Husband of Chanda Kochhar
After completing her education from Rajasthan, Chanda Kochhar shifted to Mumbai. She was then known as Chanda Advani (her maiden name). She took admission in Jamna Lal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies. There she met Deepak Kochhar, her classmate. Both of them were close friends during their college life. However, just after the completion of their study, Deepak proposed Chanda. At that time, Chanda had joined ICICI and was looking textile and paper industries portfolios. She was then a management trainee, and was loaded to oversee the financial status of many big projects. She was short of time, and hence apologized Deepak. They remained close friends. After two years, it was Chanda who proposed Deepak, and he instantly accepted the proposal. Soon, both of them tied the knot. They have one son and one daughter.
There is no denying that the rise of Chanda Kochhar in ICICI Bank is quite spectacular. She showed her potential to crack deals under K V Kamath, who trusted her (and, Shikha Sharma). It was Kamath who had given so many responsibilities to these two ladies, and both of them had never disappointed him. ICICI Bank won lots of acclaim under Chanda Kochchar. Her husband Deepak remained a strong support for her. He gave her everything that may be required for an Indian woman to become so much successful.
