He is just a commerce graduate from St Joseph’s College in Bengaluru, which is his home city. However, his brother Rishad has two Ivy League degrees hanging on his wall. During the initial days of his career, Tariq had also worked at a BPO after his graduation for a while. Later on he joined PremjiInvest.
Tariq and Nandini were engaged in 2015. Nandini is the daughter of art collector Kavita and industrialist Jasjit Singh. Later on, after few months, it was called off.
