James Bond, rock star, entrepreneur extraordinaire…over the relatively less number of years of his life, Rohit Reddy or RR as he’s known, has earned many pseudonyms – all true, be it in flair, flamboyance, fashion sense, or his meteoric rise as one of the top businessmen in Hyderabad. The Aston Martin that he zips around in on the ground or the Cessna on which he chases the clouds, conceals the true story – one of transformation, passion, vision, grit and determination – to prove himself and do his family and friends proud.
In the early 2000, he was known to fly to Mumbai practically on a whim – either for an evening soiree or for a hair-cut appointment with his favourite stylist. Fast forward 17 years and you see that things haven’t changed much. He still flies at a whim, except now he flies to Thailand to source plants for landscaping or to Delhi for a quick consult with an award-winning architect for a distinctive detailing of a contemporary Jaali clad façade for his pet project – The Signature One!
Signature One – is a project bar none. It exemplifies style and luxury, and a lifestyle that only a select few even aspire to. At a time when most other builders are downsizing or are moving to budget homes, Rohit envisaged a residential address that stood a cut above even the best in terms of luxury and a price to match, much like his mentor Donald Trump, who delivered the Trump Towers in Manhattan, the likes of which were not seen before.
The tour of Signature One starts right at the parking lot, the tour guide (if you are lucky) being none other than Rohit Reddy himself, with a pride that he doesn’t even try to conceal. The neatness, symmetry and detailing of the parking lot itself is jaw-dropping, a sneak peek at what is to be expected inside.
For RR, Signature One is just the start. His next ventures and projects are off the drawing board. One just needs to wait to watch what this extraordinary scion will deliver next.
Raising the bar is his mantra – be it for himself, his fitness goals or his next project.
RR was a start-up-preneur – even before the term was officially coined; he was the vision behind one of the first designer stores in Hyderabad – STRIP that stocked fashion icons such as Manish Malhotra, Akki Narula, Rocky S, Tarun Tahiliani, Surily Goel, Rohit Bal, Nandita Mathani, Rohit and Rahul Khanna. The store was among the first to sell designer party wear from London and Hong Kong. He built and sold Visual Vistas, an animation company when animation was just a squiggle in the minds of Indian film makers.
Rohit Reddy is truly a visionary, he not only envisages, he delivers his dreams. He truly exemplifies a leading young entrepreneur of India. He was a believer of “Make in India” even before Mr. Modi made it his mantra.
Big things are expected from RR. His journey has just begun…Watch this space to see more.
