Anand Mahindra likes to engage with people on Twitter, often by addressing their queries and also sharing interesting stuff with them. He is known to be candid on social media. However, Mr Mahindra knows when to hold back and what information he should divulge and what not. When a user recently asked him about the launch date of the upcoming Scorpio, a popular SUV offered by his Mahindra & Mahindra Group, the veteran industrialist smartly deflected the attention, saying he “will be fired” if he disclosed that information. But, Mr Mahindra added, he is as excited about the launch as the Twitter user.
“Sir please tell me on which date the Scorpio is going to launch because we are waiting for it,” said the person. Replying to the tweet, Mr Mahindra said, “Sshhhh. If I tell you, I’ll be fired… But I can say this much…I’m as excited as you are.”
