Happy birthday to Vijay Mallya, the King of Good Times. Even though he is supposed to be going through exactly the opposite, he still managed to flee with the good times. He has been the chairman of many companies, right from Bayer CropScience to Sanofi to United Spirits and currently UB Group. He was a great businessman, until he became a financial fraud with scandals and controversies emerging since 2012. Much like opening a can of worms.

Currently, a group of 17 Indian banks are trying to collect around INR 9,000 crore in loans, which Mallya has allegedly routed, to gain 100% or a partial stake, in about 40 companies across the world. Yes, 9,000 crore! So how did he respond? Like a true kingfisher, he flew away. He actually took off in March this year, saying he wanted to "move to Britain to be closer to his children." Yeah, right! Anyway, on his 61st birthday today, let's take a look at some interesting facts about the man.


So, apparently, he has never taken a day off. Seems like he's taking all of them at once right now.


He always reaches at a specific 'lucky' time for any event. He also goes on the Sabarimala pilgrimage every year. He also visited Tirupati before his Kingfisher aircraft would take off, although the prayers didn't help in this case.

Berry Old
He uses a BlackBerry. Really, Mallya? Even the teenagers stopped using those black boxes since what seems like eons ago.

In 2004, he placed the winning bid of 175,000 pounds for Tipu Sultan's sword, at an auction in London, and brought it back to India. In 2009, he won the bid for the belongings of Gandhi's belongings at USD 1.8 million, at a New York auction. He said that he had "bid for the country”. Which country, mate? The same one you abandoned?

Red or dead
His favourite colour is red. Whether it's the teams he owns or the brands he owns, they are usually themed in red. And now, he's making the country see red.

Empress of Good Times
He owns the Indian Empress yacht, one of the world’s biggest yachts. It was previously owned by the Qatari Royal Family and so you can imagine what it comprises. While his yacht is afloat, seems like his other possessions are going down.
