It was a proud moment for India as Anushka Sharma broke into the Forbes #Asia30Under30 list. She is the only Bollywood star in the list as of now. Other than Anushka, badminton player P V Sindhu, cricketer Smriti Mandhana and polo player Padmanabh Singh also feature in the same list. Singh is also the captain of the Indian Polo Team.
This is no mean feat. Now in its third year, the annual #30Under30 Asia list features 300 names from across 10 categories who are re-inventing their industries and driving change across this diverse region. Nominations were invited from about 24 countries across Asia-Pacific – including Azerbaijan and North Korea for the first time. The finalists were selected from thousands of online nominations. Anushka Sharma and PV Sindhu stormed into the list. Four entrepreneurs from Hyderabad have also been featured.
