The famed Harvard Business School (HBS) has done a case study on Indian film production company Excel Entertainment, the banner behind movies like "Dil Chahta Hai", "Rock On!!" and "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara".

The company, co-owned by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, is the centre of a case study, which will be taught to second year MBA students at HBS in early 2013.

Confirming the development, Sidhwani said: "It's a huge honour for any organisation."

Earlier this year, Sidhwani was invited to speak at the Harvard India Conference 2012, held at the university's campus in Boston. His talk gave them a good insight, and they decided to take it further by doing a case study.

Mukti Khaire, associate professor at HBS flew down to Mumbai from Boston for a week and was the faculty lead on the case.

Khaire worked closely with Namrata Arora, associate director, Harvard University South Asia Initiative, during the case-writing process on Excel Entertainment.

As part of their research, they did extensive interviews with Farhan, Sidhwani and other key members of the Excel Entertainment team.

    That's fantastic. If I ever get a chance in life I would definitely like to have some sorta degree/certification from Harvard. Having that name on my resume would be the biggest honor for me.
