I can tell you what motivated me:

  • Autonomy – I wanted to make my own decisions and be free to experiment with my own strategies and execution tactics.
  • Family – My wife once told me during my struggling days, “if you find yourself questioning why things are the way they are and why things are not changing for the better, this very question itself is a motivating force for you to get started”.  She brings out the entrepreneurial spirit in me. My father and mother are also ever so supportive.

Q3) What tactics have been most successful so far?

I do not possess a piece of vast knowledge and I am learning every day but the one thing that I can say is very important in the business world is “Planning”. Planning helps you identify the key steps to take to reach your business goals and it is something that has to be done regularly, with every little thing involved. By identifying a clear plan for how you will reach your goals, you can focus on capitalizing on your strengths as well.

Q4) What are your current businesses?

Currently, I have launched a lifestyle and wellness magazine and I am also continuing my partnership business with The Brand Deo, India.

Q5) Can you describe your typical day?

Most days are incredibly normal. I wake up, work out, have breakfast, catch up on calls and e-mails and figure out what I am going to do for the day. I do like keeping a to-do list of my day-to-day work schedule. I try m best to wrap up all my meetings by 7:30 pm and head home. I get to bed sometime around midnight.

Q6) What is your greatest fear, and how do you manage fear?

My greatest fear is that I’ll one day realize that I lived my life not doing what makes me and my family happy. But luckily, I have a very loving family who constantly assures me that I am doing my best and loves me unconditionally.

Q7) What comes first for you money or emotions?

You’ve probably heard the saying “money can’t buy happiness”. Some agree with that saying and others do not. Different people have different views and opinions. I feel in today’s world being financially stable and being happy are both important in order to lead a fulfilling life. Is one synonymous with the other? Maybe, since they both evaluate life as a whole.

Q8) What piece of advice would you give out to young entrepreneurs??

It’s never going to be easy, do it anyway!
