The clip then charts how an ambitious Rishi climbs the ladder of material success, becoming a successful business tycoon. In a contemplative moment, Rishi remembers how his father once warned him against becoming too money-minded, to which he scoffed and replied that he would rather be materialistic than end up like his father.
