Anushka Sharma, Dipali Goenka, Zia Mody, Anita Dongre and Prajakta Koli Among India’s Most Influential Women

Anushka Sharma is not just among the most popular and highly paid actors in India. In its annual
selection of India’s Most Influential Women, BW Businessworld, discovered that there is really much
more to this exceptional lady. Apart from supporting various charities and causes, including those for
gender equality and animal rights, Sharma is also, as she says, “an instinctive entrepreneur”.
BW Businessworld’s recently released annual edition of the Most Influential Women, features forty-
two women leaders who have made a positive impact on the economy and society.  This special
feature brings down the spotlight on women leaders from different walks of life, including the
corporate sector, government, media and entertainment. These are leaders whose overall work in
general, and whose influence in the last one year in particular, has made a far-reaching impact on
the business and economic landscape in India.
Apart from Sharma, the cover also features industrialist Dipali Goenka who has not only led Welspun
India to newer heights but also propagated sustainability and brought in industry transformation.
Fashion designer Anita Dongre who is well-known for her aesthetic sensibilities. Prajakta Koli, India’s biggest female digital content creator who has over 4.9 million subscribers on YouTube and over 1.8 million followers on instagram and leading corporate lawyer Zia Mody, who excels in M&A deals and is the country’s foremost corporate attorney.
The issue celebrates women leaders who have consistently evolved and overcome challenges to
reach the top of their chosen profession. In addition to the feature on MIW (Most Influential
Women), the magazine has columns and features on COVID-19 that has caused havoc globally.
Leading voices have contributed to this feature in an effort to analyse the economic impact of this
deadly pandemic.
