Danny Denzongpa, also known as Tsering Phintso, is a well-known Sikkimese actor who has had a huge impact on Bollywood over the past 50 years. Apart from his great playing career in films such as 'Baby', 'Indian', 'Hum', 'Bang Bang', and others, Danny entered the brewing industry and founded Yuksom Breweries in South Sikkim in 1987. 

About Yuksom Breweries

In 2005, he expanded his brewing activities by founding Denzong Breweries in Odisha, and four years later, he acquired Rhino Agencies in Assam. These three breweries have a combined annual production capacity of 6.8 lakh hectoliters, making Yuksom one of India's leading beer firms. Dansberg and He-Man 9000 are among their most popular brands. Yuksom Breweries reportedly contributes Rs 100 crore to the northeastern region's economy every year and employs 250 people.

Danny saw the acquisition of Rhino Agencies in 2009 as a key milestone. During that time, Vijay Mallya hoped to enter the northeast market, and United Breweries planned to acquire Rhino, a newly established brewery in Assam. To protect its market dominance in the region, Yuksom preemptively acquired Rhino. This clever action not only strengthened Danny's position in the market but also thwarted Vijay Mallya's development goals.
