Tycoon Mallya spotted at Kohli's charity dinner

Vijay Mallya sat in the VIP stands for India vs Pakistan at ICC Champions Trophy

While there were many renowned persons in attendance at the highly-anticipated match, it was a photo of Mallya in the VIP stand at Edgbaston stadium that was widely reported by both TV and print media. In a blatant display of arrogance, he tweeted that he will participate in all future games the team plays.

Kingfisher founder, who defaulted on loans to the tune of Rs 9000 crores, added that he intends to attend all matches of India during the tournament.

The Liquor baron was caught on cameras quite a number of times on TV and social media had buzz over the pictures of Mallya watching the match yesterday.

Not just that, but his presence compels the Indian team to leave early so that they don't run into him at the function.

Social media rushes to define Trump's 'covfefe' tweet
Now that the trip is history, though, it's clear the presidential tweeter is back in full, with " covfefe " and more. Trump poked fun at the typo, tweeting around 6 a.m., "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"??? ".

However, Mallya appears to be unperturbed by the criticism over his presence and vowed to attend all the remaining India matches against Sri Lanka on June 8 (Thursday) and South Africa on June 11 (Sunday). He was the former owner of the IPL franchise Royal Challenger's Banglore, a minority stakeholder in United Spirits and Kingfisher Airlines. "Its commitment to bring an end to slavery is vital and inspirational and so close to my heart", Kohli was quoted on the Justice and Care charity event page.

A top BCCI official said that, "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. "They can not ask him to leave or turn their back on him if he wants to have a conversation".

The tycoon was arrested by the Scotland Yard on April 19 on an extradition warrant but was granted bail within a few hours.
