When Ambani’ father dies in 2002, he bequeaths to his two children an empire built by importing synthetic fiber to substitute cotton in various industries. The inheritance is shared between his sons Anil and Mukesh. Mukesh will get the retailing and the petrochemical industry whereas Anil will get the branches of telecom, entertainment and energy.
Since then, a war arose between both brothers who quarrel over the inheritance in order to be the richest. In Forbes ranking of 2011, Anil is 103rd.
With a Master of Business Administration obtained at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (same school than Warren Bruffett), Anil Ambani founded Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, which includes Reliance Communications, Reliance Capital, Reliance Energy and Reliance Natural Resources Limited.
Anil has a passion for entertainment. Married to a Bollywood star of eighties, he devotes more and more investments, with only one thought running in his head: to conquer Hollywood. He accomplished a master stroke September 20, 2008 by investing $ 220 million in DreamWorks, the production company of Steven Spielberg.
Even if Anil Mukesh is the Indian Ticoon who has managed to increase its capital of 24 billion of dollars a year, he is also the one who lost the most in 2008 ($ 30 billion).
The rumor of buyout of the football club Newcastle United to the owner Mike Ashley, for 360 million Euros was denied by Anil. However, he owns the cricket club of Premier League in Mumbai (Bombay).
In the movie “42 km”, one of the actors plays a role based on Anil’s life. We can see a scene where investors refuse to enter in the capital of the company because the president is big. Anil Ambani has admitted that he had experienced this situation.
"It is hope in this wider sense which enabled my father to build, from scratch, one of India's largest modern enterprises. His was an undertaking powered by hard work, initiative, self-belief but, above all else, the capacity, as he would often say, "to dream with your eyes wide open".
"I think you have to work with people, and when I talk about managing relationships, don’t think the derogatory ‘‘managed relationships’’. It is a question of sharing emotion and feelings. The common denominator of everything can’t be money, and it should not be money".
