Business Tycoon Anil Ambani has told a UK court that he has only one car and has sold his jewellery to pay his legal fees, Times of India reported.
He said that he had received Rs 9.9 crore for all his jewellery and now does not own anything. When he was asked about the luxury cars he had access to, Ambani said that they were all media-speculative stories.
My expenses are minimal and being borne by wife and family. I don’t have a lavish lifestyle and no other income. I met legal expense by sale of jewellery and, if I have to meet further expenses, (it) will be subject to approval by the court to dispose of other assets
This had led to a serious discussion on Twitter. All warranted, of course.

Why else would the government give Rafale offset contract worth 30,000 cr to bankrupt Ambani instead of HAL . #Ambani #AnilAmbani #Rafale #HAL https://t.co/zNA8qLd271
#AnilAmbani bankrupt is a systems jokeon the public. The rich tweaking rules & #corrupt #government supporting them. Big time public fails these people by stopping to use their products. It can be any govt, I am not mentioning any particular party here.#Ambani #Corruption— Nikhil Gangavane (@thefinalmiracle) September 26, 2020
