Zhong Shanshan overtakes Mukesh Ambani to become Asia's richest person
NEW DELHI: Zhong Shanshan is a private billionaire who’s rarely quoted in the press.
Now, after an improbable career spanning journalism, mushroom farming and health care, he’s become Asia’s richest person, eclipsing India’s Mukesh Ambani and a group of Chinese tech titans including Jack Ma.
Zhong’s net worth has surged $70.9 billion this year to $77.8 billion, making him the 11th-richest person on the planet, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. It’s one of the fastest accumulations of wealth in history, and all the more remarkable considering that until this year he was little known outside of China.
Zhong, 66, isn’t involved in politics and his business interests aren’t entwined with other rich families such as the property tycoons, which is why he’s known locally as the “Lone Wolf.”
He owes his success to two unrelated fields. He took vaccine maker Beig Wantai Biological Pharmacy Enterprise Co public in April, then months later Nongfu Spring Co, a maker of bottled water, became one of Hong Kong’s hottest listings. Nongfu shares have jumped 155% since their debut, and Wantai’s are up more than 2,000%.
Ambani has also had an extraordinary year -- striking deals to transform his conglomerate Reliance Industries Ltd into a technology and e-commerce titan -- and seeing his fortune surge $18.3 billion to $76.9 billion.

Once the new farm bills come into effect, Mukeshbhai will again regain the top slot.
Our honorable PM will be so unhappy!
It is always the middle class who is in a sorry state of life , work through out the life and make someone rich.
Mukesh Ambani can become richer as long as he has sl ves in Delhi to work and enact laws benefitting him and he can bankroll them. It is the Indian middle-class which will suffer.
Even with our PM's support, Ambani is trailing..
very unfortunate for India. the PM has to address the farmers agitation and make more laws to benefit Ambani and Adani so that they regain their top position in the world. India has to show that it is rich and flourishing.
Ambani ka Chowkidar now working even hard 24x7 to regain his Master's wealth
If Mukesh Ambani becomes No.1 or No.2 what difference does it makes to Lives of average Indian who is struggling to meet end needs under this COVID situation :O Still Mr.Ambani will remain most powerful and rich man of India
I think the ruling party have to make more laws to help the Ambanis & Adanis.
Time for MANN KI BAAT for PM to address this issue of Mukesh Ambani.
Don't worry, Ambani will come to the top within few months.
A sad news for Modi after all his efforts.....

China's new found saviour.
Nothing is permanent. Tomorrow someone may overtake Shanshan !
His business strategy is "One big fish is killing small fishes", Soon he will follow his younger brother
BJP's election funding will come down if Ambanis are not doing well.
He should be banned by us, china has killed world economy. We all should say no to anything from china.
