He had started to invest in the stock market in 2016 after completing his Class 12 from Slate – The School in Hyderabad. He started with Rs 2,000 and pumped in more money over the next two years.

He reportedly said “I invested around Rs 1.5 lakh over a period of two years. The market value of my shares had gone up to around Rs 13 lakh in two years.”

Then he sold shares worth Rs 8 lakh to start his company in 2017 and kept the rest of the money in the market and continued to invest from his earnings through his startup, as per TheWeekendLeader.
