Remember Mayoori Kango? The pretty light-eyed actress had a big debut back in the 90s in the movie Papa Kehte Hain opposite Jugal Hansraj. The song Ghar Se Nikalte Hi was hugely popular and recently, got a remix version too. Masala.com had earlier reported how Mayuri had given up on Bollywood and was doing very well in her corporate life in Gurgaon, near Delhi. She had completed her MBA in Finance and Marketing with distinction before shifting to a corporate career in Marketing.
Mayoori Kango has made headlines again with her appointment as the Industry-Head, Agency Business at Google India, reports Financial Express. This is the first time a Bollywood actress has reached the top of the corporate ladder after giving up a career in films. The former actress also confirmed her appointment to Afaqs.
Before joining Google, according to her LinkedIn profile, Mayoori Kango was working as the Managing Director for Performics, a digital media agency which is a part of the French group Publicis. She headed Performics for around three years and prior to that, she also worked as the chief digital officer of ZenithOptimedia for seven years.
Mayoori had a fairly decent career in the glamour world. She was last seen in a television serial Karishma – The Miracles of Destiny in 2003 as the daughter of Karisma Kapoor. The same year she got married to NRI Aditya Dhillon and moved to the US. She pursued further studies and completed her MBA in marketing and finance from City University of New York-Baruch College – Zicklin School of Business in 2007. After giving birth to her son in 2011, she returned to India and settled in Gurgaon.
