Hamish McDonald, who wrote the “Polyester Prince” a book on the life of Dhirubhai Ambani, which was later, banned in India, has engaged himself in writing a sequel on Ambani brothers fight.
He has been in touch with various journalists in India to gather a lot of material and info on Murli Deora & Amar Singh.
Old Hamish McDonald watchers recount with glee an episode in the 90’s, when he was based in Delhi. On one of his many trips to Mumbai to gather material on Polyester Prince ,Murli Bhai is believed to have taken him out for dinner and then subsequently offered him a complimentary friend for the night, an offer which horrified the overzealous born- again Christian McDonald. Subsequent retaliation was the scathing diatribe on Dhirubhai Ambani.
