Shares in United Spirits surge as much as 9.8 percent to their highest since July 2011.
Gains come after Bloomberg News on Friday reported Diageo Plc is in advanced talks to buy a stake in the domestic spirits maker controlled by billionaire Vijay Mallya, citing four unidentified people with knowledge of the matter.
"We do not comment on such speculation," a UB Group spokesman said when contacted about the report.
A Diageo spokesman offered a "no comment" when contacted.
