Bharatpe vs Kotak: Ashneer Grover calls Uday Kotak a legend, says no one understands finance better in India

Ashneer Grover, embattled co-founder of fintech BharatPe, heaped praise on banker Uday Kotak, calling him a legend, even as he is embroiled in a legal tussle with him.

Grover, in response to a LinkedIn post on Kotak, said the banker was a legend. "I had the fortune of starting my career in Kotak -- 7 years -- and can tell you no one understands or does finance better in India," he added.

The original post was posted a week ago by Radhika Bajoria, a communications professional. Grover seems to have commented on this post four days ago.

His remarks assume significance as they come after Moneycontrol reported on January 9 that Grover and his wife Madhuri Jain Grover had sent a legal notice to the Kotak Mahindra Bank MD and CEO and his senior management, accusing the lender of failing to secure financing and allocation of shares in an IPO launched by beauty firm Nykaa.
