Mumbai, May 02, 2017: With a fresh look and format, India’s popular motivational youth show, Dr. Subhash Chandra (DSC) Show is returning to television screens from May 6th, 2017 with new episodes that highlight inspirational stories of people from different backgrounds. After shooting at New Delhi, the next episodes of the DSC Show were held today at Whistling Woods International Institute and Prahlad Kakar School of Branding & Entrepreneurship (PKSBE) in Mumbai. During these episodes, Dr. Subhash Chandra, MP, Rajya Sabha & Chairman, Essel Group & ZEE spoke on topics close to his heart – MBA versus Entrepreneurs, Job-seeker versus Job-creator” and “How is entrepreneurship in creative industries different? What is required to be a successful media and entertainment entrepreneur in 2017?” Ad Guru, Prahlad Kakar, Founder & Chairman of Thyrocare, Dr. A. Velumani, Director of Door Step School, Beena Sheth Lashkari, Innovation Consultant, Kaustubh Dhargalkar and Director & Co-founder of PKSBE, Pratish Nair were invited as special guests and change-makers for these episodes.

A successful entrepreneur himself, Dr. Subhash Chandra expounded his views on “MBA versus Entrepreneurs; Job-seeker versus Job-creator” saying, “India is a country of entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship runs in our blood since we know how to succeed with limited resources, which is the pre-requisite for running a successful business. This behaviour arises in Indians not out of choice but out of requirement; but that is what successful entrepreneurs do, they turn limitations into opportunities.”

Elaborating further, Dr. Chandra said, “For an economy to flourish and be successful, we need both – Entrepreneurs and MBAs, Job-creators and Job-seekers. Neither is better or worse; each path has its own risks and rewards. However, both are essential parts of the system and it is upto each individual to find his or her calling and to strive for perfection. It is a universal truth that if you aim for excellence, you will be successful in whatever you do.”

Sharing insights and examples from his own experience in the Media and Entertainment industry, Dr. Chandra spoke on “Entrepreneurship in Creative Industries” saying, “The Indian Media & Entertainment (M & E) industry stood at Rs. 1,26,200 crores in 2016 as per the FICCI-KPMG Media and Entertainment Report 2017 and is expected to almost double its current size by the year 2020. We can therefore see that there is much opportunity for growth in this industry. To become a successful entrepreneur in the M & E industry or for that matter in any industry, you need to have a strong product on offer which is unique from any other existing product or you need to cater to an audience that has not been tapped before. By experimenting with new and creative offerings, you can keep the interest alive for your audiences, your employees and yourself.”
