Gautam Adani Become 2nd Richest Person In The World

Gautam Adani, a billionaire tycoon, has become the second-richest man in the world.

He replaces Jeff Bezos and Bernard Arnault with one whisker on Forbes. 

The net worth of the Adani Group chairman is now $155.5 billion (Rs12.37 lakh crore).

According to Forbes Real Time Billionaires List, Adani's net worth increased by $5.2 billion. This is a 3.49 percent increase.

Adani is just a few points ahead of Bernard Arnault, a French tycoon, and Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder. Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, holds the top spot on the Rich List.

Mukesh Ambani, chairman of Reliance Industries, is the second Indian to reach the top 10, with a net worth of $92.2 billion. 

This was the first time that an Asian had been ranked among the top three billionaires.
