In a rare appearance since shifting base to the United Kingdom, troubled Indian business person Vijay Mallya was seen having a good time in London as he watched the Indian Premier League 2016 final between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
In a video gone viral, Mallya senior is seen having a gala time with his son Siddharth along with a few others. In the video, Siddharth also talks about Force India’s third place finish in the Monaco Grand Prix, which took place on the IPL 2016 final day.

“Here we are, watching together from London. It doesn’t get better than Sergio Perez getting a podium (for Mallya co-owned Force India). Hopefully, we can add to what has been an epic day of sports so far,” says Mallya junior in the video as he catches the IPL action with his father on the big screen. When Siddharth turns the camera on his father, “go RCB” says Mallya while rooting for his team.

Mallya, who owes more than Rs 9000 crore to Indian banks, had quit as RCB director days after stepping down as chairman of the United Spirits. However, he remains the chief mentor of the IPL side with Siddharth on its board.
India was not able to get Mallya deported as the UK asked India to seek his extradition instead. Mallya wanted in India by various authorities, has been in the UK since March. (With Inputs from PTI).
