There are reports that he is eager to buy out his RR partners.
Suresh Chellaram has 44.2 per cent and Manoj Badale 32.4 per cent, while Lachlan Murdoch (a son of media magnate Rupert Murdoch) and Kundra-Shetty both own 11.7 per cent.
Kundra says his statement was misconstrued.
A journalist had informed Kundra that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had allegedly agreed to clear the legal issues it had with RR if Chellaram gave up his ownership share. BCCI allegedly believed that Chellaram was a proxy shareholder for the controversial former IPL chairman Lalit Modi.
Kundra, being well-acquainted with Chellaram, refuted this claim. That's when the journalist asked him if he would buy the shares if Chellaram decided to sell.
"I told him if the price was right then I would buy Suresh's shares only in the company because at the right price the future is still bright," says Kundra.
