Back when Vijay Mallya had dark hair, proper formal clothes and was mostly seen in horse racing and page 3 events instead of the front page, he was pretty much the “playa” in the Indian rich people scene.
In fact, in an interview from 1998, when someone asks him if he was anything like Donald Trump, his response was quite cheeky. “Nowhere near bankruptcy”, he said. You see, back then Drumpf was going through a rough financial patch. But look how the tides have turned – Trump is running for US Presidency and Mallya is absconding because he owes money to the banks.
