Possibly VJMs private aircraft is hometown is somewhere near the Bay Area.
Last year he made a trip between BOM- SFO 38 times, so not surprising to hear his callsigned changed to match his empire and airline name

Just curious, what's his private aircraft? BOM- SFO is quite long so he'd have to be using something with the legs for it if doing it non-stop.
If you're going through hell, keep going

More details on Wiki at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vijay_Mallya
He's the owner of United breweries http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Breweries_Group (The worlds second largest brewer which makes Kingfisher beer besides 100s of other brands), and hence also the chairman of Kingfisher airlines (part of the UB group) (www.flykingfisher.com).
He (through the UB Group) owns a number of private aircraft and maintains homes in several cities across the world and uses his corporate jets to fly between them.
