Actress Aneesha Madhok, daughter of Abercrombie and Kent India’s MD Vikram Madhok, reflects on the significance of travel. She shares her recent and upcoming destinations, emphasizing the importance of exploring new places to broaden one’s perspective.
“I speak Spanish, Persian, Punjabi, Hindi, English and can read Greek and Hebrew. Thanks to my global exposure and travels. Learning about other perspectives, cultures and other languages can help our brain cells especially with brain plasticity. Exposure is a beneficial quality for success.”
After completing her Hollywood movie “Bully High” co-starring with Joseph Baena, son of Arnold Shwazzeneger, Aneesha was recently recording her upcoming songs in Greece and Italy, and now will be touring Incredible India.
Aneesha acknowledges the challenges many face in finding time for travel amidst the fast-paced nature of professional life and especially in this generation’s “burnout culture”, underlining the universal importance of these experiences.

She adds, “Travel is a relative word, it can mean visiting one’s own village (we call it pind in punjabi), visiting a pilgrimage or even international travels.”
As the daughter of a prominent figure in the luxury travel industry, Aneesha expresses gratitude for the opportunities her family connections have provided as she grew up surrounded by global influences. Despite the international element, Aneesha encourages people to travel first and foremost within India. “I would love to see tourism increase for India by 2024 and I encourage Indians to travel within the Incredible India and strengthen their roots, which in turn would help everyone accomplish their goals in whatever industry they are in and make India one of the strongest economies embedded with culture and intelligence.
The actress recognises the diverse ways in which people embark on their journeys whether it is the low budget trips, luxury trips, the meticulous planners or even impromptu adventure seekers.
On the backdrop of three challenging years for the tourism industry due to Covid, Aneesha celebrates the revival and expresses her happiness to witness the sector thriving again for Tourism.
