Who is Vijay Mallya and what is his net worth?

Vijay Mallya is an Indian businessman and former Rajya Sabha member

He is the ex-chairman of United Spirits but currently continues to serve as chairman of United Breweries Group.

Mallya also served as chairman of Sanofi India and Bayer CropScience, among other companies.

Due to pending legal action, his net worth is unclear, but he lost his billionaire status in 2012.

Where is Vijay Mallya now and does he still own Kingfisher?

At present Mallya is fighting extradition back to India from the UK.

He is accused of fraud and money laundering in India.

Of all his businesses, Mallya's name is most closely associated with now defunct Kingfisher Airlines.

The airline company, launched in 2005, proved to be his undoing, as its business model floundered in 2008, when a global recession and soaring fuel prices brought it to a grinding halt. 

Facing heat from lenders following the collapse of the airline, Mallya fled to the UK in 2016.

Mallya has publicly offered to make good on his debts and said he has been doing so since 2016.

Who is Vijay Mallya's wife and how many children does he have?

Mallya married his second wife Rekha in 1993.

Before that he was married to Samira Tyabjee Mallya from 1986 to 87.

He has four children – Siddharth, Laila, Tanya and Leanna Mallya
