"One of the largest investments in my life is in Tata Motors, which I have done in the last 15 months," said Jhunjhunwala.
"Tata Motors is going to lead the electric vehicle market not only in India, but also in the developing world. They are already leading and will be making affordable electric vehicles", he said, adding "I am an interested party, so take everything I say with a pinch of salt."
Jhunjhunwala says he remains "very bullish" about the future of the Indian markets. "We are just at the threshold of what I think is going to be one of the largest bull runs in India ever. India is changing and many people are investing in the change", he added.

Also known as the Warren Buffet of India, Rakesh Jhunjhunwala shed light on his investment in Nazara Technologies. He said that Nazara Tech was "cash positive" at the time of his investment in the company.
Highlighting the importance of viewing cash generation as an important criterion while investing, Jhunjhunwala said that Zomato's valuation was not justified.
Jhunjhunwala also gave his opinion on crypto currencies, saying that he believes no sovereign will ever let go off the power to issue currencies to any other entity. "Crypto can ever become a regular currency of exchange", he said.
