Higher the qualification, higher is the success? This theory is often proven wrong by those who went on to achieve massive success in their fields, despite being not being overly qualified. Internationally, Microsoft founder Bill Gates often makes it to the list of most successful ‘dropouts’. In India, many sportspersons and film stars have proved that educational qualifications aren’t proportional to success. One such film star who went on to achive success as a politician is Smriti Irani. The Union Minister connected with this similarity with Bill Gates when there were snapped together.

Smriti Irani had recently shared a photograph with Bill Gates, where they are moving up on an escalotor. She captioned the post, “सोच रहे हैं पढ़ाई पूरी करी नहीं , आगे क्या करें 🧐” (Since we didn’t complete our education, we’re now wondering what to do next). Responding to Smriti Irani’s Instagram post with Bill Gates, Ekta Kapoor replied, “Bosss ! Tulsi kyunki abh bhi yaaa hai......pls waaapsi Karein 😂” (Kyunki... is still remembered, please return as Tulsi).
After beginning her career in showbiz as a beauty pageant contestant, Smriti Irani’s claim to fame was the Ekta Kapoor-produced Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. She became an overnight sensation and a household name. in a few years. Her character witnessed so many twists and truns that she even played a grandmother in it towards the end. Ekta and Smriti still share a strong bond, even after 12 since the show went off air.
