Punit Goenka, MD & CEO, ZEE Entertainment, personally meets his one millionth Twitter follower


On touching the momentous milestone of ‘One Million Followers’ on Twitter, Punit Goenka, Managing Director and Chief Executive Office of zee-entertainment-enterprises_1328.html">ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd. (ZEEL) surprised his 1 millionth follower, Manjiri Sonar by inviting her to his office in Mumbai for an exclusive interaction. Sonar, who is a resident of Pune, was driven across to Mumbai, along with her family, in a chauffeur-driven luxury car. Goenka then spent some quality moments with her and family, exchanging thoughts and interests. 


Expressing her delight, Sonar said, “I feel extremely privileged to be the chosen one to meet and greet with Punit Goenka as his One Millionth Twitter follower. It was overwhelming to know that such a successful business leader like Goenka chose to celebrate this milestone with a commoner. I can’t thank him enough to host me and my family in such a grand manner in his office. I was completely awestruck by his simplicity and greatness. His journey to success is an inspiration for me and many others, as I am just stepping into my career.”


Sharing his experience, Goenka said, “It was a pleasure meeting my 1 millionth follower, Manjiri Sonar. This is the least that I can do for my followers. Wish I could do this with all of them. While it's always a pleasure to interact with them on Twitter, this time, thought I must meet and interact in person. As senior leaders of the industry, we must motivate the youth because that’s the future of our Country.”


Sonar is an aspiring business professional recently graduated with an MBA in HR from Pune University. Even though she joined Twitter in 2015, she has recently become active and is more than happy with her 100 followers.  As an aspiring professional, she sees Twitter as a great platform to follow successful personalities and to learn from them. The entire Sonar family is a big fan of Dr. Subhash Chandra and they follow his show on TV. 


During the meeting, Goenka shared his life lessons with Manjiri. He also presented her with a personalised signed copy of the much celebrated autobiography – ‘The Z Factor: My Journey as the Wrong Man at the Right Time’ of Dr. Subhash Chandra, Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha and Chairman, ZEE & Essel Group.
