India's Trump

Vijay Mallya, it is revealed, is all set to become India's Donald Trump. According to, Mallya, described by them as the "flamboyant UB group emperor", will be the tycoon at the heart of the Indian version of NBC's reality show, The Apprentice. Apparently Anil Ambani was the first choice of Star TV, who own the rights for the Indian remake of the show. But, ahem, Ambani has other things on his mind these days.

Well, whoever gets the gig might well be turned into a doll, and I think it would be more fun hurling Mallya out of the window than Anil Ambani. Mukesh might disagree, of course.
