Vanisha Mittal & Amit Bhatia Have Separated

Vanisha Mittal_Amit Bhatia WeddingWhen the world’s richest Indian – Lakshmi Mittal’s only daughter, Vanisha Mittal got married to Delhi lad, Amit Bhatia, it was expected that it would beat all records of ‘Big Fat Indian Weddings’. LN Mittal reportedly spent $78 Million in his daughter’s wedding in June 2004.

xpa51zAlas the wedding did not even last 10 years. Last year Vanisha Mittal Bhatia filed for divorce from Amit Bhatia. Whether the divorce petition has finally become a divorce decree is not yet known. I tried my various London sources to find out about the reason behind the rift and most of them who hobnobbed with the couple said that it was simply a case of a ‘prodigal son-in-law’.

Amit Bhatia used to be on the Board of his pop-in-law’s football team – Queens Park Rangers (QPR) FC. Lakshmi Niwas Mittal had 34% stake in QPR but that was bought over by Tony Fernandez of Air Asia. Tony’s Air Asia is taking off in India from 12th of June and Amit Bhatia’s father, Arun Bhatia’s Telestra Tradeplace has 21% stake in the venture with Tatas owning 30% and Tony Fernandez having 49%. Gossip mill believes that Arun Bhatia’s 21% stake in Air Asia is nothing but Laksmi Mittal’s money.

    What a parable.
    WoW suchaaa dhamaka narrative at fashScan.
    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh… Hoooooooooo
    I love such spice.
    Bhatia’s been always greedy thought i have seen Renu from a distance and if am i not wrong, she needs a peck on her SNOOBY FACE.
    Waise bhi, she doesn’t possess very (hi class) good features.
    Bhatia’s been surmounted with MITTAL tag.
    On the other hand, Mittal’s are very down to earth guys. I got one chance to meet the whole family at a luxury store opening at TajPalace with a fashionShow.
    I politely requested Mittal Sr for a photu (photo) oppurtunity. What to do man. Here I don’t care for BigB though Dilip Kumar could be an exception, but here I was just hobnobbing with Mittal’s. On the other side there were Jaya B & her didi Kumari Pankaja w/o of Amar Singh sitting with Tina Ambani.
    Do you know what Mr. Lakshmi said?
    ‘I am not Shahrukh Khan. I am just a businessman’ and while finishing the second line of our one single chat, he immediately picked out his business card just like some phoren englishman with a big smile on his sparkling set of teeth and made me happy that night.
    I still have that card with me but never dared to call his private number.
    Mujhko unnse kaam bhi kya ho sakta tha!!!
    So cut to cut with immense pleasure (fashScan already did) its been understandable that this couple has proved once again that such heavy duty tamasha shaadi will sustain or heads for curtailment… hmmmmmm… i am doubtful.
    I swear on all the fattu wedding I have witnessed though I crashed Chatwal’s (How & why??? Another story, someOther day please).
    So be it Karisma clutched in wannabe Kaput Kapur family or Priya SachDev’s wannabe star struck antics to rub shoulders with hollywood via Vikram or here it’s the case of prodigal son-in-law.
    Ohhhhhh.
    My bye bye for tonite.

    Aapki bhooki God Shareef.
    I lick blood of wanabe moneyMongers.
    Yummy yummy.

    Meri pyaari God_Shareef, L Mittal ki badi fan ho gayi tu to πŸ™‚

    woh kaunsa sant hai, he gave you card so that you can contact him for business(pleasure) stuff, Don’t you remember who is sponsoring the Ultra luxury lifestyle of Mallika Shera? He has stashed away many such chhoris in many cities of the world and they just makes themselves available whenever he wants.

    Maybe this is your golden chance of upgrading you car to a Bentley as you wished earlier πŸ™‚

    Hey jack.. Why didnt you post my comment asking about this marriage in your previous post?

  5. Melody

    Jack, since u and God Shareef know a lot about the dark lives of celebrities, I suggest you to get together and author a book, which I offer to get published. Not kidding..

  6. Sam

    Hey, This is nerdy comment they pics don’t come clear when clicked on them on your web page.

  7. Emma

    Jack I need to contact you about something, please could you contact me on [email protected]?

    Many thanks,

    Emma

    Considering their wedding was such a globally high profile event, it’s surprising that the divorce hasn’t hit headlines in major media outlets. Any reason Jack?

  9. SG

    I’m sure Lakshmi Mittal must have paid the media to not publish the news. Even Amit Bhatia’s twitter feeds doesnt give any indication.

  10. FK

    Jack, the multi crore Monaco wedding of Fabiani – Assoumal is in trouble. Please write about it.

  11. PInky

    @FK, heard this through the grapevine, apparently both of them aren’t living together anymore… Guess who is responsible MIL Sangeetha? Well Kajal and Sangeetha anyways never got along much!!

  12. Call_me_whatever

    K and G may have split a while back– their friends have been talking about it since many months. Pity, this happened, K is a lovely girl and I don’t think MIL Mrs Assomull is the reason– an insider told me the husband’s ways weren’t okay.

    Wishing K the best. Jack this is your blog, and the decision is all yours, but I think you should give the couple some privacy at this time. Her friend mentioned she is going through some stress, and a post on FS might add to it….. this is only my personal opinion.

  13. Inquisitive

    Hi Jack
    Just saw a picture of Vanisha n Amit attending the Neil Diamond show. Are they back together?

  14. jack Post author

    What will Amit do without pop-in-law’s moolah??? It’s more of a mutually beneficial arrangement than a marriage. Living under one roof and making social appearances is the best way to quell small-talk about a traditional Marwari tycoon’s family. Sweep thing under the carpet and show all is hunky-dory!!!
