Bollywood has everything – action, drama, comedy and, as we recently found out, advice! It is true. Often we miss the interesting and insightful messages because we get engrossed in the movie.
Cafemutual puts together the messages for advisors embedded in some of the famous Bollywood dialogues.
"Aaj mere paas gaadi hai, bungla hai, paisa hai...tumhare paas kya hai?" – AMITABH BACHCHAN "Mere paas, mere paas...Maa hai!" – SHASHI KAPOOR
This iconic dialogue in Deewar, will probably be remembered for years to come. But did you realise when Shashi Kapoor says, “Mere paas maa hai,” he is asserting what, in his opinion, is most valuable. Similarly, advisors must also know what your true value proposition is. This will help attract the right type of clients and build your business.
"Kitne aadmi thhe?" – AMJAD KHAN aka GABBAR SINGH
An IFA needs to know his clients’ family; always ask your clients about their dependants. This will help you make a more comprehensive plan. Always remember Gabbar when you meet with your client. Knowing if your client has only dependent children, or dependent parents too, will make a huge difference in his financial plan. Even if your client doesn’t have dependent parents at the time of onboarding, knowing his parents’ age and medical condition will help you plan for future contingencies.
Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (1995)
"Bade bade shehron mein aisi chhoti chhoti baatein hoti rehti hain." – SHAH RUKH KHAN
This classic line from Shah Rukh Khan’s romantic all-time hit is one that will strike a chord with all advisors. After all, whenever a regulatory change hits us, we just have to roll with the punch. The dialogue stands good even when advisors have to deal with clients who get worried about market volatility. When you face such clients, just tell them how market volatility works and motivate them to stay invested to avail of the long-term benefits.
“Ek baar jo maine commitment kar di, fir main apne aap ki bhi nahi sunta." – SALMAN KHAN
Probably the most relevant of all Bollywood dialogues, an advisor must always stick to his commitment. It might be something as simple as calling a person exactly when you promised to, or managing an investment. No matter what the commitment, this dialogue from Salman Khan starrer is gospel to advisors.
By honouring all your commitments, you win your client’s trust and earn the respect of your peers.
These are only a few gems among Bollywood hit dialogues. We would love to hear from you about your favourite film dialogues and what you learnt from them.
