In Diwali 2016, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala was interviewed by Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif. “My advice is money is not as important and a woman should be conscious of this. In a marriage, in a relationship there should not be your money and my money. It has to be our money,” the investing icon had advised. Katrina Kaif also sought investment advice for “Young India,” in the interview broadcasted on ET Now. To which Rakesh Jhunjhunwala replied, “ Draw a balance between the present and the future and one advice I give to every young Indian – the most difficult thing in India, urban India, is housing. So first thing that you do is try and buy house as that gives a great sense of security.”

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala had compared investing in the stock market to cooking, in a candid chat with Bollywood actress Chitrangada Singh in 2013. “I think women also know and understand, but the problem is that tips are hazardous for health and you cannot make money from broader knowledge and stock investing is like cooking and cannot be taught, it has to be learned,” he had said in response to a question seeking advice for women.
