It was nearly three decades ago that Dr. Dhananjay Datar, a young man from Akola in Maharashtra, went to Dubai and started a humble kirana store. That business in two and a half decades has become a huge Business Empire, with 23 entities spread across the Gulf.
Christened Masala King by the Sultan of Dubai, Dhananjay Datar, a Doctor in Business Administration, has been ranked No. 14 in the Arabian Business ranking covering the entire Gulf Countries and has been ranked No. 44 in the Forbes Middle East in the Arab world.
“I am proud to be a Indian,” says Dhananjay ‘Masala King’ Datar, Managing Director of the million Al Adil Group, now entering home market with Masala King Supermarket that will be launched in Kharghar by actor Karisma Kapoor.
Says Dhananjay Datar, “Karisma Kapoor was chosen to be the face of our inauguration as she represented the Indian woman of today, who is a perfect homemaker and yet is career-oriented. She a perfect-brandfit.”
