Rishi Sunak is also the husband of Akshata Murthy, daughter of Infosys co-founder and veteran businessman Narayan Murthy. Ever since the news of Rishi Sunak becoming the Prime Minister of Britain has come, since then Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murthy are being searched a lot on the internet.
What did Sunak’s father-in-law say?

He said he was proud of hearing and wished him all the success. He said that we are confident that Sunak will give his best performance for the people of Britain.
Akshata Murthy belongs to a business family. Akshata is the only daughter of Infosys co-founder and India’s leading businessmen NR Narayana Murthy and Sudha Murthy. Akshata also has a brother named Rohan. Rohan is also the founder of Soroko. Rishi Sunak was surrounded many times in Britain on the dispute related to his wife’s business and tax, but he defended his wife and in-laws every time. So let’s know many important things about Akshata Murthy and how she met the sage for the first time.
Akshata Murthy was born in 1980. After birth, Akshata’s parents shifted to Mumbai in connection with work and left Akshata to live with her grandparents.
In a letter to Akshata, her father had written that, both your mother and I were young at that time and were trying to establish their feet in career. This letter has also been written about in “Legacy; Letters from eminent parents to their daughter”.
Akshata’s father wrote in this letter, ‘Two months after you were born in Hubballi, we brought you to Mumbai but we soon realized the importance of raising a child and managing a career simultaneously. It was a difficult task to do. So we decided that you will live in Hubli with your grandparents in the initial days of your life.
Akshata’s father NR Narayana Murthy had told that it was a very difficult decision for her to leave Akshata with her grandparents. Every weekend he would take a flight to Belgaum and then take a car rental from the airport to Hubli. Even though it would have been very expensive to do so, Narayanmurthy could not live without seeing his daughter.
Akshata’s mother is Sudha Murthy, a computer scientist and engineer. Sudha was the first woman engineer to work for Tata, India’s largest carmaker. Now Sudha is working to improve public healthcare.
When Akshata came back to her parents again, her life was not as easy as it used to be while living in Hubli with her grandparents.
Every day between 8 pm and 10 pm, Akshata and Rohan used to do their school homework and their parents used to read physics, maths, engineering and history books or do office work in the meantime.
Gradually Akshata’s family moved towards prosperity but still Akshata’s parents kept a regular autorickshaw instead of a private car to take her to school and bring her back. Akshata became friends with many of Akshata’s friends while going to school every day by autorickshaw, even Akshata became friends with the uncle of the rickshaw.
Akshata went to the private liberal Claremont McKenna College in California, where she studied economics and French, before attending the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. He also worked at Deloitte and Unilever before pursuing his MBA at Stanford University.

Akshata’s father said, ‘When Akshata told me about her new life partner for the first time, I felt very bad and felt jealous. But when I met Rishi and found him to be brilliant, handsome and most importantly honest, I understood why Akshata loved him.
After Stanford, Akshata joined the Fund, a Dutch clean technology incubator in San Francisco in 2007 as marketing director, but left to start her own fashion label, (Akshata Designs).
In an interview given to the Times of India in 2009, Akshata had said, “Looking at the success of my parents, everyone asks whether I will also achieve such achievements in my life… but I am sure that” One day this business will grow and I will be able to do something on my own. In the interview, Akshata had also said that this is my passion and I cannot even think of paying attention to anything other than this. However, this business of Akshata fell within 3 years.
