Industrialist Ratan Tata has denied that he had participated in the reception held for Bollywood stars Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor at the Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai on Tuesday evening
In a tweet on Thursday morning, India’s iconic industrialist said: “Media reports of my presence at the Saif-Kareena wedding. While I wish the couple the very best reports of my being present at the wedding are untrue! I was present at the Taj for a private dinner and the media has assumed that I was there for the wedding! Sometimes the media does get it wrong!!”
Several Web sites had displayed the pictures of Tata driving into the Taj the same evening.
Tata, who uses the handle @RNTata2000, is present on Twitter but not too active. His previous tweet was on October 12, where he said, in an obvious reference to corruption of politicians being under the limelight: “Corruption should be fought but I hope it will not be driven by rivalry. The law should apply to all equally and not selectively.”
His profile lists his personal interests as “aviation, automobiles, scuba diving and architectural design’’.
Prior to that, his earlier tweet on September 27 was in response to somebody who had asked him about the “best car” he had ever driven and how long would it take Tata Motors to take on “BMW audi n Merc”.
Tata’s response to @GADIANIKHIL: Difficult to name “best car”. Have driven many which impressed me. TML working hard to produce higher-end cars.”
This query was triggered by Tata’s tweet earlier in the day: “Memorable day today. Launch of Jaguar’s new F-type sports car and new Range Rover. Gr8 +ve response. Gr8 sense of pride for all at JLR!’’
