The Caribbean star appears to have bumped into Mallya during the Formula One qualifying session at the Silverstone Grand Prix and now his photo has got everyone talking online. With memes and sarcastic jokes, people are now taking a jibe at Mallya.
Earlier this year, Vijay Mallya had told the Bombay High Court that by declaring him a fugitive economic offender and allowing attachment of his assets, a special court had awarded him an “economic death penalty”.
The Indian government had provided an assurance that the death penalty would not apply in their case and also some additional assurances, which came in later than the timeframe stipulated by the court.
Mallya also repeated his offer of a 100 per cent payback to state-owned Indian banks to cover the debt of Kingfisher Airlines. "Please take the money. With the balance, I also want to pay employees and other creditors and move on in life," he said.
Earlier in the day, Mallya also posted a picture of himself with son Sidhartha Mallya on Twitter and wrote, "Great to watch cricket with my son and even sweeter to see India’s emphatic victory over Australia. Congratulations to @imVkohli and his team."
