Success story of Anil agarwal: Anil Agarwal, a veteran of the mining sector, has taken to social media to tell his story of establishing such a huge empire by starting with the scrap metal business, from writing his book to making his ‘biopic’ on behalf of big producers. Offers are being received. He is overwhelmed by this response. After revealing this story, he is getting the kind of welcome that is seen for any ‘Rockstar’. Not only this, he is also getting offers to write a book and money to make a film on his life.
Very interesting journey from Bihar to Mumbai
In February this year, 68-year-old Agarwal first tweeted about his journey from Bihar to Mumbai. He then went on to describe his visit to London where he led a large natural resources company on a global scale. The company deals in zinc-lead-silver, iron ore, steel, copper, aluminium, power, oil and gas sectors. Aggarwal said in an interview to PTI-Bhasha, “I am not a star. I am not very educated. I am not a film actor. But the response I have received (to the tweet about my journey), has been overwhelming. One of my tweets has got 20 lakh reactions. I am surprised myself.”

Know about the chairman of Vedanta
Vedanta Chairman Anil Agarwal was born on January 24, 1954 in Patna, Bihar in a lower-middle-class Marwari family. His father Dwarka Prasad Agarwal had a small business of aluminum conductor. He dropped out at the age of 15 to help his father’s business and moved to Mumbai at the age of 19 with only a tiffin box, a bed and a dream.
Aggarwal said, “When I write my story, I always keep in mind whether I am glorifying myself. All I am saying is please don’t be afraid of failure. Never think small or dream small. If I can do it, so can you. You are more capable than me. This is my message.”
Social media post ‘hit’
While his social media posts have become a ‘hit’, Agarwal says publishers are constantly approaching his people for book rights. Film offers have also come to him. Without naming anyone, he said, “There is no one film company that has approached. All the major manufacturers have approached. They want to give me money for ‘biopic’. Agarwal said that he has not made up his mind yet. He will take a decision on this after talking to his colleagues and daughter Priya.

Later he also decided to enter the field of copper cable for telecom companies. He came into limelight in 2001 when his company acquired state-run aluminum company Balco.
