He is married to Yasmeen. They have 2 children- Rishad and Tariq. In his own words you can see the success story of his life.

The stress that a young person faces today while beginning his or her career is the same as the last generation faced at the time of retirement. I have myself found that that my job has become enormously more complex over the last two or three years.  Along with mutual alertness, physical fitness will also assume a great importance in your life.  You will need lots of energy to deal with challenges.  Unless you take care of yourself there is no way you can take care of others.– Azim H. Premji

Chairman of UB Group

He has 2 wives and 3 children. Siddhartha is the eldest and the only son.  Sameera (mom of Siddhartha) is Vijay’s first wife. His second wife is Rekha. Vijay owns 26 houses, all over the world.

I go with the flow, really. I love what I do. To me, work is not stress. I can choose to take time off when I want, but I just enjoy what I do so much. My body tells me when to slow down. Trust me; I’m built like a tank. I’ve got a lot of energy; I can go many late nights in a row. But you know, when I feel that I need to get a good night’s sleep or maybe just chill for a day or two I just do it, and everybody around me who works with me appreciates and realizes that.– Vijay Mallya
