The business interests of L.K. Advani

While Advani does not hold a stake in any company, his daughter Pratibha runs Swayam Infotainment, a TV production company

Lal Krishna Advani, the former deputy prime minister and Bharatiya Janata Party leader, is seeking re-election from Gandhinagar in Gujarat. While Advani does not hold a stake in any company, his daughter Pratibha runs Swayam Infotainment Pvt. Ltd, a television production company. Advani’s wife Kamla is a director on the company’s board. Advani did not respond to an email query seeking comment.

Over the next month and a half, while voters elect a new government for India, Mint will profile the business interests of prominent politicians using data from the corporate affairs ministry’s database.
