About Robert Vadra
Of Scottish origin, Robert Vadra is an Indian businessman with an estimated net worth of $2.1 billion as of 2012.
He is known to be the son-in-law of Sonia Gandhi, a well known Indian politician who served as Indian National Congress’ President since 1998.
In 1997, he married Priyanka Gandhi who was just 13 years of age at that time. The couple eventually had two children named Raihan and Miraya. Vadra strongly denied any involvement in legislation and policy making which his wife’s family does. According to him, he is purely a businessman whose attention is entirely focused on his small business Artex, a company that specialises on exporting jewellery.
In 2008, he partnered with DLF Ltd which enabled him to enter the real estate industry. He then bought lands in Haryana and Rajasthan and acquire shares of stocks in a leading hotel company based in Delhi. Currently, he is the sole owner of Sky Light Hospitality Pvt Ltd, and part owner of Unitech.
Despite his success, Robert Vadra had to deal with a couple of tragedies in the past regarding his family. His sister Michelle died in 2001, his brother Richard died three years later and in 2009, his father Rajinder hanged himself.
