We are following IPL 8 religiously and this time it’s just not the cricketers who are making our eyes pop. We’re talking about this girl, Raakhe Kapoor Tandon, seen sitting in the VIP box and sometimes making a presence as the member of the presentation committee.
Thanks to the internet which is currently gushing over this beauty, we have been able to plough some details about her.
She is 27 (and married!), who currently acts as the promoter and director of Raas Housing Finance. She is counted as one of the India’s 25 most influential ladies according to India Today magazine. Raakhe is an MBA graduate from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and the daughter of Yes Bank founder and CEO, Dr Rana Kapoor.
She has worked as an investment banker in the US and has also set up a business incubation firm Rural Agri Ventures India Pvt Ltd. She says: “Entrepreneurship is very close to my heart and something which I have learnt first-hand from my father. One mantra which he often reinforces is to Visualise, Strategise and Actualise with a constant focus on execution.”
However, we didn’t really like the way some people are behaving. Tweets objectifying the woman in her:
I think I’ve just found my future wife. Call me, maybe? pic.twitter.com/MCCwyBVqSj

But she is a sport: “I believe that the whole buzz around the IPL will indirectly help me in my mission to empower and engage entrepreneurs, especially the Indian woman, and also bring to the fore the immense potential of rural and agri ventures, affordable housing and entrepreneurial education.”
Stalk this talented girl here and learn a thing or two about banking!
