Freshworks CEO Books 2,200 Tickets For Rajinikanth’s ‘Jailer’
SAN MATEO, CA (IANS) – Chennai-born and California-headquartered global software-as-a-service company Freshworks has booked 2,200 tickets for its employees of the Rajinikanth starrer ‘Jailer’ that was released in theatres on August 10.
The Nasdaq-listed SaaS firm’s Founder and CEO Girish Mathrubootham posted this information on social media. “2,200 tickets, 7 screens, Freshworks employees only,” Mathrubhootam informed.
Freshworks operates around the world to serve thousands of customers including All Birds, Blue Nile, Bridgestone, Databricks, Klarna, NHS, OfficeMax, and PhonePe.
The Nasdaq-listed firm was valued at $12.2 billion after it opened 21 percent above the initial offering price of $36 apiece in September 2021.
Founded by Mathrubootham and Shan Krishnasamy as Freshdesk in Chennai in 2010, the company started its journey as a helpdesk software for customer support.
It decided to rebrand itself to Freshworks in June 2017 to incorporate the company’s growing software suite.
Several companies in South India declared a holiday on August 10, the release date of ‘Jailer.’
Not just in Chennai or Madurai, offices in cities such as Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Thanjavur, Vishakapatnam, Mysuru, Ellore, Thiruvananthapuram, and Kochi also declared holidays, with many big companies handing out free tickets to their employees so that they can watch the film.
