Vijay Mallya drops in at Virat's dinner, Team India hotfoots it home

Sources told TOI that his presence made the Indian team uncomfortable enough to leave a bit early.

This, however, isn't the first time that Mallya has taken a jibe at Indian media as well as government agencies that have failed to get him back from United Kingdom to put him under trial for defaulting loans worth Rs 9000 crores that he owes to several Indian banks via his now defunct Kingfisher Airlines.

Sachin Tendulkar and Alan Wilkins has also attended the event.

"The Indian team wasn't comfortable and they maintained a dignified distance from Mallya".
