Lalit Modi is a megalomanic. He also suffer from bouts of paranoia and we all know why. Now he blames Rupert Murdoch for the expose in Sunday Times as Murdoch wants to exit from Champions League. He thinks he is too important and all the big-wigs and even the UK Government has an agenda against him. But in reality he is just a tobacco seller. In the interview with Rajdeep Sardesai, Lalit Modi was bragging that he could easily get passport from any country. In fact he was haggling to buy one from Seychelles through a NRI racketeer – Sivasankaran.
Friendship with Lalit Modi is risky business and Rajasthan CM, Vasundhra Raje realized it today. Raje kept denying about giving any statement for Lalit Modi’s residency in UK but in the TV interview with Rajdeep Sardesai he spilled out that Vasundhra gave a written statement and much more. It was stupid enough on his part that MEA, Sushma Swaraj’s husband, Swaraj Kaushal and their daughter – Bansuri does not charge him legal fee. Kaushal has been his legal advisor for 22-years for gratis??? Come on!
Arrogance has been the main reason for Lalit Modi’s downfall. He picked-up on Sashi Tharoor not for Kochi franchise but for ‘Miss Bollywood’ selected in South Africa when IPL was held there. South African ‘Miss Bollywood‘ got intimate with then IMG honcho, Ravi Krishnan, which Modi couldn’t digest. Tharoor was the junior MEA those days and Lalit Modi wanted Tharoor to stop “Miss Bollywood’s” visa to India. Tharoor did not indulge and Modi made him his enemy.
Since Lalit Modi enjoys the blessings of BJP top-leaders, he should do something on Yoga – PM Modi’s pet project. He can use his network and get the global celebs like Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Paris Hilton and other randoms he partied with at Cuba to make International Yoga Day glamorous. SRK and other Bollywood types will follow and Keith Vaz can put in his hard ‘Labour’ and add to the chutzpah!
