Satya Nadella is a very famous CEO from India who runs Microsoft, one of the biggest tech companies. He’s getting a lot of attention on social media because he’s focusing on helping Indian developers make AI products for the market in India. People have known about Satya Nadella for a long time, but only a few know about his wife. He gave up his green card so they could be together in the United States.
Satya Nadella married Anupama Nadella when he was already allowed to live in the US permanently. But Anupama’s visa application was rejected, so they could only spend short periods together with tourist visas. To make it easier for Anupama to stay in the US, Satya Nadella gave up his green card and got a different visa.
Anupama, also called Anu, was born in New Delhi. Her father was an officer in India’s civil service. She studied architecture in Hyderabad and decided to focus on taking care of their children instead of working as an architect.
Anupama and Satya Nadella have three kids, but they faced a tragedy when their 26-year-old son Zain passed away in 2022. He had cerebral palsy, so Anupama has been working closely with a hospital in Seattle to help children with health problems.
She donated a large amount of money to help farmers and women in a district in Andhra Pradesh, India. She also gave money to the Prime Minister’s relief fund during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Satya Nadella earns a lot of money from his job as CEO of Microsoft. In the year 2021-2022, he earned nearly 55 million dollars, which is about 450 crore rupees. His total net worth is around 6200 crore rupees.
