A fugitive from his own country, where he’s arraigned on money-laundering and unp­aid loans charges...one would have tho­ught all Vijay Mallya was doing was att­­­ending court hearings with a grim face. No sir; boys from the good times club do things fruitful. Doesn’t Mal­lya’s rum­oured, impending marriage with former Kingfisher air-­­­­­­hos­­tess Pinky Lalwani prove this?
