Former ‘King of Good Times’ liquor baron Vijay Mallya is reportedly set to tie the knot with longtime girlfriend Pinky Lalwani in London.
If you look at a picture of them together, the age difference is pretty much evident as the 62-year-old Mallya will tie the knot with a much younger Lalwani.
The couple met in 2011 when Lalwani was hired by Mallya for the now-defunct Kingfisher airlines. If marriage reports are true, this will be the third marriage for Mallya even though his marriage with second wife is still on.
The connection between Mallya’s soon-to-be bride and first wife is quite uncanny as they both served in the aviation industry as air hostesses. The first wife was Sameera Tyabjee and second wife (who he is still legally married to) is Rekha Mallya, a childhood friend. He has three kids from his previous marriages, a son named Siddharth and two daughters, Leanna and Tanya.
Mallya and Lalwani are dating since they set their eyes on each other. Reportedly, the two even celebrated third anniversary of their relationship. It is said that both were living together since long.
The former liquor baron is currently facing charges of fraud and money laundering amounting to around Rs 9,000 crores. He is on bail until April 2 on a bond of 650,000 pounds.
