Deepak Roy, the prominent Indian spirits industry figure, has reportedly taken a 5% stake in the drinks group BDA, which produces Officer's Choice whisky.

The report, from Indian newspaper the Economic Times, said that Roy has also taken an executive role in the business and will become its vice-chairman and CEO from November.

Roy is one of the few personalities in the Indian drinks business whose profile can rival that of UB boss Vijay Mallya. Roy, who worked for Diageo for a decade, joined UB in 2002.

The Economic Times said he left UB in 2005 over differences with Mallya.

Neither BDA nor Roy commented on the reports.
