Remember that pretty young thing who appeared in the super hit song ‘Ghar Se Nikalte Hi’ in the 90s? Her name is Mayuri Kango and she had managed to create quite a splash with the song back then. Though her Bollywood innings began with promise, she soon faded out after a spate of rather inconsequential films. But this time Mayuri is back as search giant Google’s top executive.
Mayuri has been appointed as the Head of Industry – Agency Business at Google India. Apparently, Mayuri had left IIT Kanpur to make a career in acting. She made her debut with National Award winning film ‘Naseem’ (1995), Mayuri has worked with actors such as Ajay Devgn, Anupam Kher, Arshad Warsi, Shakti Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Rani Mukerji, Chandrachur Singh and Jugal Hansraj. Later Mayuri shifted to the small screen and worked in TV shows like ‘Kaahin Kissii Roz’, ‘Kittie Party’, ‘Kkusum’ and ‘Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat’. She also went on to get married to an NRI named Aditya Dhillon on 28 December 2003 in Aurangabad. She later moved to New York with her husband and got an MBA in marketing and finance from City University of New York-Baruch College – Zicklin School of Business. Mayuri later worked as the Managing Director for Performics a leading digital media agency a part of the French group Publicis, Gurgaon, Haryana, India. Now comes the news about her appointment as the Head of Industry – Agency Business at Google India.
