Rebel Zabi: The Electrifying Man of Mandya
Leslie Caron, the ever-gracious French actress, once stated,
“Cinema will always have an important role to play in society,” which remains
true to date. Cinema serves to entertain and educate the public regarding
numerous diverse topics in various methods of filming. The actors play the most
important role in selling the film successfully with their acting, dancing,
dialogue speaking, and other skills, enthralling the audience and engaging
their senses and feelings into a whole new world. Cinephiles develop an interest
in these celebrities, becoming their fans and imitating their actions.
Mandya, an enchanting and calm town located in Karnataka,
the Sandalwood State, has a dedicated fanbase for Sandalwood’s Rebel Star,
Ambarish. His birthdays are celebrated with great joy and his death is mourned
deeply, with his fans doing charity work, like feeding the poor and donating
clothes. Rebel Zabi is one such deep admirer of Ambarish, to the extent that
he’s named his company as ‘Rebel Star Ambarish Electrical’ in his honour. Born in
KR Pete Taluk of Mandya in 1977 to a loving family where income was meagre,
Zabi pursued his studies with passion till seventh standard, as financial
restraints strained the family’s ability to afford school fees. Without losing
an ounce of hope and faith, Zabi began to assist various electricians and
electric shops till he became a master himself.
Obtaining a license turned out to be an uphill battle for
Rebel Zabi, as the authorities refused to register his company, which had a
filmstar’s name. They stated that the permission of Ambarish was necessary to
complete the registration process. Even though the Rebel Star was residing in
Delhi at that moment, Zabi travelled there and got the documents typed and set.
He relentlessly pursued his search till he met Ambarish, who granted the
permission. This cleared the remaining obstacles to establishing ‘Rebel Star
Ambarish Electricals’ in 1996.
Under the expert guidance and vision of Rebel Zabi, ‘ Rebel
Star Ambarish Electical’ went from upgrading and repairing minor issues to
providing services for houses and complexes. It even works for the local
farmer’s department with services like fixing and installing transformers and
light poles with the materials provided by the department. Inspired by
Ambarish, who was a well-known philanthropist, the company provides free
lighting and electricity to people who are unable to afford it by installing
light poles and other electrical equipment, even cross-verifying to ensure the
customer’s not lying about its income.
Rebel Zabi walked from KR Pete to Ramanagar, to support
Ambarish’s first political stint. In Ramanagar, as he asked for directions,
some people picked him up with them and went to the location where Ambarish was
residing, and reported to him about Zabi’s journey and purpose. Ambarish
ensured he was well taken care of, and also gave him his number and address.
Since then, they have maintained a close relationship over the decades till
Ambarish’s unfortunate death in 2018.
Rebel Zabi aspires to keep the legacy of Rebel
Star Ambarish alive with his hard work, philanthropy, and indiscrimination. He
helps the poor by providing and installing free electricity in their houses,
has also contributed to the construction of Shree Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth
Kshetra with Ambarish Sena Samiti, and with them, feeds the poor and needy
meals on Ambarish’s birthday. We at Icons of Indian Business wish him the best
in his endeavors and hope he always attains success and stays at the top with
consistency, hard work, and determination.
