The news comes on the back of the visionary founder expressing his views about the rise of gaming and e-sports in the country last month.

“Esports may be the opportunity to invest in, not IPL teams/cricket, which cost as much as EPL football clubs today. In my limited experience, the younger gen is less enamoured by cricket than my gen,” Kamath had written on X (formerly Twitter). However, the news seems to have not made much impact on the stock as it traded flat, at the time of writing.

Price Action: Nazara’s share price was up 0.21% to trade at ₹778.60 in early trade on Friday
