Liquor baron Vijay Mallya has denied that he gave an interview to an English weekly newspaper in which he was quoted as saying that the time is not right for him to return to India. But the newspaper stood by its story.

In the interview, Mallya was quoted as saying, “I am an Indian to the core. Of course I want to return. But I’m not sure I’ll get a fair chance to present my side. But I hope that I return one day. India has given me everything. It made me Vijay Mallya.”

The day after the newspaper's reported interview, Mallya denied making a statement to it. He tweeted:
