A few days I had written about why I felt Kalanidhi Maran will soon become the richest man in the world. I could not help smiling when Forbes magazine announced their 2010 top 50 Indians based on their net worth. Kalanidhi Maran has jumped up to 17th position with a net worth of 4 billion dollars.
Kalanidhi Maran shot to limelight outside the realms of South India, with his acquisition of Spice Jet Airlines earlier this year.
Sun TV Network’s stake is also up 45% this year and everything appears to be going in the right direction for him. Rajinikanth’s latest movie, Robot (Endhiran) is also produced by Sun Pictures. If that also becomes a box office hit, it will just help Kalandhi Maran’s net worth go up more.
It might be a suprise to many, but ever since I started tracking Kalanidhi Maran’s progress five years ago, I continue to believe that he will be the richest man in the world. Right now he is around the 200th rank in the world and it is just a matter of time before which he will end up in the top 10 and soon after that we will see him on the top.
I strongly believe that Kalanidhi Maran will become the richest man in the world very soon – If you think it might not happen, please feel free to comment and let me know what you think.
