Vikram Chatwal was born in Ethiopia to Indian Sikh parents who moved to Montreal and then finally settled in New York. In other words, during his stint at Wharton, Chatwal was just one operation short of a Tabard bid.
The hotelier, most known these days for making headlines with alleged girlfriend Lindsay Lohan, has been formerly linked to models Kate Moss and Gisele Bündchen, and has been known to hang around P. Diddy Combs Puff, Naomi Campbell and President Bill Clinton. No big.
In a recent New York Times feature, Chatwal maintains that his partying days are over, but unless he’s dating Lohan’s British-accented identical twin, we’re not buying it. Aside from his line of hotels, Chatwal’s notable achievements have included being the first Sikh model to grace the cover of Vogue, a minor role in Zoolander, a 10-day, 3-city wedding to now-separated wife Priya Sachdev, and two trips to rehab.
