Mumbai: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a conversation on Tuesday said to Reliance Industry chief Mukesh Ambani praised Dhirubhai Ambani.

Both of them also discussed about a range of topics from connectivity in the times of a pandemic to India’s digital mission.

“You know, going back to Reliance, one of the great business stories in history, your father founded Reliance Industries and he has this incredible legacy here in India. And now I’ve read that, he once held up a postcard in his office and said, if every Indian could speak with each other at the cost of this postcard, where will India be? And now your father clearly had a vision for where things were heading in the country, and because today Indians can communicate with one another for less than the cost of a postcard, and that’s what we’ve tried to do with messaging,” said Zuckerberg to Ambani at the Facebook Fuel for India 2020 event.

“But I am curious, before we get into UPI and more on that, what’s the most important thing that you learned from your father and his legacy, that has helped you build these amazing businesses and get to where they are today?” asked the Facebook chief.

Following which Ambani replied and said that his father in 2000 motivated them all to make voice calls at the same cost as a postcard. “In 2020, we’re very proud that Jio has pioneered free voice. So, all the 400 million people are a tribute to his vision. They are on our network and have a free voice,” he said.
