Beleaguered liquor baron Vijay Mallya gate crashed into a charity ball hosted by India captain Virat Kohli on Monday night in London. Yes, you read that right! Absconder Mallya, who is wanted in India over unpaid debts to the tune of Rs 9000 crore, was spotted at a charity event where the whole Indian Cricket team was present.
Vijay Mallya, who was recently spotted enjoying India’s match against Pakistan at the Edgbaston on Sunday, surprised everyone with his visit. However, the national cricket teammates including the skipper maintained a safe distance from him. Believe it or not, the Indian Cricketers left the event as early as possible in order to avoid any controversy.(London Terror Attack: B-Town Celebs Parineeti To Anushka Express Their Grief For The Victims)
In fact, BCCI source present at the event revealed that Kohli and the Indian team were “uncomfortable” due to Mallya’s presence. It was also cleared that neither BCCI nor Virat invited Mallya at the event. The who invited him?
“Look, Virat or his foundation never invited Mallya at the function. But normally what happens at the charity dinner is that someone who has bought a table is entitled to invite his guests. Similarly, someone who bought a table must have invited him,” a top BCCI source present at the function said.
“The Indian team wasn’t comfortable and they maintained a dignified distance from Mallya. Mallya’s presence is one of the reasons that team left early. The players were very uncomfortable. It was an unavoidable situation as one couldn’t have possibly asked him to leave,” the source further added.
