KUALA LUMPUR: Telecommunications billionaire T. Ananda Krishnan is now the richest man in Malaysia.
With a fortune estimated to be around RM30.56 billion, he takes over the top spot previously held by ‘Sugar King’ Tan Sri Robert Kuok.
A research conducted by Chinese daily Nanyang Siang Pau showed that Ananda received a boost in his wealth when Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd was listed on the Bursa Malaysia last year.
