Right now, Vijay Mallya has the only option to save his Kingfisher Airlines by selling shares in the market and Heineken is interested to buy because they are interested to establish their company in India. They will also be able to hold the Indian market as a beer manufacturer.

This Amsterdam-based company holds a 37.38% stakes of UB Group, but right now UB Group’s any of the officials are not available to the media for any information. But Mallya is under pressure because his airlines workers are giving ultimatum to the owner for strikes.
