    In a 1998 interview with Nikki Bedi he was asked if he is India’s Trump to which he had replied he did not know trump personally but read about him, he lives his life like I do, but I am not near bankruptcy like him. One can only wonder how times change.

    On Tuesday outside a UK court, when Mallya was asked about him defaulting loans by a journalist of ANI, Mallya said “keep dreaming about billions of pounds”. Soon after this V K Singh, Minister of state for external affairs said that all necessary steps are being taken for extradition of Mallya back to India, and that no time frame could be predicted in which he would be brought back to India.
