His father, KK Modi, significantly expanded the family business.
In 1971, Modi enrolled at Bishop Cotton School in Shimla. Due to a kidnapping threat, his family later relocated him to St Joseph’s College in Nainital. He was expelled from St. Joseph’s for truancy in 1980 after leaving school to watch a movie. Modi studied electrical engineering and business administration in the United States between 1983 and 1986. He spent two years at Pace University in New York and one year at Duke University in North Carolina. He did not complete either of these programs. Modi returned to Delhi in 1986 to join the family business. From 1987 to 1991, he was President of International Tobacco Company Limited. On August 21, 1989, he was appointed as a Non-Executive and Non-Independent Director of Godfrey Phillips India, one of India’s largest tobacco companies and a joint venture between his family’s Modi Enterprises and Philip Morris International.
