Liquor baron Vijay Mallya made an appeal to netizens saying his son Siddharth Mallya should not be targetted or dragged into any controversy.
In a series of tweets, the 'king of good times' said, "My son Sid does not deserve all this hatred and abuse. He has had nothing to do with my business. Shower abuse on me if you must but not him.
Siddharth began to be the victim of hate tweets and messages on social media after his father left the country. He has been asked about the whereabouts of his father besides being trolled on the social media.
The budding actor had lashed out at those who targetted him on the social media saying, "What joy do ppl get from abusing on social media? Do they feel powerful, do they feel big, do they feel strong??," and thanked those who tweeted in support of him saying "For every ten tweets I get, 9 will be abuse, and 1 will be positive. Thank u to all those who send positivity!!"
Meanwhile, Mallya and Kingfisher Airlines Ltd on Wednesday submitted in a sealed cover a proposal for repayment of Rs. 4,000 crore out of the loan amount of Rs. 6,903 crore to the consortium of banks led by State Bank of India by September this year.
