Looks like the India Inc bigwigs are now catching up with millennials when it comes to daily trends. From Mahindra top boss giving us #MondayMotivation to corporate leaders sharing #WednesdayWisdom every now and then, it looks like honchos are beating millennials at their own game. Indian industrialist and philanthropist, Ratan Tata, is the latest one to join the trend. The former chairman of Tata sons shared a #ThrowbackThursday picture which became an instant hit on Instagram.

The photo shows a young Ratan Tata, clad in a white shirt, looking at the camera. In the caption, the 82-year-old wrote that he was going to post the picture yesterday (Wednesday) but he realized that ‘throwbacks’ are done on Thursdays.

“So here is a throwback from my days in LA, not long before I happily returned to India,” wrote Tata.

The top boss’s picture was welcomed with positive comments by Instagrammers. Some netizens called him a Hollywood star, while others compared him to the Marvel superhero Captain America.

"You look like some Hollywood star, Sir," said a user. “Why don't you join Bollywood that time?” wrote another user.

For the unversed, the Padma Bhushan winner was working at Jones and Emmons in Los Angeles in 1962 after receiving his B.Arch degree from Cornell the same year.

Tata’s post has garnered over 373,000 likes. This is not the first time he has shared a throwback picture. Two months ago, the business magnate had shared a black-and-white picture of himself reading from his Cornell University days.

The philanthropist joined Instagram in October 2019 and has over 876,000 followers.
