After industrialist Anand Mahindra revealed last week that he was a film student in college and aspired to become a filmmaker, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday invited him to the State, if he ever wished to go behind the camera again.

To which, the Mahindra Group CEO responded: "I may take you up on that offer Shivraj Singh Chouhanji!"

Mahindra had revealed in a tweet on January 20 that he wanted to be a filmmaker and studied the subject in college. He had responded to a Twitter user’s question about what he aspired to be as a student.

“You are now leading a Giant Mahindra group,” the Twitter user, named, Eswaran, said. “But what was your ambition during your school/college days? Have you ever felt like missing some other favourite profession?”

Mahindra said the answer to that question was easy. “I wanted to be a filmmaker and studied film in college,” he added. “My thesis was a film I made at the ‘77 Kumbh Mela.”

Anand Mahindra also revealed that he went to college with filmmaker Mira Nair. She was, however, a year junior to him.

On being asked if Nair clicked the throwback photo, he said, “No, but she was only a year junior to me in college in the same college film department,” he said in response. “And she’s always kidded me that I ‘sold out to the establishment’ when I left film behind and went to Business School!”
