NEW DELHI: Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani especially ventures into restaurants to gorge on dosa and street food. UK-based Vedanta Group chief Anil Agarwal cannot do without pure vegetarian khana. Similarly, GMR Group chairman GM Rao remembers being ragged often in engineering college for his all-vegetarian diet. Successful, rich and powerful - these billionaire business tycoons, however, prefer leading a life on simple vegetarian food.
In fact, a SundayET study has revealed that a majority of the billionaire Indians belong to the die-hard vegetarian club. And the buck just doesn’t stop there. A quick dip stick survey of some of the top 30 Sensex company heads further reveals that most of the names in this list too swear by an all-vegetarian diet. And the personal networth of these vegetarians too boasts of impressive figures.
As of September 26, while Mukesh Ambani has a personal networth of Rs 1,93,589 cr, the networth of Reliance Communication chairman Anil Ambani stands at Rs 1,09,677 cr. On the other hand, Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumaramangalam Birla’s personal fortune stands at Rs 28,944 cr, and Mahindra and Mahindra MD Anand Mahindra, also a vegetarian, has a personal fortune of Rs 4,519 cr. ACC chairman N S Sekhsarai has a networth of Rs 4915 cr!
