This movie came in 2004 and starred Shilpa Shetty, Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan. Phir Milenge highlighted the sensitive topic of HIV positive and AIDS, it even tried to aware the people. Tamanna Sahni played by Shilpa Shetty who was a successful creative head of Big Ad agency was expelled from her office and was treated with biasedness when people came to know that she is HIV positive and had to suffer so much torture and humiliation of society, all this seemed o quite realistic, in our society when someone have this disease we label them with negative character traits.

  1. Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year

This was a big banner film under Yash Raj Productions starring Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role. It was a comedy and sarcastic film which focused on honest business practices versus corrupt practices. It basically deals with the marketing practices adopted by the company. Organizations basically work with the promise to give priority to customer satisfaction but actually it never happens and they resort to the practices of bribery.

And such practices  was condemned by Harpreet Singh Bedi played by Ranbir Kapoor, he was a B.Com graduate . He joins a big computer assembly and service company as a Salesperson. He disliked his company’s corrupt corporate culture where only through bribery contracts are acquired from clients, there is no importance of customer satisfaction. Thus he starts his own company with his own terms and conditions where even a tea guy was a leader and it fully on consumer gratification goals.
