In recent years, four industrialists have occupied newspaper headlines for either scamming investors, defaulting on massive loans or borrowing vast sums of money through underhanded means. They are Vijay Mallya (who borrowed massive sums to expand Kingfisher Airlines but quit the country before repaying loans), Subrata Roy (who ran an elaborate ponzi scheme), Nirav Modi (who laundered money he borrowed from a public bank) and Ramalinga Raju. It was only a matter of time before a streaming platform commissioned a docu-series on them. Netflix did just that. Bad Boy Billionaires: India is an investigative series into the lives and activities of these four men.
Netflix withdrew the trailer after Subroto Roy Sahara went to court over the use of his name in the show.
The show will drop on Wednesday, September 2.
