Outspoken filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma has 'advised' Vijay Mallya to send his bikini beauties to the banks to square off all his debts

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma (RGV) is known for his outspoken comments on social media. The Bollywood director who regularly gets flak for his controversial statements has gone ahead and done it again.

Vijay Mallya is in the news and shooting from the lip, as usual, RGV has 'advised' the liquor baron on how to repay his debts to the banks.

Now, one would assume RGV's series of posts on micro blogging site, Twitter, on how the banks can recover the money owed to them by Mallya are jokes. But they seem in bad taste.

RGV tweeted, "I think Vijay Mallya should dip into his personal bank and give one bikini beauty each to every bank he owes and square off all his debts."

He tweeted next, "The banks might not agree to Vijay Mallya's bikini proposal but the bankers might.”

“If the money he borrowed is what created properties of his bikini clad girls, wouldn’t they be enough payback for the bankers? Just asking,” RGV's third tweet in the thread read.

The filmmaker suggests that Mallya's 'bikini beauties' from Bollywood like Deepika Padukone, Nargis Faqri, Katrina Kaif and Esha Gupta were a part of the security for the banks and the bankers will therefore not complain, but be completely swayed.

"And am sure that the bikini beauties of Vijay Mallya were a huge part of the security for the banks and hence the bankers can’t complain,” read the tweet.

“I think Mallya’s calendar girls Deepika Padukone, Nargis Faqri, Esha Gupta, Katrina Kaif etc etc contributed to the bankers being swayed,” RGV continues.

Vijay Mallya is the Chairman of the now defunct Kingfisher Airlines, which owes Rs 9,091.4 crore, including interest, to 17 banks, according to a statement made by Arun Jaitley in Parliament.

Mallya and his firms are under the scanner of multiple investigative agencies in the country with Mallya being termed a "willful defaulters”. While the CBI is investigating Kingfisher and Mallya for defaulting on a Rs 900-crore loan from IDBI Bankm, the Enforcement Directorate has registered a case against Mallya for alleged money laundering.
