Samir/Vineet Jain family gallops ahead in Forbes Richest 100 list

21 Oct,2016

It’s that time of the year when the Forbes India Rich List is released. The magazine volume, that’s scheduled to hit shopshelves today, has already revealed some numbers. That Mukesh Ambani continues to be the richest. And Acharya Balkrishna, the brain behind the slew of products bearing the Patanjali brand name, is in the Top 50, at #48.

 

So how do our media biggies fare?

 

We got some advance data from the magazine, and we learnt that there are just three whose primary source of wealth is in the media (or so we presume).

 

They are Subhash Chandra (at #18), the Jain Family at #36 and Kalanithi Maran at #40. Interestingly, and as per our headline, the Jain Family – Samir and Vineet Jain’s family – has moved from #57 to #36.

 

The others in the table below have investments in media but that’s not the primary source of wealth.
