In 2007, he co-founded Car Dekho with his brother, which he said on the HT Smartcast program Minding My Business: The CEO Story had become a “billion-dollar corporation.”

When asked if he makes difficult business choices using his intellect or emotions, he said, “I believe I am both, depending on the situation. I am usually really objective. Concerning his brand’s expansion into other nations, he said, “We are now in South East Asia. Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines are three countries where we have previously conducted business. It’s been a terrific beginning.”
