Rahul Sharma (BComm'95), the co-founder and CEO of Micromax, of one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers that is based in India, is making headlines for something other than his business success—he's set to marry famous Bollywood actress Asin Thottumkal.

Under Sharma's leadership, Micromax has become the second largest smartphone player in India, which is the second largest market in the world.

Micromax has been named the Most Promising Company for the Next Decade by CNBC Awaaz and the Emerging Company of the Year 2011. Sharma's achievements have earned him the Forbes Person of the Year in 2010, GQ Man of the Year (Excellence in Business) in 2013, and he was among the only four Indians in Fortune Magazine's Global Power List of 2014—Fortune's ‘40 under 40' list for 2014.
