Mallya is super religious. In fact, whenever there is any important event, personal or professional, he makes it a point to go only at an auspicious time. He also goes on the Sabarimala pilgrimage every year. Some also say that he visits the temple barefoot.

Vijay Mallya is noted for his successful bidding in auction of items that are considered of great historical value to India. In 2004, he placed the winning bid of £175,000 for the sword of Tipu Sultan at an auction in London, and brought it back to India.

Again in 2009, Mallya successfully bid for the belongings of Gandhi at approximately US$1.8 million, in a New York auction. “Bidded for country” is what he said in defense.
