Dilip Shangvi, whom Forbes has crowned the richest Indian with a net worth of $21.5 billion, is the antithesis of everything that the corporate world represents. But that hasn't prevented the 60-year-old, born in a Gujarati family in the small town of Amreli, from charting a meteoric rise.
An introvert, Shangvi likes to keep a low profile and is rarely seen on the front pages of newspapers.
Yet, he has managed to keep his company, Sun Pharma, started with Rs 10000 as capital and a portfolio of five psychiatry 'products' and a two-man marketing team in 1983 at Vapi, at the forefront of business with record profits and growth.
