About Vikram Chatwal
Born in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia, Vikram Chatwal is a millionaire hotelier. He is best known for being the founder of the Vikram Chatwal Hotels group. His net worth has been estimated to be an impressive $50 Million. He is also a Manhattan socialite. Vikram is now a citizen of the US.
Vikram started his hotel business when he was 28 years of age. That was in 1999. Since then, he has opened nine luxury hotels in five cities in the US. The flagship of his hotel chain is the Dream Hotel. The first property he opened was the Time Hotel. Vikram is an avid socialite who mixes with a lot of people, including the most famous Hollywood celebrities. People from Hollywood would thus often stay at his luxury hotels when they are away on business. He is known to be particularly close to Kate Moss, Esther Canadas, Lindsay Lohan and Gisele Bundchen.
There were a lot of rumors about whom Vikram is going around with and his relationships, as he is among the most eligible bachelors now. However he married the model Priya Sachdev in 2005. Vikram held a 10 day celebration in three Indian cities one year later to celebrate his marriage anniversary.
He has acted in a few movies as well over the years both in Hollywood and Bollywood (the Indian film industry at Mumbai). Vikram has courted controversies too. He reportedly had to spend time in a rehab facility because of his alcohol addiction problems. Recently he was also arrested for arriving in airport with drugs.
