NRI industrialists Hinduja brothers – S P Hinduja and G P Hinduja – have won the Business Leader of the Year 2015 award at the prestigious 5th Asian Awards for their outstanding achievement in the field of business.

Receiving the award, Co-Chairman of the Hinduja Group G P Hinduja said this year his group has been winning one or two award every month and “each award keep us going and put more responsibility on our shoulders to do better.”

“I would love to see each one of you successful and get this award,” he told the packed gathering at the Grosvenor House Hotel here last night.

Hinduja said he did not consider earning money as an indicator of success. “Whatever one does, if he or she loves, success will follow.”

He received the award from Lord Karan Billimoria.

The Asian Awards honouring Asian Excellence is founded by businessman Paul Sagoo.

Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan also received an award for outstanding achievement in cinema while Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara, who scored four consecutive centuries in the recent World Cup, won an award for achievement in sports.

Receiving the award, Sangakkara said: “cricket in Sri Lanka is slightly more than a sport. During the ravages of 30 years of war, it was the Sri Lankan team that really represented the country and its diversity.”

Philadelphia-based Amar Gopal Bose, founder, Chairman and Technical Director of Bose Corporation who died in July 2013 aged 83 was posthumously given the Founders Award.

His daughter Maya Bose received the award, saying “my father’s enthusiasm for teaching and innovation was contagious.”

Gopi Gopalakrishnan, President of World Health Partners, which uses technology and franchising to increase the quality and coverage of essential healthcare services to rural areas around the world, received the Social Entrepreneur award while John Rocha who was born in Hong Kong and settled in Dublin won the Art and Design award.
