    The best film on leadership I have seen: ‘Chak De! India’

    Abhishek Khaitan, managing director at Radico Khaitan, says the best film on leadership he has seen is ‘Chak De! India’

    ‘Chak De! India’, directed by Shimit Amin, stars Shah Rukh Khan as Kabir Khan, a fictional former captain of the Indian hockey team.

    Abhishek Khaitan, managing director (MD) at liquor maker Radico Khaitan Ltd, picks a movie as his big inspiration rather than a management book. The movie, Chak De! India, is a 2007 Hindi sports drama about a hockey coach.

    Chak De!, directed by Shimit Amin, stars Shah Rukh Khan as Kabir Khan, a fictional former captain of the Indian hockey team. The rousing movie shows how Khan, after suffering a disastrous loss to the Pakistan hockey team, redeems himself as the coach of the Indian women’s hockey team and helps it win the World Cup.

    “The leadership portrayed by the character of Kabir Khan is immensely inspirational. The movie presents learnings about how a great leader recognizes the potential of his team and instils courage, confidence and discipline in them,” Khaitan says.

    “It beautifully focuses on creating unity in diversity among the team and teaches one that the team’s objectives are greater than individual’s personal objectives. It emphasizes how training, hard work and perfection act as stepping stones to success. Moreover, the movie excellently displays how a leader does not get demotivated and makes his dream come true through his determination and persistence,” the Radico Khaitan MD says.

    Every time Khaitan feels challenged or disturbed, he watches this movie to restore his faith.
    “In any industry, it takes varying teams with varying convictions to come together for making a product which is finer and better than the previous. Varying viewpoints can arise at the right mix, right blend, right packaging from different teams, so the leader is required to bring all the teams to a platform driven by common objective and vision,” Khaitan adds.

    I was in my business courses when this one came out! I was so excited to see someone using this film (and our Sweetoo!) to teach such valuable lessons!
    I remember reading this (or something like this) at that time!

    Ahhh! A beard, a glimmer of a smile!
