"If I take my whole portfolio to India, I believe I can make it 10 times bigger in just five years because India is so big and the whole world is now concentrating on India. I am sure if and when I take my concept there, I can mint money in this business," says Gupta.
But right now, expansion is Canada is his only goal, he adds.
