Chairman, Future Group

From working in his family's textile business to emerging as India's largest retailer has been one mighty leap for Kishore Biyani. The group's flagship Pantaloon Retail operates across various formats like hypermarkets, supermarkets and department stores. Biyani often visits his stores incognito to study the buying habits of customers. And to know what clicks with buyers, he watches Indian television soaps to keep abreast of the latest trends.
