Rajat Gupta became the first Indian-born CEO of a multinational corporation when he was chosen Managing Director of McKinsey, the global consulting firm in 1994. He held that prestigious position for nine years. That was before other Indians such as Indira Nooyi or Vikram Pandit of Citicorp made their mark as global corporate leaders.
But all this was before a stunning fall from grace in 2012 when he was sentenced to two years in prison by a New York Court on charges of insider trading. Out of jail since 2016, Gupta now tells his side of the story in this interview to NDTV.
