New Delhi: Industrialist Gautam Adani has become the world’s fifth richest person. He has overtaken legendary investor Warren Buffett, according to Forbes data.

According to Forbes, Warren Buffett’s net worth stood at $121.7 billion. Adani’s estimated $123.7 billion net worth makes him the richest person in India.

He is $19 billion wealthier than the country’s number 2, Mukesh Ambani (who’s worth an estimated $104.7 billion), Forbes said in a report.

As shares of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway fell 2% on Friday amid a wider decline in the US stock market, Adani surpassed him.
